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.

Post How to check if my X6 is really 40d engine spec/model?

Hi there, I recently bought a imported UK spec X6. Can anybody let me know how do I check if my X6 is really 40d spec? Because I'm actually worried that I've been conned by my car dealer, and it could be a 30d or 35d..

I'm from a country where not all car dealers are very honest, there are cases of lower spec cars being sold at a higher spec price, and altering the documents.. etc.

Is there a website or something that I can put in the engine number and chassis to check what model is the engine?

Lift up your hood. 40d has 2 intakes and 30d has 1.
