Grovsnus, i am currently neither a hockey dad nor soccer mom. I do however play ice hockey and currently drive an e90 so the trunk space in the X1 should be ample. I also plan to keep the car for 8 years.
djminkin, i totally agree! if they made a sDrive with the 335is engine it would be an awesome balance between performance and utility. When I drove the X5 i could not believe how heavy it felt.
