The BMW x1 is a great start but my experience

Just a BMW x1 and car started to heay up and need. Like the color but if you get it from a car lot they will not tell you what you be fixed or what was the problem before and to them it's just to sell the car

Very good, with a couple of caveats

2020 X1 w/sport seats and convenience package, purchased in 2023. Positive notes: It's a true BMW: sure-footed, agile, and no shortage of power when needed. It feels remarkably glued to the road despite its small size. Handles as well as my former 3 series and is just as fun to drive. Storage space is good. Ergonomics are good once you figure out all the technology. Negatives: Ride is a bit bumpy, even for a sporty car, which is apparently caused by the run-flat tires. If I was buying new, I'd get standard tires and a real spare, which fits in the storage space in the back. Sensatec seats are hot. In retrospect, I'd hold out for leather. Overall, I recommend this car if you're looking for something small, practical, full-featured and sporty.

Drives and Feels Premium

Smallest SUV in the range and it still drives confidently. Plenty of power and torque from the turbo 4-cylinder. A very refined ride. Interior appointments remind you that you’ve bought a quality car.

New Owner of BMWX1

Its too soon to know about reliability but the performance is outstanding. It maneuvers beautifully in city traffic as well as interstate driving. It is quiet and feels put together well.

Gebhardt is like family!

Great car and experience. Nice to do business with a family run business who have been around for a long time in Boulder. Will be back!

My first BMW

I think I will trade it in for another one and upgrade. Rides very smoothly. I love my road trips now. I use it for business.

Great Small SUV

I love this car, was perfect for me. Had more options in it than I needed or expected to get. I'm satisfied overall with my purchase.

I like my car power and style

This car meets all of my need, enough power good fuel economy. Little noisier as I like ( I find after drive X3 loan car), short beam is excellent, but long beam in the sky. Some feature is not as good as 2013 X1, bottle holder in the door much worse, bottle fold down. Less power than 2013, both models are xdrive 28i. I enjoy the heads up display, readable in any weather condition. Heated stearing wheel and seat very useful in the winter.
