Arrow The Official E84 X1 Off-Road/4x4 Thread

It seems not many use the X1 off-road (at least not here in the States), so I thought this could be a fun thread, and a little different from the other threads in this section.

Snow, sand, mud, or dirt - it doesn't matter, as long as the X1 is off the pavement. Your own X1, something you found on the forum, or something you came across searching the web - if it's an X1 and all four wheels are touching dirt/rocks/sand/ice/snow/mud/water/etc., it belongs in this thread. If you've got any stories with your X1 off-road, this is the place to share.

I'll load this first post with images from the web, let's see what else we can come up with!

LOL, yep! That's me. Funny you noticed, there's another ex-RX8 owner on ZPost who said the same thing in my build-thread. Small world! Didn't run into any rx8club members for my 3 years on F30post, though.

You end up getting rid of the X1? Whatcha driving now?

I have an FRS now. Loved the X1, but I got new job and was putting WAY too many miles on it. (was a lease)

Minus 1 wheels/ Plus 1 tires

Hello all,

Thought I might add a photo of my X1 sitting on 17" wheels (Kosei KR8's) with slightly taller (225/55-17 Goodyear F1 Asymmetric A/S) tires after I pulled the stock 18's. While not any sort of an off road type tire, or wheel for that matter, this setup fits very nicely in the wheel well with no rubbing issues. One might be able to go a bit larger in tire size actually...Name:  023BMW 5.jpg

Thanks for sharing this! BTW, the car looks fantastic with the setup!

So funny....I had an FRS then got the X1 lol

It was fun while it lasted, but I got bored quickly.

I've got a bunch other photos of misc off-road adventures to upload, but this is the only one uploaded for now.



Quite excited as I'll be fitting some true All-Terrain tires + a modest lift in the near future and heading out to the desert to see what kind of trouble I can get in

Not quite off road, but this is the result. Played in some mud after a recent rain
