What color X1 did you order?

Just curious which colors will be popular. I had to pool the 2 blacks and 2 whites together due to limited # of poll options...

It's a toss-up right now between Valencia Orange and Alpine White.
Getting the Sport Line. Actually like the look of that better than the M Sport.

I would love to see some side-by-side comparison pics between the blues, but it's unlikely a dealer will stock them at the same time...

Alpine White/Black. I haven't seen one in person, but from pictures, the AW M-sport looks great.

Midnight blue look so good in person! Good enough for me to drop $550 to order that instead of Alpine White!

I went with the Alpine White since I like the color and admittedly I'm somewhat frugal/cheap and didn't want to pay more for a metallic color. I went with the black interior since I thought beige would show too much dirt. (If I could have gotten a red interior without buying additional packages, I may have splurged for that and gone with a black exterior)

If all of the colors were the same price, I probably would have gone for the midnight blue but if I was just going to be leasing the car, I may have tried out the Valencia Orange.

Mightnight blue .
I love the orange but would be afarid of standing out too much. And what's with this car having so many blue/black/white shades but no reds?

Yes, that's strange. They did have it in Vermillion Red pre LCI, maybe it didn't sell well? I think it looks gorgeous: http://e84.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=430023

I've seen the X1 in Alpinweiß and tested one in Midnight Blue. I don't particularly care for the former, I think the Valencia or other brighter colours suit the more "athletic" demeanour of the vehicle.

Replacing my 2007 Black Sapphire X3 with a 2013 Black Sapphire X1. I love it, and it never seems to date the vehicle.

Mine is Mineral Grey, and my wife absolutely loves it. Just came back from a retreat meeting, and everyone who walked by said how rich and beautiful the color was. Black and White colors are nice as well, and would have been my next choices after Mineral Grey.

We ordered one in Marrakesh Brown and took delivery Wednesday night. It's a gorgeous color and one of the most original colors I've ever seen.

Wow Midnight Blue is tied for first with White - and I guess it would be in first if White was split between Mineral and Alpine...of course it is a small sample. For me it is ironic because initially I ordered Mineral Grey but I changed it to Midnight Blue before it went into production. It seemed like everywhere I looked I saw not only BMWs in Grey but a ton of other colors. So I switched to the Blue so I wouldn't get lost in a sea of gray/silver cars....also why I wouldn't want Black or White...

Looks like I'll be waving at my share of other Midnight Blue X1s!

That might be a while - I STILL have yet to see another X1 on the road, much less one that color!

When we picked ours up yesterday our dealer had 4 other x1's in midnight blue. It was very strange. Luckily we live 45minutes away so we probably wont see a twin anytime soon.

Looking around at So Cal BMW inventory for X1s, most Midnight Blues I see are the 35. Anyway, obviously there are very few on the road at this point in the US. Give it a year or so...

Looks like a lot of dealers have exactly the same Midnight Blue 35i configuration for $46,995 (xLine, Terra Leather, Premium, Technology). I wonder if this config was pre-configured and pushed by BMWNA as a demo...

We visited 3 dealers one as far as 250 miles from the other and they all initially got a white 28i and the decked out 35i. I believe those were the first demo cars sent. Funny enough at all 3 dealers the decked out 35i had yet to sell almost 2 months later. (I was watching inventory closely whole waiting for our car to come in.
