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.

Question used x6 buying tips

Hi everyone,

I'm about to buy a 2009 x6 with about 35,000 miles on it. The interior is still pretty good, but some work to be done on the exterior.

He's offering me $30k. Any other things I should look out for. I'm having a friend from the dealership have a look at it tomorrow too.

I also noticed an engine icon with fluid in it on the dashboard indicator panel (think it was a transmission fluid low indicator but not sure)

Any advice on ensuring this good deal doesnt turn into a nightmare would be helpful.

CURRENT: BMW 530i - 2008LCI
SOLD: BMW 528i - 2000
White LED Angel Eyes
19" M5(f10) Rims 245/40 front and 275/35 rear

private party, used car dealer, BMW dealership.
Vehicle history, PPI, stuff like this would be useful

Another option is buying from CarMax. A piece on jalopnik really praises their 6 year warranty for being better than any CPO warranty. Take with a pinch of salt since CarMax could be paying the journo for publicity.
BMW and Mercedes Build Beta Products!
Lexus build Release Candidate Products!

Why does this matter?
CAUSE EVERY TIME someone says Lexus has better build quality, one should consider what Toyota their Lexus Engine and chassis platform comes out of and how long that part has been tested in the real world!
