Xi San Diego Surprise

So i'm driving back from my work out at the Kona Kai on Shelter Island in Point Loma..and ..right in front of me are 3 new (2012) car models parked with their German Drivers having lunch..the 3 seies is all masked out with the crazy black and white designs...that car is much larger than the 3 we see now!!! Also, they had a mini , 2 door, coupe, the new one that looks very cool...but..the one that got me was the X1..in the coffee brown..looks larger than i expected..with big pirelli's on it..guy said it had the n55 engine set for USA..??..Is this possible ??..Great looking cars..I was stoked... GreatDay...They are testing street/road driving conditions in the area..so heads up.....

They asked that I don't take pixs, but I could look up close , and they even opened the doors so i could see the interiors...they were very cordial and were great representatives for the company....they asked how i liked my 135 cab.. how my ED went..did i get to drive it in europe (3000 mi ) before i turned it over to shipping...it was a spontaneous event...and they really didn't try to hide anything..but..I had to ask..no volunteering anything...

A few months back I saw an X1 with 35i badging on the side in OC, so with your confirmation, it looks like a 300hp N55 X1 is on it's way to the US. I would expect them to release it together with the 28i 245hp version in the fall.

There was an X1 side by side with an X3 and an X5 at the Montréal Auto Show and it was not impressive.
