My wife has an X1, but I've left BMW. An F31 with rwd and a manual would bring me back. Two awd cars in TX is just stupid (as is one, but there was no other way to get the N55 in something close to a wagon format).
The F31 is a good bit larger inside and out than the X1, and a good bit lighter and lower to the ground than the X3. If it were offered with RWD and a manual, it would differentiate itself from those two quite well, with greater practicality (and arguably better looks) than the F30.
I realize my desires don't gel with BMWNA, so I don't really have to worry about buying an F31 as they'll never offer me what I want.
