Now I like the 335i, but its a bit too refined for my day to day operations. Is the x1 a better version of the tiguan or should i look elsewhere?
Went from a Touareg to an X1 and I have no regrets...except of course off Road ability...which the X1 isn't too bad at so far, I do agree the BMW is a bit delicate and I'm a rough kinda guy, but in exchange for a sporty, comfortable, advance car you sacrifice brute force, but to me that's jumping curbs, driving in ruts, mud and deep water...which most don't do, as long as I can throw my huge suitcase, my snowboard or music equipment in the back and take off (which I can) I'm good, you should be fine. Very sufficient for small families and couples and outdoorsy people's and btw any other car including the tiguan most peeps avoid scratching n such so...
Those are my thoughts
