Hey Guys,

In short I genuinely really like this car but every car has negatives...

Regarding the 20" wheels, they are optional and you ordered them. Also, they have RFT tires, which are harsh as compared to non-RFT. It shouldn't be a surprise that the tires are harsh.

Regarding the size of the boot, again, you chose an X2 over an X1. The size of the boot shouldn't be a surprise.

I agree with your comment about using your foot to open the rear hatch. It's flakey. I rarely use it.

I also have noticed that the rear camera gets dirty and/or gets foggy. I always wipe it off with my finger in the morning before I drive away.

I was doing some work underneath the car a while back and noticed that the area you want to be kicking to open the rear hatch is between the license plate would be (north american plates). The area where it always went off was appx 4-6 inches in from the last part of the plastic bumper and appx 2-3 inches below the muffler.

My wife and I use it exclusively and rarely ever have the need to hit the push to close/open buttons. I know that they usually mount the sensors in the bumper so next time you wash your car try giving the dark trim area a wipe to see if that helps get consistency for using the hands free tail gate option
