The BMW X1 --- Why?

I'm interested in hearing from those of you that puled the trigger, and those that are close. I have a 2005 E46 325i and started looking at new BMWs out of a desire for a few creature comforts to ease my arthritic hands. Namely AWD (so I can stop swapping wheels and tires), an Auto transmission and a heated steering wheel. So the X1 ticked all the boxes.

I then was tempted into the new F30 3 series, but I've come to my senses. Not that the F30 is bad, but as I looked, I realized that this E84 is something of a bargain. I can set up the 2.8 with plenty of options and come in around $40k. That's about $7k less than a comparable optioned F30, and in the F30, I'd feel like I was missing something with all of the option boxes left un-ticked! lol

So, what is it that you really love about the X1? What do you hate? Any regrets?
