In other words, an awd X1 is not nearly the same thing as an awd X3.
Had a chance to drive the X1 xDrive as a loaner car and noticed the front tires pressure was higher than the rear ones (thru iDrive screen), meaning it is almost always FWD.
Yeah, we had an E84 35i and test drove the new X1, absolutely no comparison between dynamics of the two. Bought an F30 LCI but won’t be buying another BMW unless I convince the spouse to get an M2 CS.
