Smile Pics of my x1 msport

Just saying hi to everyone seems like a very good forum to be on. Here's a couple quick pics of my new car. It's replacing an e60 m5 so it's a little weird but I still love the car it's way more practical and still fun.


Also, today while driving I had all the windows and sunroof open while at a red light. Anyone else encounter this issue or have any suggestions. If it happens again I guess il be going back to the dealer.

Congrats!

You weren't sitting on the remote were you?

I thought the remote was a possibility but I tried to do it again but the windows don't open when the car is running with the remote. So I have no idea.
Thanks for the positive comments guys
Also, does anyone know of tire and wheel specs to put 20" wheels on this car. That is what I want to do next but am having trouble finding information

I like the Le Mans Blue - especially in street lights at night.
I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with it. It's not an M car, but it's not a wheelbarrow either. And one of the most FUN cars I've ever driven.

Awesome car!
I wouldn't put larger wheels, the optional 19" M look great!
Keep up the good work!

Love the color.
But good lord, another driver doubled parked. Good way to lure people to key your car.

Nah. It's hard for me to imagine station wagons and SUV's doubled parked
IMHO, not worth the trouble. I'm sure the guy parked in his Toyota Corolla doesn't want a door ding either...

Several years ago when I saw a dude park his new Gallardo in front of a grocery store like any other car, made me realize I should park my plain ole 911 and M3 like everyone else as well

Ha, double parking is absurd, just learn to pick smart spots. End spots, not next to coupes, minivans or Jeeps.

I see minivans do it all the time. Then again...I don't think they do it intentionally.

There's always an ass who parks horribly and too close in every lot. I don't always double park but sometimes in certain areas its required. In the pic for example I was only parked there for 7 minutes and it was in the employee parking section where the lot is pretty empty behind where I was standing. So it really isn't a big deal.

Yeah, no big deal. To each their own. Still, you have a nice car....

On unrelated topic, do you mind if I can ask if you got a decent price?
We're you able to negotiate?

The dealer owed me a favor so they knocked a few grand off. I'm happy with my purchase
