Swapping Seats/Common Issues

Recently purchased a 2013 X1 sDrive with 38k. I got a good price on it. My only gripe is the seats.

What seats can I swap with the pleather ones it came with?

Also, what are some common issues to expect?

Depends on what you're looking for in the seats. E84 came with cloth seats in Europe and also comes with leather seats in North America. If you want OEM then I think your only option is either dealer or eBay. Otherwise find a place that can reupholster your existing seats, or just find a suitable cover.

As for issues - the big one is the transfer case (read up on it). And of course the airbag recall. Take a look at other recalls in your country's database or do a google search.

There's also a steering column clicking sound.

Really just go through the forum and look at the threads with issues.
