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.

2011 BMW X 6 tail light upgrade

Trying to get a general opinion. Has anyone upgraded their tail lights to the new LED ones? I have a 2011 X6. That was the year before BMW changed them. Is it worth it? Feed back appreciated. Thanks

It really pisses me off that bmw didn't give the 2011 x6 the black line tail lights. Every other model that year had them. Ugh!!
