Just got back from the show. Much to my disappointment, all of the BMW's were closed (right next to them Jaguar had XKR-S coupe and cab opened) so I did not get to sit inside. Judging outside appearance only, I did not like the orange car in the pics above - it's OK, but just doesn't have a catch to it. I loved the blue car however, so I guess M package is a must for me if I get around to getting X1. I'm going to call BMW of Manhattan rep next week and see what needs to be done (apparently they already have a few people in line for X1).
P.S. I know its not related to this section, but M5... no words, that car is gorgeous...
