from 325i to X1
By myushko on
2014 BMW X1 sDrive28i 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
I traded in my old (and long out of warranty 2005 325i) for new X1 with premium package.
Note: I got it cheaper than edmunds suggested price, so use it as trading starting point
So far I have 400 miles only and will try to update it later. But for now I am very biased and I like this car. I like driving and this one just pure joy. However my old 325i could turn sharper (X1 center of gravity is higher). Also turbo does not respond as fast as my previous car's 6cil from dead stop. There is a short delay and then turbo delivers massive torque and then traction control has to work hard ;)
On the hiway its pure joy, power is always there when you need it. At 400 mi I got 26+ mpg, no eco-pro
Engine is the best, keyless entry, then BT, then awesome moonroof and ambient lights
I hate bmw as a company, cheap korean cars have rear camera, blind spot monitoring and BT music streaming almost everywhere, bmw wants to rip you of extra for those basic safety features. Their karma should be negative by now..
