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.

Mein Auto: 2011/11 BMW E71 40d X6

Hello All,

We`ve recently purchased a 2011 40d and have been carrying out some tasteful mods.

Now looking to complete the cosmetic look and go down the lowering and fitting of wheel spacer route.

40d is running 20" alloys with Run Flat tyre`s (will change to 19" alloys with winter run flats in november through to February)

Has anyone done this and which kit did you use as there`s loads of options, we are looking to obviously lower the X6 and make its stance more aggressive by fitting wheel spacers, but dont want the ride to become shattering.

Thanks in advance.
