Congrats Suman, overJOY'd finally :-)

Also, what was the final deal offered to you on the 320d ?

Congrats Suman Sir, so you are finally upgrading to something that I always thought you should have, with the kinda budget you had...

I know it took a bit too long but finally its a BMW..right! As I said sometime earlier, with your kinda budget, fiesta, cedia, or even civic/altis are not to be seen around. I am glad that you decided on X1..will wait for one of the best initial/long term ownership report as always. Afterall thats what inspires us pre-owned lovers to decide on the right upgrade (german, if at all..lolz)

take care..

Sorry folks, although the 320 has an awesome engine, apart from a brilliant steering, decent underthigh support in the rear seat & rear AC vents, the X1 won the contest. As mentioned earlier we chose Deep Sea Blue, they have a couple of those in stock & we're planning to take delivery on Thursday. Will keep you posted in case any unforeseen circumstances pop up again!
Congratulations Suman! Looking forward to your ownership review. You also get to choose the interior trim (seat colour etc.) for the CE? I guess beige goes well with the deep sea blue exterior.

Hey Suman, congratulations. Fine choice. And a great colour too. I have seen the blue and it looks fantastic in the flesh. Awaiting your ownership report soon then. Good luck!

@Suman
Had you checked the almost new X1s listed on team BHP classifieds? I am not sure if it would have resulted in substantial saving (Or there could be location issues too).

Congrats Suman!! I read on the other thread of how you think the X1 meets your needs the best. Have fun cruising & drive safe. We aren't going to let you off without a full ownership report

BTW, change those lousy run-flats to regular Michelins. Giant leap forward in ride & handling and no, the warranty isn't affected.

P.S. : Lucky you! Not everyone gets to double their budget in the midst of deciding options. Seeing the options on this thread's poll made me smile.

Congrats Suman Bhai. Followed this thread. Was hoping you would settle for X1, but kept my comments to myself as you had enough of them already to play havoc with your own views. Drive safe, have fun.

Maha congrats. You have now officially become a vadda aadmi! Congrats on your bundle of joy

What I personally liked is that you get the car in 3 days, and not 2 years unlike the time you ran this thread. I am personally ecstatic that this thread is now dead n buried

Congrats! Blue is the best colour for X1. Get the cushiest tires you can find and you will be all set with ride quality!! You already have more handling that you need.

Congratulations..!! BTW I was under the impression that X1 had a 3-4 month waiting on it. How come you getting it so fast?
