39. After years of driving sports cars even as daily drivers I decided to buy something more practical and sensible for my lifestyle (I drive a lot of miles and can live in different places and also hotels at times). Also want to do more outdoor hobbies and the X1 gives me the space, much more than my previous Z4 M Coupe did
. I can see me keeping the X1 long term but possibly picking up another toy in the future but only as a second car.
Also wanted to bring my motoring costs down. 48MPG is nearly double I was getting in my previous car and servicing costs will be a fraction of my previous costs, in fact free for me for the next 5/6 years or 60,000 miles as BMW threw in a servicing pack.
