Too much of road & tyre noise inside cabin. Defeats the drive.

published

I am surprised to see that none of the owners have noticed the road noise inside the cabin just when crossing 65 KMPH on any road + highways. If you take a drive to GC from City, you are sure to come out deaf due to the amount of road noise inside the cabin. It's a great car, drives great but the noise inside the cabin kills the drive. Absolutely no insulation provided for speeds over 65 kmph.

Purchased in at BMW Dealers for $70,000.

Have another think

published

There are a few limitations with this car. It has a run flat tyre system which is not ideal. One of my tyres was damaged after 5000kms and they couldn't replace the tyre until next year. Car sat unable to be used for four days. Then both back tyres had to be replaced due to fleet company approving. Sun visor is to short, cup holder too small. It's also very hard to get the apple play to sync and it states that you have to pay more for the privilege. It is also hard to keep the interior clean.

Purchased in at BMW Dealers for $61,500.

Sensor problems under 95,000 km

published

I bought a 2015 BMWX one diesel version and facing problem with the oil indicator which is showing faulty and BMW people said that’s out of the warranty but it’s only 95,000 km so I don’t think it’s a quality product. 95,000 km where is other brand is giving unlimited kilometres for seven years and this is under five years under 95,000 km. So called top brands don’t have trust on their quality. And from the beginning to till now it’s only been to BMW for servicing and all the works.

Purchased in at BMW Dealers for $50,200.

Love it

The one thing I love above all else with this car is the lack of cabin noise. It is so quiet and drives like a dream. Plenty of room and perfect for work and the family.

2016 X1 18d - best in its class (and price range)

published

This car has a stunning appearance and the drive is brilliant. Taking into account the price, i.e lower than an X3 and Mercs this is is worth a test drive.
Keep in mind that because it is alot cheaper than an X5 it does not have a premium feel like an X5 however it is certainly a better drive than Mazda and Hyundai's similar size vehicles, including top of the range Mazdas which have a similar price tag.

X1

Noticed many commenting have almost brand new cars, does anyone have one passed say 150,000k's as our last BMW X3 like VW died at 76,000k's so was appalling, all our other Japenese cars lasted beyond 300,00k's with just battry replacement & cheap servicing. Most reviews are based on a brand new vehicle which of course shouldn't have any issues lol. Would be good to know if Euro's have improved regarding reliability.

Looking to buy a X1 SDrive 18d, 2010 model. It’s coming up for its 120k service. Can anyone tell me what that involves and how much it’s might be? I’m in Sydney.

Did anyone experience problem with right engine mount (defect code 2211010100 ) at an early age of the car (below 25k)? Also, clunking noise in front suspension cause by rubber bushings (defect code 3112013900)? These 2 issues are known defect related to manufacturer but it is not honoured by BMW Australia. Google search these Technical Service Bulletins and insist on warranty cover. Google these 3 TSB’s SI B22 02 17, SI B31 05 16, SI B22 02 17 and give a copy to BMW Australia.

You got a bad car. Bushings can worn out on any car, with engine mount cracked and bushing worn at 25k? That car has been driven very roughly and recklessly and obviously off road.
