For -10k (probably more like -15k) I wanted to look for lightly used MT e90, but there was never any inventory locally.

Didn't think about +10k at all, since the X1 already came at somewhat more...

Base macan is about 5k more than base X3 35i. And no leather on the base X3 as mentioned above.

If you get m-sport, you don't have to pay additional $600 for wheels, this is just for 19in ones.

So the difference between the m-sport and sport is $600. And (not quite sure) with the sport line,...

The power is fine on either one, obviously better on 35i. Just don't expect the e90/e46 handling, can't happen. It is very good for an SUV though.

Yes, some tire places refuse to patch. I usually go to Discount Tire and they had different policies on different brands. Pirellis for instance, they didn't want to patch.

This probably doesn't help you much, but just FYI with M-sport on X3 you are not getting sport suspension.

The two are just different. Go with X3 if you need a midsize SUV (on the smaller side). X1 is more of a hatchback. Absolutely disagree with some of the handling comments above . X1 handles...

my opinion: 35i has a better engine, 28i has a better transmission. The difference in price you know, so test and decide. M models come with sport suspension, so it is going to be different.

Well, in general there is not much incentive for them to order it for you at invoice. Unless, they are trying to meet some volume target or something.

BTW, not all invoices are created equal....

why do you need to flash it, what's wrong with the default.

Granted I have the 8 speed but it shifts as good as an auto can. Yes, I want a manual, but no flash would fix that. And I'm not saying...

What was the dashboard reading just before the 9.5K change. Was it close to 8000 miles?
If so, I don't see a problem, just get the service at 17.5k.

On this car 7k off sticker is probably about 2.5k or so below invoice, before the incentive.
I don't know, seems pretty agressive but you can always try!

Yes, it absorbs imperfections pretty well. And while the ride is stiffer compared to Q5, for instance, it is quite softer than our X1
