Exclamation 2008 325xit smoke and smell

Bought a used wagon with 92k miles a couple of months ago from a non BMW dealer. Nope, I didn't have it checked out by a mechanic because apparently I'm a glutton for punishment. Car ran great, but I...

Don't worry, I came to my senses and am keeping my X1. I was just posting my experience. I drove the Mini and it couldn't compare to my car. I also got an offer from carbuyco for 23k! That was...

Trading in a 2013?

I ordered my '13 s28 Xline almost a year ago. I took delivery last Oct. I have really enjoyed driving it the past 10 months, but my eye is already wandering. MPG has never been as anticipated, I...

The X-line upgrade is only $1900. For me, the exterior details made all the difference between a car I liked and one I totally loved. I worried about the Oyster interior since I haul around a...

It is more like a thinly striped dark brown paint than metal copper. In direct sunlight in does have a nice glitter/iridescence. I can't get a good picture of it. Too subtle. I don't like wood grain...

The X1 is the first BMW I ever loved at first sight. I never considered buying/driving a BMW. Not due to the price, but I haven't liked the look of any one I ever saw, except maybe for the funky...

Saw my first other X1 today. The first of many I'm sure. Looked like Mineral White with red interior. Must have been Sportline. Very, very nice combo. The fact that it is the opposite of my Jet Black...

Picked up my X1 yesterday. It was ready on Oct.5, so 39 days from order to delivery. It arrived in Baltimore 9/28 and took a week to get to my dealer here in KY. The car is a stunner, BTW!

Still haven't seen an X1, but the dealer has sold 2 or 3 of their stock according to autotrader. Not sure if that's accurate. My car should be at the dealership in the next few days. It arrived in...

I wonder why the dealer with your deposit didn't offer to order the car you wanted. All the cars are coming from the same factory. I had ordered the wrong trim and was able to change my order with my...

Ordered 8/27 and finished production 9/6. It's been sitting at port, so I hope it will make that 9/16 ship mentioned above. Early October delivery would be great!

Will the X1 surpass the X3?

Now that I have ordered an X1, I keep looking for one IRL, not just on the dealer lot. So, I perk up every time I see a BMW SAV. I have noticed tons of 3s on the road. In my part of town, I once...

I found some on EBay. They appeared to be Taiwanese made parts sold by a Chinese company. That was an issue for me. Too paranoid to order from unknown "companies" overseas. The parts were just $300....
