Mein Auto: A few cars
Just bought an X1 and I have a few questions.

Greetings. I was able to find a really nice 2015 X1 35i with the Ultimate package and the M Sport package. Southern car with 14,000 miles. It also has 19" style 225 wheels. I usually do a lot of research on my cars prior to purchase and I know quite a bit about this car, but I don't have a lot of time right now and I cannot seem to find one piece of information.

Will 17" style 317 wheels fit this car? I understand that the brakes are a bit bigger than the X1 28i brakes. I usually see the 317 on the X1 28i.

I also need some opinions. Should I buy the maintenance refresh package from my local dealership for $700.00? The question almost seems silly, but I don't have the manual yet. Therefore, I cannot determine if I will spend more than $700.00 for service by 10/2018 or 50,000 miles.

The car is being shipped and I will receive it on 02/11/2016.

Thanks for your time and assistance.

Yes to 17" rims, they will fit over the front brakes.
If you buy aftermarket, just make sure they match the stock OEM rim specs that BMW has for their 17's.

This site has good info on wheel sizes for BMW OEM rims.

If you have access to a good indy shop, I would consider that for service after the free maintenance expires. Even better though, consider DIY, if you have the tools and driveway/garage space.

Thanks for the info.

I have looked at the wheel reference chart over the years, so naturally I went there first. For some reason, it was hard to find anything regarding wheels for this car. Not that it matters, but I don't think the 225s are even listed on the BMW Wheel Style reference site.

BMW's maintenance plan does not transfer to the second owner. I think my service guy said as of 2015, it does not automatically transfer. The dealership offered the remainder of the maintenance plan to me for $700.00. The car will be under warranty for some time, so I will take it to the dealership for the service during that time. When the warranty is over, I will use my indy guy. Just my preference.

Again, thank you.

My current winter set up is my X3 with snow tires. I sold it to a family member though, so I will need to get a winter set up for the X1 when he takes the car.

So what do you plan on using the 17's for? Are you getting rid of the 19's? Or just a style preference?

I'm keeping the 19s. I really like them. I'd just like to have a winter set. The weather has been great all winter, and the day before my X1 arrives, NE Ohio gets hammered.

I actually have a set of style 150s with tires and TPMS from my X3 that I'm selling.

Thank you. I just want to be sure that the X1 35i with Msport will accept OEM 17s. Based on the responses, I think they will. I read that the brakes are bigger on the 35i and I didn't want to buy wheels that I cannot use. I would love to find a set of steelies.

Your brakes are all 335.

Not all 17s fit...so I'm not sure one can definitively say those will without physically trying.

Worse-case, you're probably looking at adding a small spacer (which you have plenty of room to do) in order to have them work. So I wouldn't worry about it.

Personally, I'd never pay $700 for a few oil changes and maybe a set of plugs.

Thanks!!! That's what I thought. I think I found my answer. The wheels I intend to buy are here:

Agreed. Plus, I don't know what the standard is for BMW to replace the brakes for free (included in the service plan), but I'd be willing to bet they wouldn't get there by 50,000 miles. I bought cryo-treated rotors and ceramic pads for my X3 and they have over 70,000 miles on them. I will put the same type of set up on the X1 when the time comes.

I am new to this particular BMW, so while I know most of the important stuff, I am not familiar with the little bits of knowledge that come with trial and error. Your help is greatly appreciated. If you look up my X3 posts, you'll see I have done a lot of stuff that required trial and error.

How much did you pay for your car? Is it a CPO from a dealer? Or is this via a private sale?

Thanks

It's not CPO. I bought it from Hendrick Hyundai in North Charleston, SC. They shipped it to my door. It arrived Thursday. It still has a lot of warranty left, but CPO would have been nice. The previous owner was an Airforce pilot. I believe he bought it in Germany. I was told he traded it in for a low mileage Porsche Cayenne. Anyway, it is evident that he took really good care of the car.
