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: 2013 X6 5.0
2013 X6 5.0 with PP

Guys , i'm going nuts here in Dallas Texas with my 2013 X6 5.0, here is the story .
i bought the car because i know it has the M PP ( M performance Package ) ZMX . according to BMW the 2013 BMW X6 ZMX Power (SAE)has an additional 40 hp than the Stock X6 so that puts this car at 440 hp and 480 ft lb of torque . so far so good , right ??

then i take my car to get the Dinan Stage 2 Performance Engine Software/Boost Upgrade at Classic BMW in Dallas . . so far so good too .

NOW i get a call from the service adviser 1st day saying they had an issue with the software and that they will leaving for the night and will finish it tomorrow . NO PROBLEM

then I get a call in the morning saying . OPPS . your car is too new for Dinan and they don't have that new software you got on your car . .

i call Dinan in California . a very nice guy name Jeff said no way . let me just call the dealership and verify .

he call me back and say sorry my friend your car is too new and wont get the upgrade at this time .

i say no problem . i will just go get my car and do it later . OK ??? its getting worse

i took the car and start driving . i felt like i'm driving 3.5 not 5.0 , the car is very weak and not alot of power . and started to Jump when i'm idle . i almost hit a guy in front of me . i said ohhh nooooo

then i call the dealership . they told me that :
1- the M PP dosnt have any extra HP that mean its only 400 hp .
2- they need to check my car again to make sure there is no issues with it

so i'm setting here looking everywhere for the ZMX PP and i see it all over the place that it has an additional 40 hp .

so Please help me .CUZ i'm going nuts here . PLEASE

um, if it has the m performance package it absolutely should have more horsepower...

"By ticking he appropriate box on the order sheet, the X6 xDrive35i is blessed with 315 horsepower (a gain of 15 over stock) and 330 pound-feet of torque (a 30-lb-ft gain). The larger V8-powered model sports up to 440 hp and 480 lb-ft, gains of 40 horses and 30 torques. Models not ordered with the M Performance Package retain the less powerful engines offered in 2012, and all engines are mated to eight-speed automatic gearboxes."

How do u know it drives like the 35i? U drove one before? I have the performance upgrade too for I believe $1500 or so when I ordered and it's worth every penny!
