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.

Best accessories?

I picked up the X6 BMW sunshade today that I had to special order last week. To be honest, I thought it would be a cheap rollup screen that I had overpaid for. Boy was I surprised when he handed me a larger cardboard box.

I waited until I got home to open it. Even more surprised with what was inside!

The sunshade comes in a vinyl sleeve. Inside the sleeve was a foldable heavy duty sunshade that looks like it will last a long time. My son said it looked "bullet proof!".

Are there any other dealer accessories that you really like or would recommend? Thanks!

Here are some pictures of the BMW sun shade custom-fit for our X6's. I think it lists for $60, but 10-15% discounts are available.



It comes in this vinyl sleeve:




and it must have a cardboard-like material in between the outer layers:




this pic shows the outside and the inside layers:




origami? not quite!





and installed:





I just ordered my Lux H8 V3 Angel Eyes today; hope to get them in early October.

Hey those are real nice. I'd specially like the angel eyes on it, it'll look real neat. I've also been looking/trying to find bmw accessories online shops that wouldn't rip me off as much but I haven't found any yet. Well anyhow, i think I'll try locking in a sun shade like yours on mine. Will post pics as soon as I get them.

Speaking on BMW accessories, I ran across this LED daytime running light on the official BMW site today. Anyone know anything about this item for the X6 and where they would be installed? It did state that it was available for the X6.

Thanks!
