If you have not driven the newer 07 n52 powered x3, it is a different car from the earlier years. Also...Something must be right, because that x-car owns about 15-18% of the euro small suv market, and is voted most reliable by many of the motoring clubs in Germany. Furthermore, if you reflect on the design details of new x1, you will know they are not playing around this time. In a short time, it may own the small premium suv market, hands down.
Expect the n54 w/about 325+hp, w/the 7speed DCT... -and maybe even the [twin-power] single turbocharged n55.
The DCT may in fact be the only tranny offered.
