X1 is simply poor

for sDrive20d

Look and Style: The look is good but the styling is very average   Comfort: Extremely poor. It gives me a lower back pain when a drive stretch exceeds around 100 KM's and very unconfortable for co-passengers too. I get a feeling that the seats are designed for 'discomfort'!!   Pickup; Acceptable   Mileage: Very disappointing in city runs. Also noticing a major variation between on-car fuel guages and actual fuel consumption.   Best Features: Almost nothing excepting the auto-lock facility   Needs to improve: Very hard to drive. Bumpy Indian city roads makes you feel that the car has no shock abosorbers!!   Overall Experience; Disappointing for a aclaimed BMW brand. All my fond expectations have been dashed. The X1 has taught me that 'Expectation reduces Joy'. Strange that BMW uses the caption Joy is what you make of it for the X1 marketing promotions. For me it is anything but Joy!!

TO PUT IT SIMPLY, THERE IS NO NEED FOR YOU TO EXERCISE! DRIVING AND STEERING THE BMW X1 IS JUST LIKE HAVING DUMBBELLS IN YOUR LEFT AND IN YOUR RIGHT HANDS!

    If you hate somebody, advise him to buy BMW X1. Gush! The steering is heavier than a series 1 land rover 1965! I have driven a lot of cars without power steering, the BMW X1 is the heaviest! The maneuverability of the X1 is terrible! Driving it on heavy traffic in a Manila Phillippines is hell, the suspension with arFT tires is like riding in a cart. I think Bmw slept for the last 50 years, when the y wake up , the only improvement that they can think of is RFT tires, now that subaru 2 liter turbo has made a benchmark in performance- 0-100kms in 6.2 seconds at half your price with so much goodies! Better do your homework we'll. for the meantime your x1 is in my garage, I don't know what to do with. In today's standard it is neither a car or a tank!
