2015 BMW X1 sDrive20i

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Was looking around to find a thread for the new BMW X1 but couldn't find one.

Any bros driving or have drove the new X1 before care to share?

 

Old Car COE almost up, looking at Passat, 3series, C-Class and X1.

3 series and C Class rear space maybe a bit small so considering X1 which seems like a very nice car!

that's standard operation from pml

first batch of new model ... sibei bare bone option

after 1.5 year ... specs would be better

when LCI is coming ... the current model will be fully spec with msport [thumbsup]

The best year to buy BMW is the final year of production.

 

Same OMV with the most option throw in.

 

Looking at the OMV, the option is quite decent.

Whilst I do note PML standard op is like what you mentioned, the 216GT was the opposite as they provided almost full specs when launched which was an attraction for many buyers. 

 

In fact it was like $16k difference from the AT business version and normally business v Luxury is around $10k difference in itself and that's why I believe the GT sold well.

Nice car for those not interested in whatever RWD/handling/etc etc... ( = majority of car buyers)

pretty good space inside and nicely packaged overall imo. i thinl will be a good daily driver, not too big for parking too.

Hahahaha i thought the spec that PML brought in was quite okay?

 

The only thing i would change is the infotainment screen. They only give 6inch..

 

Got automatic tailgate and extra interior lights

In the context of local city/highway driving, what are the benefits in terms of the handling for light to moderate driving?

Yeah, it is already 2016. How low spec can cars be now? The competition is fierce and many options are now becoming standard to attract and retain buyers. Of course there are the premium options like adaptive dampening and 360 views etc. But then I'm not expecting those in this model range.

 

To me, the basic must haves are: comfort access, electric seats, bluetooth handsfree, reverse camera and parking sensors, folding side mirrors, and maybe cruise control and auto tailgate.

 

So the new x1 is missing some of the items in my list?

I think all the functions you listed all have. Maybe except for cruise control. Not sure have or not.

 

From all the reviews that i see, they seem to suggest that the ride is very crashy and uncomfortable. Any x1-ers here?

Those adaptive deepening is 1000 for a pair at stocklist. Haaa. I will settle for normal dampers.

Now i know why you all say low spec. 

What about the 318i? Also considered low spec? They also use the small iDrive. :(

Ride is ok.  Can't really differentiate diff between FWD and RWD so FWD is ok for me. second row seats form is on the hard firm side though so not as comfortable for passenger vs my current ride.

Wah. If you guys expect the premium options in a entry level car, of course CMI lah. Maybe for the next gen x1? :)

 

Anyway, call me old school, but I prefer the basic electro-mechanical dials + some lcd info. The pure digital screens looks too much like video games. And I know that just like the high cc 6, 8, 10 ,12 cylinder NA cars, it will be obsolete soon. So better get the old school dials while they last. :)
