Great X1 review ... but ?



I was saying to myself viewing this video : That's exactly how I feel about My X1 !!! Wow ... Someone has got it right finally ... until I realized that the guy was some kind of BMW dealer salesperson

He got me right for sure

I Liked the part about 4:40 "This car is built with excellence" when he hits a bump hard and then he goes on to say how well it rides...

After listening to this sales guy I need an X1 because he claims:
Easily accommodates 5 adults
BMW under estimates MPG by 2-3 MPG, his computer says he's getting 34mpg so he thinks his real MPG is about 38mpg on his X1.
Very nicely equipped for mid 30's.
Vehicle without compromise.
X1 isn't a pretender (whatever that means)
It will do anything you need!

And the best line of all, "Become one, with the X1"

I vote this video for a web funnies award.

Well, it does. The three pygmies better sit in the back, though.

There are laws against that in Utah.

I think here in Quebec we got 2 years in jail for that kind of "fusion"

yeah, i actually ran into that same guy at a Charleston dealership, our X5//M went KupŁt! (minor repair, luckily) the guy seems like like a tryhard salesman, he would admit no flaws, the 7 series and the X1 were both just as good! (? wtf?)

Agree - did you notice that at 0:22 his computer shows average 11.9 MPG?

Funny part of the video is in the start itself, where he starts the engine and revvs it up, not supposed to be done in a turbo cold start.
