Handling is surprisingly good but not as crisp as the 1er, but again, this has more to do with tires and xDrive. The suspension itself is much better sorted, the E82 was a mess from the factory, way too much dive and squat and nearly no small impact suppression.
Yeah, that's my point. e9x xDrive sports have the stock suspension with higher ride height. Looks like you went to an xLine which doesn't have the M-sport suspension. I would expect a non-sports X1 to handle worse than a non-sports 135 or 335. But I'm specifically wondering if anyone compared the sports-suspension on a X1 (Msport) to a e9x xDrive.
