am not very sure. waiting for an expert reply from the OSS team at Germany. the reason given by the local dealership is that the insulator would trap heat inside the compartment. which is not very convincing. also according to the BMW forums abroad, many have had this retrofitted onto their drive 28's which are diesel engines

Saturday, the day to take out the X1 for a spin, wherein i completed 100 KMS on the ODO. Wanted to try out and check the fuel savings while using the ECOPRO function as well as driving on D Mode with ECOPRO on and Off. Of course driving on ECOPRO doesn't feel good, as the throttle response, etc is limited and the engine feels choked. Even the gears seem to change at a very lazy pace; that on an incline i found it difficult to overtake a Dual Mutliaxle 16 wheel truck, loaded with a huge container!


here are the results.

Mileage at the Start of the Drive @ 44 KMS on the ODO

Mileage with ECOPRO Switched Off!

Mileage at the 85 KM mark with ECOPRO on:

Have decided to Keep ECOPRO mode off from now on:

Hello Sunil,

Another guy from Mangalore.

BTW, Hearty congratulations on the X1! She looks cool and simple in the white.


NOTE: My advice to you is blank out all the personal details (address, mobile number etc) from the forms that you have put in the first page. Not safe in this age of internet activity.

Anurag.

Replaced the Kagu 3D Polyester Mat with Royal Kagu 3D Polypropylene Tufted Carpet mat which fits snugly around the contours of the floor. Also received a pair a metal 'BMW' Carpet Emblems complimentary along with the Royal Kagu Mats which had to be fitted using a Torx Screwdriver and a plier.

Now time for some pics:

The metal 'BMW' emblem fitted on the Royal Kagu Carpet

One lakh!! :(
But i haven't driven a car without front parking sensors since 2011. So i was kinda desperate.
Also annoyed me that even in the highest seating position you cant see the front end of the car.
Getting the bonnet insulator/damper next week. And with that the mods will end.
The car has got everything else..

Thats quite a few bucks for the sensors. Need to check if this kit is available online (without the premium pricing). I have been told that the Bonnet Insulator cannot be fitted in a Diesel. need to re-check on that. whats their quote on the Insulator ?

That's fine I can take the car to Navnit as long as they can install it and it doesn't void any warranties and is an original part.

it will be a BMW Genuine Part and fitment by the BMW dealer will not void warranty. its called retrofitment according to their lingo. will get back to you in a couple of days with their quote and other logistic details
