Nice! That appears to be the exact car that I would order if I was getting an X1.

I know a lot of E46 owners use Leatherique to restore and clean their leather, but you probably don't need that yet. I would just use the stuff they sell at BMW (Lexol I think).

Thanks for all the pics of the interior! I've been aching to get a look at an xLine with the oyster leather inside.

P.S. Great looking car! Congrats!

do it.... ... i figured the extra tint would help protect the leather from the sun and stuff..... don't make it too dark or else it would look ghetto... (Sorry)...plus going below the legal tint number could cause issues later on.... but yeah.. or you can get the lighter one...

Hey Syle I have a Mineral Grey but the M Line. I am about to get my windows tinted at 25%, how do you think black wheels would look with the grey and tinted windows? I have the black grills already in there too.

i am sure it would look great. very masculine choices ... i on the other hand, loved the contrasting colors. As far as the tint...do check with whatever state regulations... i heard that people with illegal tint gets a hard time whenever they do state inspection. If your interior is black, then the window tint will appear more darker..... either way it's gonna look great especially if that is what you want. The important thing is doing and having it exactly how you wanted it.. after all you are driving it and seeing it on a daily basis.... coming out from work, i am always excited to see my carbaby hehehehe..... Good luck!

btw.... that 25% tint.. in the end will give you about hmm... 22-20% plus the dark interior... it would come out even darker.... Go for it if that is what you like.. but keep in mind your state inspection and cops being a kill joy..
