Relax It's a chassis not yogurt. It doesn't have a shelf life.

True. The X1 initially came out in late 2008 as a 2009 model. So yes, it runs on older technology although the N20 4-cyl and drivetrain is new.

It is based on the E90, to me that is an advantage. The AWD models even come with hydraulic power steering.

I know you are right and after owning for a month I feel sure I wouldn't look back. The idea of the x1 is exciting with lower price, possibility of Euro Delivery and I also like the upright seating. Last hang up is cargo space vs fun factor or x3 vs x1.

The X1 is one of several BMWs not available for European Delivery.

Euro Delivery noted below on the website which states 2000 savings on the sDrive. I checked just now so maybe something has changed.

X1 is available for ED. However, right now they will come out of dealer allocation and so the ED discounts typically found may not be possible.

ED Discount

Any idea concerning time frame for "normal " discounts? I am guessing when dealers are fully stocked so maybe November-December.
