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.

Thoughts and Opinions on 2014 E71 X6 xd35I

All, I am looking for some thoughts and opinions.
Recently purchased a used E71, I brought it to the dealer to have the mechanic look over it and see if there are any issues.

Estimate came back with the following that needs to be done:
1. Oil Filer Housing Gasket: (I do see dirt and grime around that area)
2. Upper Radiator Hose Replacement: (Dealer states that it's because of the "oil leak")
3. Drive Belt: Serpentine belt - Not making any squealing noises. (Dealer states that it's because of the "oil leak") Getting this repaired first
(However I've had past experiences with a 2006 Subaru Tribeca with 180K driving down a free way and the belt came off, luckily i was in the right lane and was able to pull into a gas station.)

Has anyone had similar or like issues with their pre-owned purchase?

Secondly I am looking for a DIY on how to change the OEM Brake Lines to
Stainless steel lines. I assume the process is the same as a 3 series which i have done before however the first time around i broke one of the hard lines wanted to avoid that with the X6.
Just things to look out for.
