Are u satisfied with X6 5.0 ?

Since X6 5.0 has 4.4 l twin-turbo motor I'm interested in how does it behave ? Any complains, any issues ? Are u generally satisfied with the new turbo motor of BMW ?

LOVE IT! A big difference after having two 4.4i E53s and a 4.8i E70. Great engine, she just goes. No
lag whatsoever. If you have a lead foot, the needle on your gas gauge will move as quickly as the needle on the speedo.

Absolutely. I drive in sport mode most of the time and it is a blast. It still amazes me that a vehicle of the X6's size can move down the road with such speed and poise. The fuel economy is not good, but so what, you don't buy the 5.0 to save on gas! Have fun!

Sounds good, yet the professional drivers say there is turbo lag. I wish we could attain a broader set of experiences. Important criteria would be 1) acceleration from standstill. 2) passing acceleration in the 40 - 70mph range.
