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.

Need Premium Sound for IPOD?

I ordered my X6 35 without the Premium Sound but want to integrate an IPOD. In the accessories section, there is an IPOD connector for about 300-400. If I get that, would I be able to control the IPOD through the IDrive?

There are two ways to control your IPOD. One is by using the AUX and you will not be able to control the IPOD through the iDrive. The second way is by using the USB interface in the glove box. That will cost you about $600 to $800 to purchase and install. You will be able to control the IPOD through the iDrive by using the Interface connector. One thing that the dealership told me is if I buy the Interface connector it must be from a BMW dealership in order for them to install it.

You can add an iPod Interface Adapter for $320 as an option and it will be integrated in to iDrive. Retrofitting it will cost more, but it will work the same way.
