IMO, the E84 is superior. Depends on how you look at it. The E84 drives more like the E90 and is more engaging to drive. The F30 offers more options and refinement, like Sport + mode and also options that can't be had in the E84 like dynamic suspension and variable steering.

Do yourself a favor and drive both, then report back. If you still can't tell, go with better valued X1.

If you are considering a manual trans, there's no choice as the X1 is not available with a manual. If you want the 35i, then the F30 has a better transmission for it right now.
