I am about ten miles from the dealership and losing my front end was not what I wanted to do on the interstate. Since I did not know what it was, it seemed like the smart thing to do.

Where is X1 made and what is an approximate delivery time?

Is the X1 made in Europe and how long is the delivery time?

Do they usually come close to the estimated delivery time? They were early on my 2013 X3 and late on another one a friend got.
