X6M - My 2 Week Review with Pics

A bit of background history on me. When the X6 hit the market, I fell instantly in love with it. There was no question about it. But I do agree with most. You either love it or hate it.

As an X5 owner for quite some time, I was excited to see BMW create a coupe version of the SUV/SAV line so I was beside myself when BMW announced an ///M version for both of these great vehicles. We canceled our plans to order a MY2010 X6 and held on till someone (dealer) knew enough about the ///M version so we could place our order and start the waiting game for delivery.

We were struggling to get a call back from a handful of dealers and 2 weeks ago I found a So Cal dealer that just happened to have the "exact" config we wanted on the showroom floor with 6 miles on it and no test drives. More importantly, they actually called us back to set up a meet and greet. So away we went to see if we could put a deal together. Long story shot, we did...

...fast forward 2 weeks to today.

The vehicle is nothing short of AMAZING or M-AZING if you will. My office is about 14 miles from my house but I find myself driving about 35 to get to it and about the same on my way home. I just don't want to stop driving her. It's that BIG of a grin generator.

A couple of quick notes from my stand point:

Power - Low end torque and no turbo lag whatsoever. Can't wait to try the launch control after 1200 miles. I’m truly amazed at what BMW accomplished with this engine.

Technology - The new iDrive with Top View Camera system is light years ahead of the old iDrive system and a welcome change. It’s fast and looks great!

Ride - Without the "M" button enabled, the ride is quite nice and smooth. With the "M" button mashed is usually where I choose to go and it rides like you think it would. Tight all around.

Seats - The sport seats work out very well for me. No discomfort at all and fit me extremely well for a guy that’s 6’4”.

Color - I’ve always been a sucker for Alpine White, nothing more to say on that topic. The interior is Bamboo/Black. It’s a great color combination.

Looks - It’s a head turner for sure. The X6M’s stance just looks mean as hell to me. It always has.

Exhaust - Without the “M” button mashed it’s pretty quiet but sounds great. With the “M” button mashed it just sounds mean. I’m at about 700 miles and I have noticed that the note is starting to change a bit. It’s getting deeper and is producing more bass.

For all the people out there that are on the fence about this purchase. Do it! You won’t regret it at all. For all the people awaiting delivery, I’d love to see photos of the X5M as I haven’t had a chance to see one yet.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to shoot away...

Great write up. Do you have any pics of how the top view camera looks on the screen. I don't think i have been able to locate a good pic that didn't appear as a "marketing" pic.
