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.

Do NOT Buy From!

Talk about horrible experience and terrible customer service. Recently purchase 2 items - wheel locks and spacers. Returned both - decided wheel locks were a waste of time and found out after receiving the spacers that Bimmian does not sell spacers for the front wheels. Note - BOTH items arrived in broken/beat up packaging.

Their return policies are draconian. If you want a refund, there is a restocking fee. Bad enough but not unique. However, to process a return you must send the item at your own expense to a PO Box address in Oshawa Canada through USPS using a tracking service and a customs declarations form. No other carrier is accepted by them!

No refund was issued until I asked about it, confirming the delivery to them by the tracking number. Then they said that one of the items had been installed (spacers) - the 2 spacers had never been taken out of the box they arrived in - and since I was looking for spacers for all 4 wheels there is no reason to install just two! Their option was to receive only a 50% refund or they would send the spacers back to me - AT MY SHIPPING COST!

I will never do business with this company again and hopefully this will save someone else the aggravation and cost.

I had the same experience with their return policy. They sent me the part and I'm the one who had to pay to return it to Canada. Most of the products they carry are of low quality and does not have the OEM fit they claim. I recommend everyone to Steer clear of this vendor.
