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.

my wish list:
new dashboard, like new 5.
new controlborad, like 5gt.
new streelingwheel with new shift-pad, like new X3
new gear shift, like new 7.
new HUD, with colors.
new rear lighting, like 3coupe, 5, 5gt 7, X1, X3, X5, Z4.

sth that shouldn't list:
engine and gearbox. There's no news about any newer than N55 + 8SPD box, so 2012 X6 should using N55 + 8SPD BOX.

coz, totally personal gus, NOT from BMW. but wish my gus is right~~

I would not count on most of that list ... using the X5 LCI as an indication, the X6 LCI will most likely be very minor ...

As long as they update the lighting, I'll be happy... I'd also like to see blind spot warning. Yea, I'm a gadget guy

They are built down the same line as the X5 aren't they ?
So BMXNA Carolina will swap to 2012 VIN numbers on April 1 2011, and for sure that will also be the break date for any improvements being launched.

What those improvements will be, are not known yet.

I found this on another forum:
Hope there is more than just this...
I don't know how official this is.


X6M / X5M March 2011 Production Changes

Beginning with March production, the following changes take place for X5 M and X6M:
X5M and X6M each become 2012 models
Each receives as standard equipment iPod/USB Adapter (6FL)
X5M receives power tailgate as standard equipment
Each receives BMW Apps (6NR) as an option with April production
The BMW Apps (6NR) is described as:

Coming as the next advancement in BMW's ConnectedDrive Strategy, BMW Apps will provide new, unique ways of connecting driver, vehicle, and iPhone. Please be advised that adding option 6NR to any vehicle will automatically add Smartphone Integration (6NF) without an additional charge. 6NF will no longer be available as a standalone option. At the time of launch, BMW Apps will offer three functional areas (Apps, Plugin, and Video Playback).
Apps will consist of the BMW Connected App and BMW Certified 3rd Party Apps. The BMW Connected App is a free package available for download at Apple's App Store and currently includes Web Radio, Facebook and Twitter. Announcements for BMW Certified 3rd Party Apps will be forthcoming.
Plugin allows the user to take advantage of Apple iTunes features (such s Genius, album art, compiling playlists, etc.) that were previously unavailable. In essence, this function brings the look and feel of Apple's iPod interface to the iDrive display (requires snap in adapter)
Video Playback enables the user to view any video playback from their iPhone via the iDrive display when the vehicle is stationary (requires snap in adapter).

BMW Apps will be available on all BMW vehicles as of March, except for X3, X5, and X6 models, where the availability will begin as of April. iPhone models supported include 3G, 3GS or 4 enabled with the "BMW Connected" app available free of charge at Apple's App Store.

Sounds like "BMW Connected" is a mobile internet?

I saw this too and was wondering why there are no visual changes required. Does that mean no LCI until MY 2013? It's time to change front and rear slightly but according to this bulletin it's not going to happen in MY 2012 for x6 - weird.

I just ordered a MY 2012 X6 5.0 with production scheduled for W14 (April 4). My dealer says NO cosmetic changes to car....only the addion of 3 passenger rear seat and some significant changes in the options bundling....which translates to a $800 to $1,000 price REDUCTION on average for an $83k optioned X6 5.0. I too wonder why no cosmetic updates...maybe we will all be surprised with a few changes!
