We traded in our X1 for a used 550i. Needed a new child's car seat and the X1 just didn't have the room in the back seat, plus I got really sick of the lag. The 550i has no lag at all (although a...

We chose the 4cyl for similar reasons, improved MPG, cheaper, etc. Added the BMS unit so acceleration is more comparable to 6cyl now but still not the same... We're not really seeing the MPG...
