I wonder how the X1 will be sold side by side with the F31. They are essentially the same car, yet the X1 offers a slightly higher-up driving position, etc.
I am curious about this too. If the pricing of the E91 is any indication the X1 should undercut the F31 by 5-6 grand. The F31 will be a bit larger (especially in the back hatch).

Also given that the X1 is not going to be available with a manual tranny I won't be surprised if the F31 is also auto only.

When it's time to replace my wife's car this is exactly the comparison I will be making (among others of course). At that price point I would most likely get the X1.
