Will the X1 surpass the X3?

Now that I have ordered an X1, I keep looking for one IRL, not just on the dealer lot. So, I perk up every time I see a BMW SAV. I have noticed tons of 3s on the road. In my part of town, I once counted 5 in a one mile stretch. I always, literally, see at least two. I see far fewer 5s and only one 6. Still haven't seen an X1, which is pretty cool. I should get mine in early Oct and look forward to bring the new kid! Point of reference, our metro area population (inc 12 counties) is 1.5 million, so we're not a big city. We only have one BMW dealer in the area.
One reason I'm getting the 1 is because it looks completely unlike any other car on the road. Another is the novelty of a rare model. I drive a not very special VW now, and am bothered just a little when I see the same model/color combo. The idea of seeing a half dozen cars just like mine every time I run an errand will drive me crazy! I plan on buying, not leasing, but will sell before it is no longer under warranty so resale matters to me
Do you think the X1 will become as commonplace as the X3 in the next 2 years? BTW, I see so many 3series sedans it's amazing. It's the ubiquitous luxury car around here. Would have to kill resale values. Is everyone just leasing?
