In my opinion it's a colour combination that works quite well because it lightens the interior.

The Brushed Aluminium trim also compliments the Aluminium colours on the exterior (inc wheels) by linking the exterior with the interior.

I've used the same colour combination on an Audi TT and Porsche in the past. The BMW red is more brown than red, and had the option been avalable I would probably have chosen a darker chocolate brown instead
I've got red brown also, and I love it. Think the brown element of it really sets it off.

I've had red in my last 2 BMW's (Z4MC and 120d M sport coupe) - the Z4MC was like a lipstick red although not as harsh as it sounds, and the 120 was a lighter red - but the red brown is my favourite of the three.

It really contrasts well with the car interior doesn't it.

Kumiorava,

How is the beige interior handling? Does it dirty quickly? What about dark colours rubbing onto it? It looks very nice though!!

Any feedback? Thanks,

Konstantinos

Delay

Just been told by my dealer that car will now be built in Dec for Jan delivery, guess they where trying to get a Dec delivery date for their sales figures in Dec.

Ordered the car in Sep so quite a big build delay at factory..

I am still waiting for my X1 so will only be able to tell you how mine fits in about 8 weeks time. However my current Garmin is quite compact and should easily fit. I am not sure however how you would fix the holder as mine has a simple suction cup and of course there is no power there. In my Golf and Mini I just leave it on the dash and follow the voice instruction.

I would like to add though that there is a BMW after market SatNav that is actually fitted inside that centre console bin. It is also removable as far as I know and is also powered from there. From the pictures in the BMW brochure it also looks as if they replace the console "insert" with a SatNav spesific one. It does seem as if it loses the lid though. Unfortunately I don't have the accessories brochure with me at the moment but if you are interested I can get you the part number and you can ask your dealer.

Some of the forum members here may ask why not just put in the SatNav option to start with? In the UK the basic built-in SatNav is around 1500, the one I mention above is 499 plus fitting from BMW.

Update: I have looked in the accessories brochure but there is no part number. For the X1 they list two that can be built in, the BMW Integrated Portable Navigation System Pro (499) which also has built in power and the BMW Integrated Portable Navigation System Plus (399) for which I have no further info. There is another non-model spesific portable one (179) but it looks like a BMW branded Garmin at twice the price.
Hi All. I have the BMW Portable Pro fitted, and it's fine - really a BMW branded Garmin. Powers up with ignition etc though the fitters couldn't get the audio over the car's speakers. I've seen a few aftermarket iDrive style nav units that look like really good, though they're from China (running Windows CE 6.0) and I don't know how well they'll work in the UK or what the quality is like. Anyone had any experience? I can upload pics of my Portable Pro (with bespoke fitting) if anyone's interested.

Find a dealer who knows what they are doing as the audio does work through the car's speakers (attenuating whatever music is playing). This is the main reason to spend the extra money on the BMW portable versions. Check the 1-series forums for more details.
