X1 on TV

Some of you may knowthe German TV show "Alarm fur Cobra 11", where two highway cops (plainclothes that is !) chase bad guys all episode-long, which is a pretext for quite astounding stunts (mainly with... cars).

BMW has been providing a 3Series for the two main characters for most of the 12 or 13 seasons. It's a silver grey one with dual DashLed, and it evolves as new versions are coming out..

I just came across a late episode while in Milan (Italy has a huge fan club !) and realized that to replace the latest silver E90 (same since 2007 I believe), the 2010 season had the heroes driving a ...

Marrakesh Brown X1 !!!

Nice, one observation..

despite the very rough and dirty looking clothes, our hero's crime busting X1 is super clean in every shot.

I think it gives the X1 some much needed street cred. It's a relatively rare sight on the road compared to other BMWs.

True enough.
It's my understanding that this show has been a showcase for BMW products pretty much since its inception. The two main characters have always been driving a 3 Series, silver in color, and they went from one generation to the next as the model evolved.

I suppose they will be soon driving the 2012 MY or even the GT !!
