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.

very small chip on my 2013 X6

Just got my 2013 X6 this month, and found there is 1 or 2 mm chip on rear seat handle two weeks later after I picked up my X6. I don't know when and how it happened? (maybe I did it accidentally or dealer did it during the paint protection process). My sales is nice to take care it. They did touch-up, but it looks not good. I can still see the chip. I'm planing to paint the whole handle. Service adviser recommended to do touch up only, since the original BMW paint is much better than the one auto shop uses. If you were me, will you only do touch up, or pain the whole handle? In case, I need to pay it, is it worth to pay few hundreds for small chip.

Just do the chip repair. I just fixed 2 on my X6 and I use a sharp tooth pick to apply the paint. Wait for it to dry and then have a look some times your need to repeat it before you apply the clear.
