The X1 is also missing a lot of features, standard but also available, compared to a new X3 (not so much my generation). No rear seat vents, no power tailgate option are the two that disappoint me the most. But I bet a fair amount of other stuff is missing too.
Still, it does seem to be a pretty good deal for a brand new BMW. You can push an X3's price up quite high with options.
