Xbimmers member largehosier provides us this great review (plus photos) of his new X1 2.3d xDrive. The car is everything he hoped it would be, and having owned 9 cars in the past 12 years, he has plenty of comparison.

Some forum members have criticized the look of the new F10 5-series with smaller wheels and even the sport wheels that are on the 550i.

Here is it folks! The BMW M1 test mule in its real bumper, widened fenders, integrated duckbill trunk spoiler, upgraded M wheels, large brakes with cross-drilled rotors, and other bits of M goodies!!
