First xDrive35i review

Intersting review.

They claim 0-60 was 6.1s yet the xDrive28i is reviewing at 6.4s and the xDrive35i should be near 5.3s so that .8s slower than claimed for the xDrive35i. The note I guess is it's high altitude but I can't imagine .8s slower for that.

Bad tires again? I can only say I could feel the difference in pck up test driving even with the lighter SDrive on the four cylinder.

Edit- just watched, no idea how he achieved the time, probably just stomping on the gas, perhaps he'd do better shifting gears or vice versa. In any case he himself said that he is bigger and heavier then most test drivers he needs to shave some weight off for better times

All-season tires strike again? I hate to think that was his best 0-60 run (or his only).

I watched the video on my iPhone in the X1 via Bluetooth audio for SQ (I'm waiting for my wife to get off of work).

Hearing the sound helps me fondly
remember my N54 335i (torque galore). Perhaps the 6AT really is best mated to the 35i despite how much I love the 8AT with the 28i.

I also wonder if he was just using Drive instead of Drive Sport?

Garage List
It isn't the transmission. Recall that just about every test of the F30 335i has it being slower than the E90 335i largely because of the extra shift the 8s needs to hit 60 mph.

I'd guess this result is a really green car, or just one that doesn't make good power. It's not uncommon for a few motors to be down 10% on power compared to the norm.

0-60 def. affected by the 1-mile high altitude, so 6.1 sec. isn't too terrible. You should see how other cars in their tests are impacted, especially ones without turbos... pretty dramatic differences. Cadillac ATS 3.6 clocked 7.51 to 60 (with both of those goofballs inside), or nearly 1.5-2 sec. off other's tests.

The same two guys just did the Volvo xc60. Expected 0-60 was 6.4 with some tests showing 6.6. At their same altitude it did 6.99, so about half a second off other tests for the xc60. Do some very inaccurate math and a ratio adjustment to the X1's 6.1 and you get about .4s-.6s difference which puts the X1 (projected) at 5.5s-5.7s for 0-60.

Hopefully someone will do a review of the X1 in better 0-60 environments since we don't have any non BMW originated 0-60 numbers yet.

Here's the video:

*spoilder, the guy saying the xc60 will be faster than the X1 rides the scooter home*

I liked Chubby Cheddar's review better. This one has too many artsy camera moves that made me a bit ill. Ironically considering his name Chubby also told fewer fat jokes.

Edmuns.com (used to be insideline.com) tested the 35i x-line:

Seem like the LRR tires really hurting the car. And they hate the seat...
