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.

Considering X6 need advice on budget

New here and I am about to purchase a new car for my wife. We both like the X6, but my budget is around $45K max. Can a good example be had for this price? Thanks

You said "new car". If you mean a new to you car, not sure what the used X6s are going for. If you mean a new X6, the 35i start at $57,000 or so before options.

Good luck.

I don't think the X6 is out long enough for you to get that kind of number. Check out Kelly Blue Book - KBB. I just looked at the first page. There are several 2009 35i which are showing in the upper $50s.

Good luck.

X6's hold their value freakishly well. It's very odd to me as it's relatively easy to buy one new for $500 or less over invoice. Usually cars that hold their value so well also sell for MSRP or close to it when new. I'm usually a proponent of buying a 1-2 year old car - let the original owner get killed on the initial depreciation. But on the X6, the savings would never be substantial enough for me to justify buying used, especially when factoring in special low-rate financing, full warranties and maintenance etc.

I think the residual on my lease (2010 50i) was 60%. The first owner is not getting killed. BMWs usually lease well, I guess because of the resale value. The buyback on my 36 mo lease is over $60K and I' not up for another 19 months.

Try to find a used 2008 X6 for 60% of the original MSRP on cars.com. Not gonna happen. That's my point. The true resale value far exceeds logic. Based on the 36 month 60% residual, you would expect 2008 x6 35i's to be available in the low 30s, but the reality is they are in the low 50's - only a few thousand less than you can buy a new 2012 for. Crazy if you ask me.
