So they added options for All Season tires or Performance tires and made the paddle shifter option standard (as it was originally meant to be).

Cool! Thanks for this.

Logical updates. When I was pleading my case over the missing paddles, I argued profusely that they should have been standard (as originally advertised), with the option to delete them for those who don't want them. I can't imagine many will choose the 710 wheel.

Too bad some of us had to suffer before BMW got it right.

I assume all-season tires will last longer than performance tires and is more suitable for commuting type driving. Is that correct? and how much do they last longer?

A/S tires on the MSport will sell well in northern climates. I saw a great looking msport at the dealer, and I would have taken that one but not with tires and rims that I need to swap out in the winter

If I was on the fence that statement would worry me, since prices are usually adjusted upwards. But it's kind of early in the model year to already change the pricing, unless the sales are that good? I guess one can always lock today's prices by placing an order.

@tim330i are you sure they're changing pricing?

I never said the pricing was changing. Just that we would have updating pricing and ordering guides to reflect the changes in options.

Ahhh, you guys got me worried. If BMW does decide to change pricing, is the moment the announcement makes it out, it's done, or do you have a day or two of grace time to work a deal with a dealer? I'm planning on ordering my X1 for ED in a few days but it Iooks like Nov 1st BMW iis starting a 'Happy New Year' special and I'm hoping it covers the X1 and works with ED.

Edit: looks like pricing will in fact change for all X1s - starting January, price increased by $150 (source: Ask-a-dealer forum)

I'm in the same boat. I'm pricing some all season tires now so I can go up to the slopes this winter. If they ha it earlier I wouldn't have to spend the extra money. I just have to decide I just want to purchase the tires or should I go for new rims and tires.

I don't "plan" on driving in much snow so I went with the conti's, if I was going to the slopes and could afford it, I would go 17" rim on a set of snow tires, the 18" rim gives the tire no kindof sidewall.
