Congrats!!!
Thanks!

There's another LeMans blue M Sport for sale at a dealer down in SC, but slightly higher mileage and fewer options....

I can dig up the listing if you're interested.

If I'm looking at the pictures correctly - this one has less than 8K miles on it.

Don't know what they want for it, though.

Late to this thread but also just picked up a 2015 3.5 last week from a private party in GA. Drove it from Charlotte to Maine in 12 hours, ~1,200 miles total.

it had 25K miles with virtually every option including 19 inch rims which I though would be harsh but they are not. Averaged exactly 70 MPH and 24MPG which I thought was pretty reasonable given how fast your really have to go to avg 70.. It was a BMW executive lease then private party. It was CPO, so I get to extend that for $200, runs out next Nov as car was in service Nov 14.

Car must be wondering WTH as it now has snow tires and it sitting in 4 inches of new fluff which it never has seen before! Looking forward to figuring it all out. It only came with one manual whereas my 07 X3 had like 5. Is that all there is or am I missing a manual or two?
thx
Mike

Need to get a wash and fill up today. I'm back in DC for work starting Monday but I'll get with the local dealer to get a service history soon.

Gotta get rid of that stupid front plate bracket ASAP.

1200 miles in 12 hours, with 70 mph average? That doesn't sound even close to plausible if you reset the computer at start. I average 77 MPH going to DC and back (~760 miles) without nearly hitting the speed you'd need to do 1200 miles in 12 hours. That still takes me 10.5 hours average with stops for gas.

If you didn't reset the computer, then I can believe that figure.

I think my 35i had 2 manuals with it, I can check tonight.

Sorry for my lack of clarity. The whole trip GA to ME was a bit over 1,200 miles and averaged exactly 70MPH according to the trip computer. It was only Charlotte to ME that took 12-13 hours driving/seat time travelling much faster than 70.
That said, as much of an improvement as the 2015 X1 is over the 07 X3, I miss having the trip 1 and trip 2 options of the older car and the ability to rest a partial trip instead of the whole trip.

That makes more sense. I normally get 24-26 MPG on long trips. This past trip, I was hauling faster than usual without any windbreakers cars most of the trip so I only got about 23 - I was disappointed a little bit, but I wanted AWD of my X1 vs the RWD of my 328. I'm glad I had it though, I had a good bit of snow/slush to travel through on I95. Instead of fish tailing I just plowed through the snow changing lanes.
