I also want to hear more about the comparo 328i SportWagon and the X1. Obviously the engine and the tranny are the same (assuming we won't get a wagon with a stick). The rest of the X1 is based on the old 3 series' bones. Hardly something to complain about. But, all that said, I believe the wagon will be a better car than the X1 and, IMHO, better looking too. Ok it is likely going to cost us at least $7,000 more (based on an estimated $2,300 difference between a sedan and wagon) . Is it worth it? The Europeans do not seem to have the cost advantage (actually I think that in some countries the X1 is a few K more expensive than the 328 Touring) and have bought over 250,000 X1's! This X1 is selling like hot cakes!
I am not completely sure yet myself but I am leaning toward the X1. Do others have similar thoughts?
