X1 Loaner Car

Hi Guys,

Got a brand new X1 2.8 Xdrive loaner car today when I took my E90 330i to the dealer for service. The X1 definitely has a smoother ride compared to a E90 with sports package.
The steering is very similar to E90. In fact the dashboard layout is almost identical.
Power delivery is not as smooth as a inline-6 maybe due to turbo lag/kick in when
pushed hard. The car is not as refined in comparison to a 3 Series. The wind noise is is evident on highway from windshield. However, the car drives well and is a lot of fun. The sticker says 42K which is a little pricy in my opion. Just my 2 cents to share.
