My X1 is Sport Line, exterior color: glacier silver and interior color: coral red. By default, Sport Line comes with all-season tires. I live in Bay Area (NorCal), rain in winter and no snow. But, I occasionally travel to the snow area for skiing. After seeing my car, all three co-workers like the coral red color and black paint on the side skirts and front & rear bump in Sport Line. In first day drive, one of things I like most is the hydraulic steering. The feel of heavy steering is so good. On the highway, it feels like the car can drive itself on rails. Thanks to the posts of this forum, I made a right decision of ordering a xDrive28i without servotronic.
