Mein Auto: 2007 X3 Crimson/Beige
Post 2010 X6 xDrive35i Info

Hello X6 enthusiasts! I'm seriously considering upgrading from my 07 X3 to a 10 X6 35i. I've found an interesting low mileage example but it is located at remote dealership several hundred miles away. Are there any querks or issues common to the 2010 model year I should be on the look out for? Are their specific things I should ask the dealer about?

Any help / information would be greatly appreciated!

Mein Auto: 2011 X6 35i/Past E90 335i
I own a 2011 model and there is nothing that I can think of-running very well for the amount time I have driven it. Just eclipsed $9.00 per gallon in Italy, so my other is driven often. Hoewver, I dust her off periodically and hit the open roads and drive it like its suppose to be driven; not below a 100 mph on the autostrada or in between speeding camera's.

if that 2010 x6 with N54 engine and 6 speeds box, you better try 2011 X6 with N55 engine and 8 speeds box.

Not many 2011s out there and the ones I see are 10k+ over my price range. What is wrong with the N54 / 6 speed gear box combination?

HPFP = High Pressure Fuel Pump. Here's an article on the concern and potential legal issues being raised by prior pissed off owners...

Mein Auto: Was 2010 X6 35i
Just had my 2010 X6 35i bought back due to numerous issues with the engine. Everyone I know who bought 2011 or better seems to have had minimal engine issues compared to 2010 or earlier.
