Picked up my new X1 Sdrive28i MSport on my birthday! (just dumb luck that it showed up my birthday as it was ordered weeks ago....)
* Options/Specs *
19 inch wheel upgrade (came with PZeros)
Harman Kardon Audio
Yes, paddle shifters
(no tech/nav stuff....not much of a fan)
* Thoughts *
Steering is better than expected....good feel
19 inch rims/sport suspension actually feels pretty good on the road of Arizona....more "compliant" than our 135 MSport Convertible for sure
Auto Start/Stop system is annoying for sure....
Shocked by how big/useful cargo area is. Carried home a new 60 inch TV from Costco yesterday without a problem
19 inch wheels look awesome but are going to be a b#tch to clean
Black grille looks awesome as well with the alpine white paint
Car is quick, though not as quick as our 135i, but doesn't feel at all like a suv/cross-over. More like a "big 1" or a "tall 3 series"
Car feels solidly built, and honestly think its the bargain in the BMW line when compared to the specs of say a loaded 3 series
I'll try to load some pics here soon....but turned out much better than expected, and even the dealership thought it was one of the nicer looking cars they have received (and oddly only two or three MSports delivered thus far)

I didn't go for the 19" rims on my M Sport because they looked like the ones on a previous M3 I owned which was a bitch to keep clean. The good news is that with the ceramic break pads you find that the wheel keep amazingly clean from brake dust.

Interested in feedback on suspension compliance
I really liked the looks/handling of the 19" wheel/tire combo but couldn't find any all season tires to fit them for my occasional trips into the mountains and snow. Starting with orders this month the M Sport Line X1 with 18" wheels comes with all-season tires, so I would be set for light snow/winter driving.
