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.

2013 X6 Roof Rails?

Does anyone know what's happened with the aluminum or black roof rails option? Can't find it on the order sheets but BMWNA still shows it in some of the pictures.

As a follow-up, I did find where BMW Parts sells a retrofit rail kit (#51952165691 silver; #51952165700 black) and appears to be a current part number. It looks like X6 roof rails are deleted for ordering new on the vehicle from the factory.

The retrofit requires removal of the headliner if I'm not mistaken. I wouldn't mind doing it once, but I don't want rails on year round. I'm looking into the Thule system that effectively clamps on to your roof over the doors.
