New owner - Bronze

I picked up my 2013 X1 today. It is bronze with tan interior. I drove it home, put it in the garage, and went for a mountain bike ride. I should get to drive it tomorrow.

I wanted the black interior but couldn't find a bronze one with black and didn't want to order it.

This is my first BMW and replaces my 2003 Saab 9-3 which I bought new and put 196,000 miles on it. I had planned to keep it until 200k but it was having some mechanical issues and I didn't want to fix it. Hopefully this will last 200k miles which is what I have put on my last two cars, and my wife put 220k on her last car.

I plan to put metal pedals on it, a trailer hitch, roof rack, tint, and hope to change the wheels out. Other than that, it will probably stay stock.

I was leaning Bronze before I found out you couldn't get it with M Sport.

Plenty of pics over in X1 Photos / Videos / Media

You've linked the wrong threads. I've seen the color threads but only a few in this color and half are processed. Thanks anyway.

196,000 miles in one year? That's quite amazing.

I am a traveling salesman and drive a lot. Or I entered 2013 instead of 2003 which is what the car title says.

Post some pics, please. Preferably before you install the trailer hitch.
