For the shock absorber, did you mention anything to them or they caught it out on their own? Happy to see that BMW covers the entire suspension till the 50k mark, shows the confidence that they have in their products.

Thanks coolboy. Yup its actually fun to drive on hills with loads of torque and stability on curves. Amazing machine.

As for shocks, they diagnosed it , it was a very minor leak. I am very happy with Deutsche Motoren , Moti Nagar team.

Warranty is not 50k , it's for 100k and 5 yrs under BSI Ultimate.

Q: changing the tyres to tubless wont void the warranty?



Didn't know that the space saver is so puny @ 135/80 though!

Appreciate JK. Tubeless technically is not recommended but generally they honour it. At least they understand and respond to customer queries & concerns.

Now I understand why they recommend RFT in Indian conditions is because these machines are seriously fast and RFT is a safe bet in case of a tyre burst.

RFT are a pain when you are driving alone or on rough roads.

Space saver do look like a bike tyre. But there is no other solution as a full size tyre will eat up the whole of boot space.

Update after pre monsoon checkup call..

I had earlier also mentioned them about slight sound from damper. Very slight noise during cold start. So this time they replaced the Damper.

Ref no 11237823191 - Cost Rs 22779/- Replaced under BSI.

Also replaced Break pad wear sensor
Ref no 34356792565 - Cost Rs 1757/- Replaced under BRI

Net net i didn't pay anything. Learned a new term BRI ie BMW repair inclusive.
BSI + BRI = Ultimate package.

The insurance also was renewed. Bought TATA AIG Autosecure Zero dep insurance with Engine secure (Hydro lock) , Key replacement, Loss of personal belongings, Emergency transport and hotel expenses.

Total damages Rs 72741/-

Went for a trip to Narkhanda. Drove via chail road. Sadhupul has a temporary route. Visited to Hatu peak also. Accent was effortless for this machine. Hairpin bends were breeze.

Sharing some pics..

Update after regular annual service for 2017.

Drove about 15k kms in this one year and drove BM to may places likes Pangot, Chopta, Sambar lake, Sariska, Dalhousie, Shimla, Rajgarh.

No Major issues faced. Never faced GC issue any where.
Observation during service were Right side shock absorber had minor leakage and was replaced under BSI. Windshield washer was not spraying properly, that too replaced under BSI.

I enquired about ATF change and got reply ATF does not require a change in X1 , only topup if required. Need to do research on this.

2 RFT's need change. Zeroed Pirelli P7 XL.

Good to see the X1 being used across all terrains, nothing is worse than buying an expensive car & keeping it under wraps in wool with resale value or maintenance worries in mind all the time!

Thanks & Agree. Actually these machines performs awesomely on hills and has been reliable too. With BSI as support you get lots of confidence to drive to difficult terrains. X series has decent GC which also helps.

Which is what I m closely following, since I've begun to lust for the F30. Are you running RFTs or tubeless tires now?
