wife's new ride: 2017 X1, xdrive

Grey, oyster pleather interior, heated seats pany sunroof, etc. Supposedly with the optional spare and dealer to swap out [or did .....] RFTs for regular tires. She chose a lease package.

I haven't driven it yet, but she likes it. BTW, she was diverted from the I-85 feeder road Thursday night rush hour shortly before the section collapsed that made all the news ......

Congrats Riddogdeaux,
You gotta drive it and give me your review!

Good deal on lease?

My CEO is Jonesing for a new car this early summer, and she has the X1 on her short list. probably leasing.
Thanks,
GL, mD

Is there such a thing as a 'good' lease? I doubt it, but can share the details with you via private message once I've had time to review them. Do look for the 'x-drive' version; many on the lots are the 's,' yer basic front wheel drive, transverse mounted turbo 4. Personally, I would insist on the dealer substituting out the run flat tires and adding the spare. I pitched the reasons to the dealer rep and my wife; I don't know whether that came to pass. Ii'll pm you later with my driving impressions and loan details.

By the way, love your pix of the southwestern road trip via 'vette. I still hope to make it to the Utah parks and Monument Valley, when time permits!

Riggodeaux, Thank you for the kudos...we did similar trips 5 or 6 times on our old Goldwing, but honking in the VetteVert over nearly the same route(s) was easier/better in many ways.

I would climb in and go again this summer, but maybe in a new C7 vs our 15 yr old C5. Nothing beats being out on the road for few months carving 2 lanes and seeing stuff...

I wasn't being nosy on your lease, just curious, as while I had Company Cars, (leased), for 2 1/2 decades when I carried the bag, I have actually never leased a car. We have bought our last 4 cars with cash, but I think a lease might be better for my CEO: she doesn't do but <10k miles a year, she can dump it in 3 or 4 and never have to 'worry' about an older car, etc.

I've been trying to bone up/get smarter on leasing but it's like Quantum Theory with all of the anecdotal stuff and 'deals' out there.

As for RFTs, I don't think I would care: it's her car, that I would drive on rare occasions, but worth keeping in mind.

Not an XDrive fan or AWD fan for her next car: we simply don't need AWD as we depart our Mtn Home before any serious snow and return when it's Spring. If we were still living there full time as we did, I would be more enthused about AWD. Not a huge fan/convinced about that Turbo 4 in the FWD version, (we had similar engine in 2 week traverse Iceland Trip and it was OK, but just OK), but curious to see the cost diff vs the bigger engine X Drive...

Look forward to hearing your initial review of car and any leasing tips would be appreciated!

Jeezzz, there are a lot of brands with models that fall in that size SUV category, in the Mkt these days.
BR, mD

I'm happy to share with you lease issues [via private mail]. Crashing used car prices, which 'coming off lease' feeds, is having an effect on dealers offering deals. There was a WSJ article on the subject a couple of weeks ago.

Note that the X1 only comes with the turbo I4 gas drinker here in the states. I'm not a fan, generally, of FWD, and regret that BMW has gone down that path - but that's where the market lies for this kind of vehicle. I did like the ergonomics of the X1, certainly worth checking out in that market space, and your CEO's usage certainly points to a low mileage lease. Ping me in a couple of weeks and I'll get a private message with my impressions and lease detail.

BTW, I looked last night and the Boss's new X1 has Goodyear Eagle all-weather run-flats ['made in Germany'].

^ Not surprised...the swap out for non-RFTs seemed like a wish.
That, and even though it's a lease, I would not want the low on the list 'tech' banging on the brand new rims doing a tire swap, and the possible/likely less than stellar new balancing job.

Tell your CEO she doesn't have to worry about changing a tire on road side, now.
GL, mD
