Congrats, btw call the dealer give your VIN# and ask if your vehicle falls under the timing chain/seal recall. Cannot tell what build date you are driving.

The recall issues were mainly with the diesels N47's you I assume have the N20 2 liter turbo, correct? You are in Canada so I assume.

In saying that the N20 itself is quite sketchy tbh, timing chain guide issues and I think cam code's, vac. pump issues leading to recalls on certain build dates from June 2012 on to 2013 I think on just the vac pump issue. I love my bimmers but since 2006 they produce garbage, nice looking and great handling garbage right up until your warrantly is done before you realize this usually.

A simple call to your dealers service and VIN# will let you know if it has a recall on it. Mind you in Canada we get screwed on this stuff so don't be shocked if one day you get a light, lose power or both and get a $5k-$7k bill, no joke, the crap they sell now is disgusting.

Personally would never touch an X1 let alone a used one out of warranty and the cheapest they offered new, jmo.

For used prices you can get a great new/er Hyundai suv or something and have peace of mind for several years. Odds are you don't own that X1 in 5 years.

I am happy for you don't get me wrong just brutally honest as well. I understand paying to play but an X1 is not a toy or luxury car so why are you having to pay, follow me.

Well, Hyundai's quality isn't any better. So many cars are unreliable these days. I hear they're currently having oiling issues causing bearing failures.

That's good to hear, enjoy it without worry then but imo look at it like in 2-4 years you'll be getting a new toy Keeping it beyond that is roulette. And believe me nothing against that particular model, it is just the reality of modern cars, no longer built to last.
