BMW X1, guy or girl???

Very simple poll question

I think the X1 is a guys car?

I think the X1 is a girls car?

My intention is not to start a debate, just to get an opinion.

Personally I think it's just as unisex as any other BMW, (except the new X3, which is too pretty for me...no offense) but I couldn't help notice a lot of these X1's being bought for deserving wives
I think it's a cool car for guys too, especially all sported up!
What are your thoughts?

You should add 28i or 35I as a 35I is defiantly a guys car!

Everyone I've talked to said the X1 is for girls and I shouldn't get one. This pressure is making me reconsider X1...but each time I configure it...it looks so sexy..not girly at all...I'm guessing it really depends on package you get....Sport Package at the very least will make it less girly.

I got the something but...eh, definitely a car I'm not afraid of losing my masculinity with, poll helps assure that, but still sexy for the ladies

I think it is really an unisex car, in my case it will be the wifes car, but without a doubt I will take it far more often than her old car.

Sometimes. But when truth is infront of me I can't deny it. That truth being the X1 is sexy regardless of what people say or think.

Boys are looking at the car...
Girls are looking at the driver (me)...
And I read the same word on their lips: "Wow!!" :-D

To my eyes, the X1 looks more masculine than the X3.

It has something to do with the length of the hood (no implication meant). The X3 looks snubby to me.

Who cares?
I think the X1 looks fairly sporty and kinda rugged.
It's also well suited to middle class young moms.
I bought the X1 as it fits my needs and don't care what others think although I haven't heard anyone say anything girly about it. It has a wide appeal though.

The x1 is an x5 with panties.


(Just kidding.). The x1 makes a great car for a boy or a girl.
