1. I am 5'8" and the driver's side mirror does not adjust close enough for me to see the side of the car.

6. There is no way to lock up the car except with the remote. And there is only 1 button inside to cycle through locking and unlocking the car. Even our old $14000 2004 Scion had lock/unlock buttons on either front door and allowed anyone to lock up the car without the key.

9. There is no water temperature gauge. Lots of cars are missing that nowadays, but at least they give you a little blue light that tells you when the engine is cold. No such light in the X1 though.
1, similar mirror problem for me, i have to turn my head much more than what i do when driving other car. 6, actually you can push that little "nut" on each door down manually, i know it is stupid.......7, i do think the water temperature is necessary.
