New Here - Pictures of my X1

400 miles into my obsession and it's only getting stronger.

FYI - first tank I averaged 23.2 mpg with 70% highway. We will see how the break in affects this number. That was also with pretty timid driving (no rev's over 4k) and part of the tank was with Eco Pro mode activated.

And now onto the pictures. (BTW all were taken with an iPhone5 so they are not the best).

I'm not sure why I really love this picture but it's unedited and the saturation looks amazing in just the natural light. I can't wait for tint to add even more contrast.



Her nose still dripping from a fresh wash.



Another one of my favorites.



Who else love's the panoramic moon roof? :thumbup:



On to some interior shot's highlighting the M-Sportness...





And for those wondering about some of the accessories...

Here is the cargo liner (the $84 one) and well worth it.




The BMW seat back bag. This thing has a TON of pockets and areas to store items. An awesome buy that fits securely behind either front seat.
(You will also notice the all weather floor liners in the next two pictures...also well worth it)



And last but not least, the rear seat middle occupancy storage bag. Just another handy area to store items if the seat is not needed.



That's it for now!

Looks familiar, I have a M Sport w/18" Mineral White S drive. Couldn't tell if yours was S drive but it looks great.

Very nice! I had my heart settled by building a 28i w/M package. Unfortunately I never acquired one, though yours is beautiful. Instead I got a 35i. GL with it!

I had $1500 accessory credit so I picked quite a few out.


The rear cargo liner is great for the price. That is a must have.

All weather floor mats are a reasonable price and keep the interior easy to clean.

I love both of the bags shown in the pictures. They fit perfectly in and around the seats and have a ton of pockets to add some storage capability. I would recommend these.

I also received the iPad holder that looks and works great but it probably over priced compared to generic market brands that do the same thing.

The two sports duffle bags (blue ones) on the bmw accessories site are great lightweight travel bags and the garment bag is a nice size and looks high quality. These are of course not specific to the X1.

I love my M umbrella but again over priced for an umbrella lol.
Same with my t shirts.

The laptop bag is also quite nice.

Thanks for the feedback! I am getting the all weather mats including the trunk liner and also a BMW umbrella haha

How did you get the $1500 accessory credit??

Do the iPad holders have a power source or to you need to plug them into the 12 v jack behind the armrest?

I negotiated for accessories credit when a competing dealer offered me the build at a lower price. My dealer matched with accessories.

The iPad holder does not have a power source. I don't think one is really needed though. Those things last like 8 hours of run time.

I just got my accessories from Circle BMW. Those guys truly have the best prices out there.. and Chris is great to deal with.. I went with the all weather mats, the roof rack with surfboard attachment, sport pedals and an umbrella .. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the trunk all weather liner. It feels a little flimsy.. I was hoping it would be the same material as the other all weather mats.

Headlight washers are part of the Cold Weather Package here...which cannot be combined with the M Sport. The only option from this package that can be combined is heated front seats.

Yes I would also like to see what it shows. Not that I want headlight washers - makes it harder to wash and wax...just curious because I'm pretty sure that is a European thing, same as puddle lights.

Thanks Ex-One! It looks good! Did you get the tint at the dealership? How much did you pay?
