2011 BMW X6 SUV xDrive50i 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

Before I bought this monster, I did my research for almost 2months. I was at a point to purchase a Porsche Cayenne S but it paid to wait. I am totally amazed by the way it rides and what a comfort it offers over Cayenne. Absolutely there is no comparison between Porsche Cayenne and BMW X6 50i. I have looked into almost all high end car manufactures before I finalize this vehicle. I drove Porsche Cayenne, Acura ZDX, Audi Q7, Mercedes ML, Lexus RX400, and Range Rover HSE Supercharge. This BMW X6 is a truly an ultimate driving machine.


Best Features

Comfort keyless entry, Side view and or front cameras, heated steering wheel, sport suspension.


Worst Features

Lane change assist.

Review

Nothing compares. A fantastic driving experience. This car is truly the ultimate driving machine. Picked up the BMW i50 X6 and have been totally satisfied. Traded in a 2011 Porsche Cayenne S! No comparison this time the BMW IS better than the Porsche (Couldn't say that about my 911 vs M5). You will be happy with your decision if you purchase one of these.


Best Features

Power, Ride Quality, Stereo, Electronics


Worst Features

A front mounted plasma canon.

Review

Traded in a 2011 Porsche Cayenne S on the BMW 50 X6 and never looked back. Out handles the Porsche! Faster by a smidge 0.2 to 60 and 0.3 to the quarter mile. Turns a corner like a alley cat wearing sneakers! Not as fancy inside as the Porsche, but so much better outside. The Porsche looked like a Murano in the parking lot. Starts out with 400 HP and BMW will update the ECU with 40 extra ponies for $1350.00. what a deal!


Best Features

Power, handling, ride quality and looks...


Worst Features

Update the interior displays. Install hood mounted plasma cannon to destroy all lesser mortals.

Review

My salesman took me for my test ride on a freshly paved highway and secondary road. I was pleased. I didn't realize this cars Achilles heel until driving off the lot (after the sale) onto a less than perfect road. Minor road imperfections hurl the passenger about the cabin like a rag doll, eventually making one seek out the smoothest routes to avoid this very, very unpleasant ride. It appears BMW engineers could only accomplish the X6's marginal increase in performance by completely sacrificing all other driving aspects expected in a luxury vehicle ride, SUV or otherwise. Unless you only drive on freshly paved, perfectly smooth road surfaces, you will likely regret buying this vehicle.


Best Features

Head turning good looks, acceleration, headlights, brake performance and maintenance warranty.


Worst Features

Modify the suspension to correct the horribly harsh and unruly ride, provide option to run-flat only tires, reexamine the X6's many illogical controls (e.g., two step ignition and complicated cruise control), reduce excessive brake dust and improve the vehicles initial build quality.

Review

I had this car for only a couple of weeks and so far I have been having a great experience. I drove the car on several long trips and have enjoyed every mile of it. The car is agile, tight, yet very comfortable to drive. Even though I have the smaller engine there is enough oomph to pass or just have some fun accelerating. The heads up display shows all the turns when the navigation is used so your eyes are glued to the road. Quite a neat feature. Parking is a breeze when you have the camera set at top view. You can see all 4 corners and the tires before it hits the curb. Overall an excellent build car. Kudos to BMW engineers.


Best Features

Heads up display, automatic high beam, navigation maps (perspective 3D view), overall style, and limited number on the road


Worst Features

The navigation does not switch automatically to day or night mode. The rims accumulate so much brake dust in a few days.
