Yet Another Black X1... Mine!

Couldn't resist sharing with you... My X1 has finally arrived!

Ahead of schedule, as I expected after reading the comments from several people saying the production was speed up considerably. It was first scheduled to arrive only in June... but it's in the dealer's garage right now!

Now... for the bad news... (oh yes, there are some of those as well...)

Thanks to the Pope's visit to Portugal, and lots of people "not working", the license plates paperwork is delayed... and as such I'll have to wait until next Monday to get the car.

Guess it will be the longest days of my life... But at least it's here!

Will post some pics as soon as I *actually* get it!

Congrats Hope you two will get along well. Nowadays, my baby is bothering me with the noises coming from front door covers and air jets.

Also, we want photos!

Black, black... and black. Not much of a contrasting kind of guy!
(I do love the look of white/light leather on a black car... but not for everyday use for me.

As for the options, that's a long list (3 pages worth of BMW specs description.)
As for the most relevant ones: black leather, sport seats, panoramic roof, parking sensors+rear camera, GPS navigation+bluetooth+etc, 18" wheels (323), 8 Speaker HiFi sound system, keyless comfort access, lighting pack, storage pack, xenon lights, cruise control, and lots other "small stuff"...

(Also, some of the stuff come already as standard in here: auto AC, light/rain sensors, etc.)

It's a x23d, only noticeable by the front silver grill.

Yes, X-line pack and black rails (the silver ones would mean extra delay.)

I've got the same curtains for my E90 too. I intend to get these curtains for my X1 as well, how much did you get that for?

BTW, great colour combo! always love the black. But for the X1, I am more adventurous and opted for the brown colour.

As I said in another thread, the regular price is insane, nearly 500.
They offered a nice discount, and I got it for about 350... (that's still expensive, considering they're just "clip-on" curtains and not roll-on - but as the sun is getting hotter with Summer approaching... I went for it.)

Now I'm still considering if I'll tint the windows or not... it will be another 500 or so...

And just to show not everything is perfect in the X1, there are some "inadmissable" cheap plastics all over the cockpit. Can't imagine why BMW has done so, but... here it is:



It's a pity... those details would have made the X1 even better (not that I'm complaining... the way the car handles makes us forget about this stuff but... maybe something BMW should consider this kind of stuff in the future.)

Looks like someone needs window tints

Congrats, it looks gorgeous with all the extras

Do you have the anthracite headlining, its a bit hard to see because of the sunlight.

Yes, I have the anthracite headlining as well. I think its better seen in the video:


As for the window tints... Can you post some close up photos on how it looks on the micro dot pattern on the rear windows for example?
I've seen some cars were there is no noticeable difference, while others seem to have a sort of "clear margin" in those areas.

They did that in the first couple years of the X3. We had a 2005 X3 and the plastics were decidedly inferior to the ones on our 2008 X3. I suspect that the X1 will get better materials in later model years.

Yes, I was supposed to put some close up photos for you. Sorry I totally forgot that. I'm charging the camera now, I'll put some photos asap.

I tried some macro shots but the photos are as bad as can be. The windows is reflecting so much, its hard to see the dot pattern but here are two photos. It was also raining so I was not able to many shots, but I'll figure some way out whenever the weather is ok.
