Introduced in 2009, the BMW X1 is a compact luxury crossover SUV designed for families to provide excellent performance and good gas mileage at an affordable price. Sold around the world, the X1 is the smallest SUV that BMW sells in the US.
Sharing a similar platform with the X3 models in the BMW line, the X1 series boasts a comfortable interior, four or six cylinder engine models depending on the option chosen and the classic exterior of the BMW line adapted for the SUV. While lacking a convertible model, the X1 does offer plenty of versatility for carrying family members and cargo and even has a Sport Coupe model as well.
E84: First released in 2009, the E84 has enjoyed a great deal of success for its style and overall performance of a compact SUV crossover with luxury features. Two offshoots of the E84 series include the sDrive 20d Efficient Dynamics Edition released in 2011 and the sDrive 16d released in 2012.

The Impact of Carbon Fiber Technology
One of the more interesting aspects of the BMW X1 is the inclusion of carbon fiber technology. Carbon fiber or CF auto parts are more than twice as strong as steel while weighing less than 1/4th the amount. The strength of the carbon fiber comes from the twill weave of the various strands to form solid, durable auto parts such as the rear bumper diffuser lip and side door mirrors which are available for the BMW X1.
Scopione carbon fiber automotive parts are available for the BMW X1 and many other makes and models of vehicles as well. Scopione is one of the leading independent retailers of aftermarket carbon fiber auto parts.
