This apparently has an almost identical interior layout as his '13 128i convertible, which was a major reason this car interested him. He LOVES the gobs of power... and it has an enormous sunroof, which suits his tastes for open-air driving.

...and, I said "added", because he didn't trade anything in for it. His Northern Fleet now totals seven cars. ('57 DeSoto, '70 Caddy convertible, '81 Corvette, '97 LHS, '02 Cabrio, '07 Pacifica, and this)

Strange that he kept the Pacifica. What role will it play now that he has this?

Wait. Does it have the M-Sport pack? It's odd to see these wheels on an xDrive.

#3, According to mdecoder, the wheels were a selected option, not part of a package.

Discussed it with my dad, we've come to the conclusion this is the fastest-accelerating car he's ever owned, and second-fastest vehicle (after his FXD Harley)

#2, If you ever saw my dad's homes, you'd understand. He really, REALLY has trouble parting with something if it still has a use, even if that use is simply to be looked at. (His houses are full of vintage clocks, pocket watches, typewriters, pinball machines, slot machines, jukeboxes, musical instruments, etc.)

It appears this X1 will essentially be his all-purpose daily driver. The Pacifica if he has a need for hauling more than the Bimmer can hold. The Cabrio for when he wants total open-air driving (plus it has ridiculously low miles). The 'Vette, DeSoto and Caddy as essentially classic cars to "tinker" with and just enjoy aesthetically...

The LHS... I think he can't bear to part with it since, in his view (and mine) it's one of the most beautiful domestic sedans to come out in the last 30 years... and sometimes you just need a low-slung highway cruiser. ...and to him, it still has value as a car, despite what Kelley Blue Book thinks. Besides, in 4 years it's eligible for classic car plates/registration/insurance...

#8, The LHS would be a good car to take to Radwood or a similar festival of 90s cultural appreciation. :D

#10, Well there you go! Maybe you should tell him about it.

#11, He's never been one for participating in car shows, just going to them. He's never been able to justify hanging around somewhere for hours on end just so random people can look at his car(s).

#12, I put my '99 Buick Regal in Radwood Norcal earlier this year. I parked it, popped the hood and walked away to enjoy the show. When I was done, I left. I don't like participating as much when a show requires all cars to stay there until a certain time.
