2014 X6 what options do I need? And Leasing help!

I am considering taking a leap from my X3 to an X6 and I am curious what seasoned owners recommend option wise and what I should stay away from? I would also love any and all advice on leasing one because this will be my first time.

Thanks!

all the cameras have proven super helpful minus the ones in front of the front tires.

Premium sound is ok -- nothing earth shattering but better than basic.

Rft's are loud but saved my ass from being stranded or needing a tow once so far.

LED headlights are a must.

If you drive in cold weather the heated steering is a must.

Probably depends on your current situation.

I had a 2008 4Runner that was nearly paid off with pretty low mileage that they wanted pretty bad it seemed. They paid it off and gave me my asking for it toward the deal.

I pay just over 600/mo for my 2013 X6 50i.

Agreed on the list of options, premium sound is a must though (not because it's superb, but the basic audio systems sucks).
The LED headlamp is $1800 option but do get it, I am looking at upgrading my 2011 X6 to it, boy $6000 aftermarket H/W and S/W.


$600/mo is just awesome, even w/ only premium pkg most monthly payment will be around $699 (that's before tax and title). I looked into this last November, the problem is residual value of X6 not like 3-series, they are in 56%-57% depending on mile/yr.

I found 3-yr old X6 instead so I bought it.
