Hi,

I've had my X250D since end of March 2018 and have to say this has been an uplifting experience.
So far I've done 15000 miles in it and every mile has been a joyful journey.
I must say that I wanted to wait for the 3L version but patience got the better of me. And I have no regrets - I'll upgrade to the 3L version in a few years time.
So far I have only seen one other X-Class on the road. I work mainly in the north of Scotland (Mondays to Fridays). Live in Glasgow area (Weekends).
My previous pickup i used (and still use) is a Isuzu D-Max (Stage 1 Mapped) and the difference is day and night. (My wife now gets to drive the Isuzu on weekends and winter time :grin2:)
Well. that's about that for introduction.
Hope to get some more info about some mods...if there are any apart from Brabus (way too expensive for only a few hp imo)

Oh, and thanks for letting me join :wink2:

Welcome to the forum Sudaf, great to hear you've been happy with the 250D over the past 6 months. Quite the step up over your Isuzu D Max lol. Haven't seen a whole lot of aftermarket support yet, at least not anything that's reasonably priced.

Welcome.


Enjoy the exclusivity while you can although all the questions might get annoying. Bought myself a Toyota FR-S when it first came out and I was in the same boat till a few weeks later when everyone had one.

Hi Omar,

I use mine for business as well. Not towing anything, yet. Just got a lot of equipment in the back that I need to do my work.
I have not found anything else other than the BRABUS remapping but not going to pay that much for so little power upgrade. On my Isuzu I remapped that for under £400 and about three times the power than the Brabus upgrade.
I have a local dealer (that specialises in Lotus racing) that I take my other car to for servicing and mods. My next step would be to go to them to see what they could do. First mod would be lights. The X250's main dim lights are just not good enough. Fine for town driving but out here in the sticks, I just do not see any deer/animal until I am right close to them.
Remapping will probably take a while to catch on as there are probably going to be more X350's than the X250 on the road. (Still only seen 1 other X250 since April).
