Hi kapetajr,
I have alpine White with 18x7.5"F/9"R with 225/255. Looking at 235/265 Combo later, which is i believe the Max. for my Wheel Widths. Not lowered yet, BC Coilover's cost around AUD$2,000 installed. Painted the Front and Back Silver Sections Black also.

Like the look of those Wheels and your Tire selection.
Is there any rubbing with those 245's on the Front.
What size are your Wheels.
Are you going to Lower it.
Cheers

Hi Gtony.

No rubbing so far (I drive about 200kms per day). It will be lowered on H&R springs , give me about 2 - 3 weeks to get the springs in. I will let you know if it rubs then.

edit: another user on a forum let me know that the fronts will rub on BIG bumps. His car is Lowered on kw's.

Sadly...

This was the picture of our 2014 X1, right before it went into involuntary retirement... Although the car was under warrantee, neither BMW USA nor the dealer (who serviced the car) seems inclined to think that they are responsible.

Wish we knew. At the moment, we have absolutely no clue, and it is likely that we will need to hire our own engineers (for $2k) to do an "origin and cause" report and incur even more damage.

We had our normal service (an oil change) at the end of August; and at the start of September, the "check engine" light went on. We took the X1 back into the dealer + they replaced the thermostat. Everything was running fine and there was nothing out of the ordinary. Nine days after the engine service, there was a "kerthunk” from under the hood. My spouse pulled to the side of the road, saw oil gushing onto the road from the car, and then the flames. I'll separately attach some photos to give you a sense of what's under the hood (and the prompt and thorough response of the fire department and the state police).

We have never heard of a BMW this new -- and still under the original powertrain warrantee -- catching fire. We are wondering if other people have had this experience. We are also wondering if other people have had any experience or problems with the 2014 X1 thermostat, as when going through our papers this morning, I found a notice from July 2017 about an extended warrantee on the thermostat.

We’ve been saddened by the response. At BMW USA, the official claims dealer fluctuated between indifferent and hostile and left the impression that they were not going to stand behind their product + they were going to require us to incur the expenses to prove they were expressly liable for the fire. They also refused to discuss the warrantee. I was disturbed that this is the way that loyal customers were dealt with. We've been a 2-BMW car family for years...

I still have my 2011 328xi that I bought ED (with the help of this forum) -- even though it currently makes me feel sick when I get into the car and think about how my spouse could have died or been seriously burned. I welcome all ideas about how to restore our faith in the brand or learning about the experience of others.

Wow!
That is crazy.

It sounds like it was a short time from when you had the service to the fire. (a week or two?)
Did you ever pop the hood to peek inside since you had the service?
Makes me think something was left in there(bottle of oil?), or the service was done incorrectly some how to cause an issue.

Does your insurance cover anything?

Correct on timing. The timetable was: the fire occurred 9 days after the service. We didn't peek inside the hood, as we didn't see the need to do so. Up until the time of the "kerthunk" coming from the engine that made my spouse pull over and the fire that erupted a few minutes later, everything was running as per normal.

The insurance can't and doesn't cover all the damages that relate to both the fire and having to replace the car. So we are going to be seriously out of pocket. And if we have to spend $2000 to get an origin report just to have BMW believe that we aren't at fault, it's going to add up. Fast.

Took a break on a great drive yesterday to snap these of my 2015 xDrive 2.8. It came with black mirrors and accents so I changes the grill to all black.
