X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

I have been curious about this myself, as I was looking to put larger tires as well, however Italian road laws are picky about wheels extending outside the wheel well. Post some pics of the Akphil80.

KNR Springs

I used the KNR springs on my old 2008 x5 and the front end would dip dramatically. I don't recommend these as they change the handling considerably. I went back to the STOCK BMW springs after 2 months with the aftermarket set.
