Sensor problems under 95,000 km

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. Show details

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

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. Show details

Fantastic Entry Level BMW

A BMW was never on my radar until I looked at a friends X1 and was surprised at how little it cost. Although I have the base model, it has plenty of features. I love the Sports Mode and automatic parking. The only negative is the number of subscription offers available these days to compliment the electronic equipment such as concierge, maps, apple play. Overall, a great car.

Love my Beemer

Just love it.

Beautiful to drive, great to passenger. Easy to clean.

Great vision, love the sunroof, upgraded and got the M Sports pack so love the leather seats and interior.

Fits four adults very comfortably and even the grandchilds baby seat.

Have the run flat tyres - which I'm not sure about.

Beautiful car, let down by lack of Apple car play

The new 2016 X1 is a much improved version of the last. It is a perfect small SUV city car. So far, it's been a very reliable ride. We got complementary 5-year free service which was an added bonus. The innovation and comfort package are an extra $2000 each but I felt were well worth it (make sure you negotiate with the BMW dealers and never pay RRP!)


The navigation system is a touch laggy. We also found out the car was not compatible with Apple car play and there was no way around it.

Questions & Answers

Nicola · X1 F48 sDrive18d (2015-2024)

Does this car fit three car seats in the back?


I doubt it. It will definitely fit 2, but the middle section would be a bit small for a 3rd. All the back seats can fold down.
