I'm just over 20K now and lifetime MPG is 28.3. If I get below 28 mpg on a tank I feel like it's bad week where the traffic gods got me (Los Angeles resident).

This is the one related to the power brakes? I had it done. At least, I think I did. When I picked up the X1 at the end of the day the SA was not around. The paperwork listed the recall work,...

On my 2013 X1 with iDrive, under the Bluetooth menu, "Office" is not an option. Just "telephone" and "Audio." I have the separate OFFICE selection, but it doesn't show the phone...I make calls and...

I'm sure you have your reasons, but why wouldn't you order? That's part of the fun. Get the car you want. After ordering my X1, first car I've ever ordered, I'd prefer to do that in the future than...

In the first few months after the X1 went on sale in the US, some of us who bought the X1 posted on here about small rattles/crackles, especially from the dash around the stereo. I know I experienced...

I see it. Looks like BMW realized they don't need two browns, so they've combined Sparkling Bronze and Marrakesh Brown for Sparkling Brown. There's something amusing to me about that name. It's like...

I'm not great at math so I have to break it down for myself this way -

Re #4 - is there a recall for the 'engine'? There is a recall for the brakes on some N20 models. But I'm not aware of an engine-related recall.

If it's the Tiguan engine, as someone suggests, I wonder if it will get Tiguan MPG, which is not so hot. Something like 22/27. So you'd have a less powerful car than the X1 28 with worse MPG.
