The X1 20d is the 177HP/130kw, but there is already an updated 20d on the 3-series with 184HP/135kw. This means it might be possible to get the 184Hp from the X1 20d if one would ever want that.

4-1/60 is v26. You should update to any v28/v29/v30 (they're basically the same for MKIV) to get perspective mode, as well as other minor bug fixes.

The mdf and mds are CD images. You should not...

First, as far as I understood, MPG in UK is different from MPG in US.

So 43.5 MPG UK is 36.2 MPG US, and 6.49L/100KM EU.

I doubt that engine, with the weight of the X3, could do less than...
