X1 Power Ride

Just wondering if anyone in the US has had the courage to order this new special edition.

$44K+ seems a lot of money for what is effectively a cosmetic make over, although you do appear to get 1/2 leather interior.

Ripoff.. plus you'd have to pay someone to properly remove the horrendous decal. I definitely like the new roof rack structure and the interior controls. But it isn't worth it. If it shipped with a free set of OEM wheels on runflat winters.. now that's getting a little more interesting and practical. Hilariously, there's no mention of this.

I would think that, for the purpose this vehicle is designed, leatherette would probably be a more durable choice.

Can't get it with M sport suspension and tuning, so no, not really interested.
I don't think the decals are that bad on the white. On the rest, it's horrible.
Give me the Jeff Koons decals, and I'd consider it
