So far what I like most in the vehicle is the Harman Kardon sound system ( after I played around with equalisation is perfect ) and the passing quickness of the vehicle ( 50 to 70 like in a second...wow! ).

Looks great... Almost as sweet looking at mine but I am bias... I wanted to get the Blue with the Red leather interior but my fiance convinced me to get the grey instead as it would not look like Superman...

buttdyno says gains from just a CAI? Must be some design.

EDIT: While that sounded snoody, it wasn't meant to be haha. I am interested if it was truly noticeable from a driver's standpoint.

Thanks...I noticed more pull after 2nd gear and the turbo spool sound can be heard louder.

Interesting. I hadn't thought about leaving the rear window alone. Can you post a pic from the rear?

A Week After

It has been a week of driving my New BMW X1 35i "M", Love it each day even more...no mayor issues except for this, is there any way of stopping this from showing up every time I turn car on?, it goes away quick but I get to see it everytime engine is turned on...

It takes about 10 seconds for the iDrive to boot up whether you click or not. I haven't figured out how to stop it from showing up but it will disappear if you click on Radio or Media.

Yes...I'm already getting used to it, I just wait for it to go off or press select on center controller.

Tire preassure.

Don't forget to check Tire preassure within the first 300 miles of your vehicle, mine had over 50 psi on front tires and around 60 psi on rear, these have to be lower to around 35 psi on front and 38 on rear....look at tire information sticker on driver side panel.

For transferring files to the hard drive. It's in the manual, I believe.
