Mein Auto: 2008 X3, 2009 128i
My wife and I test drove an X1 a couple of weeks ago. We both liked the look of it very much. That being said, it is definitely smaller and has less cargo space than our 2008 X3, and neither one of us was very impressed with the interior - we thought it seemed not up to the standard we would expect for a car costing what the X1s cost. After returning to our X3, the X3 felt more solid and comfortable than the X1. I will say the X1 drove very nicely, handled well, and had plenty of power equipped with the 4 cylinder engine. It would definitely put a smile on your face with the twin turbo 6. If you are even considering the X1, test drive it, then get back into your X3. I think that more than any one thing convinced us we are not yet ready to trade down to the X1.
