Mein Auto: I wish it was a Bimmer
New vs Used

I'm in the market for an X1, and I can't for the life of me figure out which way to go. I've configured a 2014 X1, and the price is reasonable. I'm also looking in the used market, which seems to be demos or program cars (loaner vehicles for dealerships).

Here's what gets me. The new X1 I configured is a28i Xdrive, with just a few options (heated seats, servotronic, power seats). The used X1's are also 28i Xdrive, but usually have extras (like the preferred or ultimate package, moonroof). The price works out to be the same.

So, I ask you - would you go for the new model, or buy used? Most of the used ones I've found have between 800-6000 miles, still have the remainder of the original warranty, and have had all their scheduled maintenance.

I would buy used if you can find one to your liking...easier said than done depending on your requirements.

New vs Used

I'm always concerned with how used cars were driven during the break in period. Loaners are treated like **** so be careful. There is probably more wear on the engine than the mileage would suggest.
