Yah, ruts are a problem but that's not the X1's fault... Just the physics of ruts in snow. I've been loving my X1 in the snow as I posted a while back. Since then we've had a number of significant...

I'd guess they're running into the issues with the stress limits of the engine mentioned in another thread.

I don't know the difference between the old and the new, but I do know that many of the functions of the iOS app don't work with the X1.

It's a judgement call, I'd say. With out a doubt, more stuff means more stuff to break... That's just basic math.

That said, I really enjoy a lot of the features.

I think the M wheel you have should work, based on what I've read.

Do folks flash their brights at you?

Now that winter is coming it's getting darker earlier and I'm putting more miles on my X1 in the dark and I've noticed that often oncoming cars flash their brights at me. I assume they think I have...

2012 Miata. And I almost bought a Boxster Spyder today but I think I'm going to wait for next year. My wife just got a TT, I guess that counts too.

Wow, that's quite low. It's also odd that it used to be in the 20s and now dropped. What transmission mode are you driving in? Has there been a lot of start/stop driving lately?
