Specifically regarding the X1, I really didn't like the base stereo. As I mentioned in another post somewhere, the biggest downfall of the base stereo for me was the sound staging. It sounded like it...

I'm very close to ordering an X1 myself, but holding out to test drive it before I make a final decision, especially regarding engine choice. Can you tell us which engine you chose and why?
