Sorry, glitch had them in the Base X1 category, but not in the E84 Section.

I've fixed it, take a look now

Unfortunately we aren't mobile optimized at the moment

Are you able to see anything on the site? I checked with my ipad and it doesn't look the best but I can still see the overall layout.

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it!

I can see it and it looks ok, but when I try to click on 'BMW' 'BMW/m' or 'mini' nothing happens. I can click on 'about us'. I would like to see the X1 parts but can't find them.

Thank you for letting us know. I'm going to see what we can do about getting the menus optimized for iPad. The tricky thing is that the site uses a fair bit of Javascript and iPad's tend not to like it that much.

In the mean time, take a look at the site on your desktop or laptop and you'll be able to see the site the way it should look

Me too! Let me know what you want to see for the X1 and we'll get it put up on the site. Since you guys are a "relatively" new market, we need your help in getting the products you want!

You might be onto something there!

The thing about the X1 is that a lot of parts from the 135 fit on it, but websites don't have compatibility listings so it appears that there are no parts available.

For example, we've confirmed that intakes, tunes, downpipes, and chargepipes made for the 135 N55 engine fit on the X1 35i.

The exhausts of the 135i and x1 35i look 99% the same, but nobody has tried fitting one yet.

The 335 and X1 35i brakes are identical, so all BBK fits should theoretically fit on the X1.

You're likely losing of sales on parts that already fit just because nobody has done compatibility testing yet. IF you can find an X1 and confirm fitment on these already existing parts, you already likely have a lot of them in stock.

And of course, the other part of it is that once more people become aware of the performance potential of the X1, it will drive some enthusiast sales - which will in turn drive parts sales. Not many people realize the X1 is relatively easy to get into the 12's.

I hear what you are saying, and I agree that some parts will definitely be interchangeable.

However

We have to be careful selling parts designed for a 135i for example, to a customer with an X1 35i. Aftermarket part warranties may not cover the part if installed in a vehicle that it is not tested for. Also, you have to take into account that for Big Brake kits, while the fitment may be the same, the braking bias/balance may not be.

Its not going to be too long before companies realize the potential of the X1 and start pushing parts for it. We just like to make sure our customers are covered and would rather be a little slower than to risk someones baby!
