great stuff

Thanks for this thread and all the input. I currently own an '07 X3 and looking for a change up. Test drove the Audi A7 and have my eyes on a '13 GT. I've had enough of the SAV/SUV ride and am...

Teleskier, it is clear to my eyes, side by side, that the X1 looks heftier than the A3. I think an 80 year old with poor eyes could tell you the X1, in physical appearance, is the bigger car.

You are in luck. As I pulled into the parking garage last night I located both a 3 wagon and an A3. Parked next to each and took some photos with my phone. The garage (under ground) was dark but...

I'm an '07 X3 owner and thoroughly enjoy my car, however, like you, I've been eyeing the X1 for years. I especially wanted the diesel stateside, but alas, that's not going to be the case for now.

I like it

I was in Darmstadt a few weeks back and hit the showroom just to have a look-see. Size wise it's perfect for me. I love the angled crease down the body side. I think the tail is more attractive...

late '11 launch

I have a hunch when/if the X1 arrives stateside it won't be until July or later.

offer it and they will come

park a sparkly new X1 at my healthclub, tell admirers it's a diesel and gets 40+mpg yet sounds, drives and handles like any petrol bimmer and I guarantee you my buddies will be jealous.

ditto

I'm near the point of being so "over it" with regards to news on the X1 in the States. I've been pursuing the dream for 18 months and the lack of any real news is frustrating, and makes me turn an...

No X1 stateside until 2011?

So says my contact at the local dealer who put in a call to his BMW rep as I threatened I may need to leave the BMW brand for lack of an ideal option for me. I'm bummed about the news. I just can't...

news???

hello, McFly, something? Anything? C'mon BMW give us something to whet our whistle. That A3 TDI coming stateside later this year is looking more tempting.

The Q5 is too pricey in the low 40's. I'm hoping the X1 would be low 30's, perhaps mid 30's with some nice add-ons. That's where my budget fits these days. I find it surprising the number of...

Now that would suck. My X3 lease is up autumn '09 and I was looking forward to the X1. My budget will probably rule out another X3. I don't want to necessarily go the Clubman route but what is a...

I love my current X3 but when the lease expires in fall '09 I hope this X1 in diesel is available in the states. I think the size and engine options can be attractive for those that are eco friendly...

Yep. I bought my '07 X3 in September. Now has 12k mi (was a loaner). The hesitation is most severe at cold engine or when slowing, and then gassing up out of a turn. My home is on a 30 degree, 30...
