are owners the only ones that prefer the E84 over F48 X1

Every review I've read about the F48 says that it is a ungrade to the E84. I personally like the way the E84 looks compared to the F48, by a far margin. Perhaps the reviews are speaking from a...

Thanks guys. Wow! with only 300 or so manuals and half of those being RWD, at best, it doesn't look like I'll ever come across one locally, though I did about a year ago. Should have scored it, but...

Hi everyone.

Thinking of a E91 wagon and as title says interested in non X-drive and Manual transmission only.

looks more like the prior E84 X1, but those side windows are even shorter. I think the E84 looks much better, though I'm biased since I have an E84.

I'm not sure why there is an argument of which car is better, Accord or 3 Series.

Isn't clear that BMW offers less value but a better driving experience for the minority who can feel it?

Yes...

glad it's gone, but there shouldn't be any need for "conditioner" esp at that low mileage. changing the fluid often is good idea, but 30K might be overkill. Just check the condition of the fluid...

that is a very good price! Grab it.

Most dealers want $500-$1000 over invoice plus all fees. this is 2-3K less than than, if I assume invoice is 92.5% of MSRP.

If it's the coil, misses would be more pronounced and likely trigger the SES light.

I bet it's the drive shaft guibo/flex disk (rubber coupler) that has started crack. How many miles on the car?

Mine was acting up and it was the Final Stage Unit as suspected. It's a weak link in BMW HVAC systems.

Report back on what the dealer says.

Good to know, thanks. I'll disconnect the muffler to see what it sounds like, I'm assuming there is a flange that can be unbolted. Did you run a straight pipe out the back?

Thanks, maybe I'm getting the 8-spd mixed up with the N20. When was the N20 introduced? 2014 MY?

Was/is a manual transmission offered in the F25?
