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.

how long from order to delivery in New England?

The real question is how long to get a production slot?

Anyone know if an order for an X6 is placed in December, how long to expect delivery in the north east? I think the strong demand for X3 may be slowing the delivery of X6/X5?

Thanks

I ordered a 2012 X6 50i on 10/15/11. Picking it up 12/12/11. It took a month before dealer confirmed production slot. from actual start of production, it took less than 2 weeks to deliver to dealer in NY.

Hello all, I was just a little anxious today. I was told last Friday the 13th that my vehicle was released to the carrier for transport to port of exit.
I don't know what that means. I'm guessing it means it is on a truck and ready for transport to dealer. Today is the 17th, and still no car. How long does it usually take to get an X6 delivered from the Spartansburg S.C. plant to New Jersey?

Not sure the answer to your question. I don't think domestic cars go to VPC? So it should be simply factory to dealer. Depends on how many stops are scheduled at other dealers?

I was wondering when did you order? And when did production start. I'm waiting on mine and want to preserve the year end incentives which means it must be delivered by 2/28.

Thanks

Great news, right after I posted this, I got the call fro my dealer. I ordered 11/29/11, picking it up Friday. Production started day after Christmas 12/26. The dealer told me the plant was closed during the holiday week, so I lost a week. All in all it took 6 1/2 weeks but felt like 52 weeks. I can't wait till Friiiiiday : )

Cool. Congrats.

Post some pics once you pick up! Wonder if there are any changes to the car post 1/1/12?

Would be sweet if they put the LED bulbs from the X5 on...

Good luck,
DRP

Hope you're Friday went as expected.

Quick question...are the headlight rings still the yellowish halogens? Or did they get updated to why the X5 is coming with these days?

Thanks,
enjoy the new baby... lets see some pics:thumb up:
