I get the sense you are considering something else to drive to work simply
on the fact that you want less commute time.
Thus, get in the HOV lane. :)
Otherwise, you would drive your X1 to work.

Until you find something "else" that you love, keep the X1. :)
It will be fine sitting, but you'll have to maintain the battery with a tender.

I use ECO mode for the same reason too, with some passengers.
What I find interesting is that ECO stays on in Sports mode, but is automatically disabled when you disable traction control.

I think it needs to be pointed out that there is a difference between Sirius, XM and SiriusXM.

Sirius and XM merged about 10 years ago which created the company SiriusXM.

But modern vehicles...

My 2013 is Sirius.
So I would guess you'd be the same, on the original Sirius Satellites, not the XM satellites.
Which is better for us folks up North. :) :thumbup:

I hate hearing that one flat tire replacement, requires all 4 wheels to be replaced.
Worst case scenario is to only replace two tires on the same axel.

I'll be keeping any eye out for them for sure when it comes.

I'm not a mechanic by any means, or a brake expert, but may I ask why you want to upgrade the brakes?
Are you auto crossing or tracking your X1?

From my understanding, higher end brakes will help...

I've had mine replaced once already. It won't be the last time.
But I can't tell the difference. It was not an OEM replacement.

What year is your X1?
The only thing that might cause trouble is the waterpump, but I think the N55 has been fairly rock solid in the X1 since the LCI in 2013.
