Things to keep in mind before Buying BMW X1

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

The New BMW X1 comes with the new standards. This is the best car under 45 lack range. It is better than Toyota Fortuner and Q3. It had the best space and good looking. I like it the most.


Worth the price
for BMW X1

Awful buying experience @ Navnit Motors. It was evident that they don’t care for customers. Despite my escalation to BMW corporate, nothing much changed in their response.


Poor workmanship of BMW X1
for BMW X1

X1 lacks the feel of a well built german car. I used it to commute to the office every day in south Delhi. The sunroof started rattling after one year, no solution was found, instead told that this will be a problem for the big sunroof. Sunroof shade sagged after 3,5 years of use, required replacement.
