Mein Auto: 2007 X3
I recently had my 2007 X3 in for service and they gave me an X1 4cyl FWD with sport and technology packages. $42k, no xenons, no heated steering wheel, the transmission is constantly shifting, the annoying start/stop function that defaults to on that I constantly turned off because the car wouldn't start fast enough after I took my foot off the brake. No thanks. The E83 is a better built vehicle--it's more solid, and after driving the X1, makes me deal with the annoying 6sp a little easier.

The 4cyl engine seems good on it's own, but all the other annoyances ruin it.
