2010 BMW X6 M 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6A)
I had several turbos, incl the V12 twinturbo MBZ but this new X6M beats them all. The suspension and insane acceleration supports speeds that can land you in the big house, so one has to watch that head up display at all times. The X6M is obscenely fast and beats the Cayenne turbo. The ride feels safe at all times and the brakes are tops. The standard "drive" setting offers a cultivated ride in Rover style comfort, whereas the car undergoes a major transformation in the "sports" mode or in the additional "M" mode. This is where the fun is, even the mufflers sound different and menacing then. This is the 1st performance crossover SUV/Coupe on the road! Makes the rest look like shopping carts.
Choice of drive settings. Sound system with hard drive that allows 15 Gb of compressed music import and storage via USB or CD. Roadholding and acceleration with 555 hp on tap when needed. This is the perfect "high performance sports SUV Coupe racing car", there is nothing like it on the road.
Everything has its price and here the penalty is in the mileage which is not good. The red illuminated dash display is not easy to read, particularly in sun light and blurs. Simple black and white would work better. A near perfect car.
