2012 BMW X6 xDrive50i 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

This car is very nice. The ride is more sport than luxury as one would expect from a BMW. The interior is well thought out and the controls are very easy to use. The 8 cyl engine gives incredible power! Love the side sun shades! 10 way adjustable seats are incredible. One thing to investigate if looking to purchase is oil consumption! Twin turbo seems to consume an unusual amount of oil! I've investigated issue through forums and BMW service. 1 quart per 2-3 thousand miles supposedly is within BMW guidelines. Some mechanics say this is crazy some say this is normal. The car monitors engine oil level with an easy to read picture. Topping off oil is very easy to do. I would not purchase this car without a warranty! Having owned several BMWs I would not want to reach into my pocket for even the simplest of repairs. Very good in the snow. Run flats have come down in price so tire purchase is acceptable. Please note if replacing tired get ready to purchase all for at one time! Tire wear between tired has to be within a certain range or damage to crankcase can occur. Forget replacing two!

2012 BMW X6 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

I have had 3 previous X 5 models. The x6 is a different vehicle. It's wider,bolder, and more of a stylistic statement.
I got the sport package with 20's, which make the car look very pumped up. With these wheels and sport package be prepared for a very harsh ride if the road is rough, but you will look great bouncing over the bumps. Its much rougher than an X5. The wide cabin and big seats are great. I love the design. Feels quick with the 6.Great power train and transmission. It's Only a 4 passenger, but you will ride in style.Rear visibility ok with the camera. King of the road feel and looks to match.


Best Features

cabin design; exterior design; drive train; BMW service and ergonomics. I love driving it. Great steering feel.


Worst Features

I did order a sport package and 20's , but my new 991 carrera S porsche rides smoother with 20's. Electronic adjustable suspension is needed to relax this suspension for daily use and pump up only on demand..

Review

I love this car more than my X-5. I didn't need the wagon but wanted the size of the car.
It is a joy to drive.


Best Features

The active seat feature, power, comfort!


Worst Features

a cover for the tailgate when getting stuff in and out of the trunk.
