Thumbs up My 2013 X1 x28i Midnight Blue Metallic - First Photos

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Greetings,

I picked up my 2013 X1 on Friday 8/10/2012 here in Michigan. I meant to post some photos right after picking it up, but I spent more time driving the car than I thought I would.

The car had a built date of 7/11 and just got to the dealer on Friday afternoon. I was able to pick it up that evening.

Here are the options I picked:
X1 xDrive 28i
Midnight Blue Metallic
Leather "Nevada" Black/Leather Piping Grey-Brown
xLine
18" wheels that come with xLine
Fineline Bay Matte Wood Trim
Cold Weather Package
Ultimate Package (Premium, Technology, Navigation, and Driver Assistance Packages included)
Lighting Package
Chrome-line exterior trim
Roof rails in Aluminum Satin
Servotronic
Sports leather steering wheel with paddle shifters
Satellite Radio
Harman Kardon surround sound system
BMW Apps

I wanted to take some better quality photos but haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll be happy to post more later.
Also, this car is awesome! I love the handling, the design, the sound, and the "feel" of the car in general. I have no complaints whatsoever at this point. I picked it up with 5 miles on it, and now it's up to 364.
I might take a little road trip over the weekend, that's why I decided to post some photos now instead of letting another few days pass by. This forum has been very helpful in making the wait for the X1a little more bearable, thank you!
When I ordered the car, the online configurator wasn't up yet and I was a little bit worried about how it would all turn out. But it turned out great, I love the car and everything about it!

Here are a few photos:

I LOVE the picture of the xenon lights. Wow cool!

If you have time, I would love to see a picture of what the gas cap looks like. Does it have a simple screw off cap?

Thanks for the pictures. Midnight Blue metallic looks so much different in real life as compared to the configurator. Looks awesome!

Very nice, close to what i am looking at putting together.. Does it have the 3 different driving dynamics like the 3 series has where you can change between Sport, Comfort, and Eco Pro? Or is it just Eco Pro and Comfort?

Does anyone know if the sport line and/or m-sport line x1 has it as well?

Great steering wheel with the paddle shifters. 120.00 option and worth it. How about some reviews on the engine/8 speed auto, up shifting and down shifting. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the pics! Either the bmwusa configurator is waaaaaay off on color, or you got deep sea blue. I'm confused. Whatever color you have though is very very nice!

The Inner Angel eye now sticks outside the lightbulb assembly!! It's different from the pre-LCI models!

This doesn't make me think of a Forester at all. This X1 is one attractive ride.

IMO this is better looking than an x3. Can you take pics of it next to its competitors and other BMW's.

That's awesome, I wonder when my dealer will be getting one in... This is most likely going to replace my e90 in the near future. Can you post your current mpg figures? I drive 120 miles a day

I really like that matte finish wood trim. I may have to look into that when I order mine in the spring.

Love Erhard... spent many an evening after school with my face pressed against the glass there as a younger kid before moving West. My parents go there once every three years to lease my mom a new car. Good dealership, great service. Congrats on the new ride.
