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.

X6 Rack Options

Here's from the FWIW dept:

Rack options for the X6 are the OEM BMW roof rails:
#51952165691 silver $552
#51952165700 black $359.43
(Parts price only)

But in order to use these you still need crossbars. For this Thule makes the ARB53 AeroBlade Load Bar ($150). In order to install the load bars to the factory rack you need the 450R Rapid Traverse Foot Pack ($190) which clamps the load bars to the factory rack.

The above gets pricey with a lot of parts, and I personally didn't want the factory rack permanently installed, so I opted for just the Thule setup which requires the following:
1. ARB53 AeroBlade Load Bar Pair ($150 - bought at local REI during a 20% off sale for 130)
2. 480R Rapid Traverse Foot Pack ($190 - bought at local REI during a 20% off sale for 150)
3. KIT1526 For 480/480R Foot Packs only - (this kit includes 4 rubber feet for the foot pack above and is difficult to find - I ordered through Amazon) ($80)
