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.

Mein Auto: BMW, only BMW.
like the front light, dislike the rear light. i think the 4 LED rear light (older X6) is good looker than 2 LED..

anyway, X6 is a good car ever~~

Beautiful vehicle. Love that color combo. And the pictures of the new lights, front and rear, are great to see.

Did you ever get an answer about the fact that the pipes and the foglight surrounds aren't black on your car? Was that an early-build oversight or is that the way it's going to be?

Thanks,

Not sure whether the m pack cars are going to continue coming through this way? I've asked for a credit for the fog light surrounds and exhaust tips. Get this: not only are the parts not avail. yet, but they don't even have pricing info. yet!

I'm most curious to see if future M pack cars come with the sport exhaust (like the X5 Msport). Then I'll have some negotiating to do....

I'm really interested to see how things unfolds, too. I'm sure we'll probably end up ordering another X6 (possibly an X5) and I know we'd want the M-Pkg. I'm not a fan of the matte silver fog light surrounds, so I was glad that the M-Pkg removed them (or so I thought).

Do you feel like the added HP of the M-Pkg is noticeable? Worth the money on a 35i?

I haven't put my foot in it yet, so I can't comment on the power yet.
