More fun, better looking than the X5
By DCAreaBMWowner on


2008 BMW X6 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Very happy with the X6 after almost 2 months. I love the handling with the sport package; much improved over my 2007 X5 4.4i. No reliability problems yet. Definitely a head turner and I enjoy the convenience of an SUV without the boxy SUV reputation. The turbo six performs as well as the V-8 in the 4.8i X5, but gets significantly better gas mileage. I didn't want to wait a few months for availability of the turbo V-8, but at current gas prices, the turbo six is an adequate choice. You just have to push it a little harder.

Best Features

Styling, quiet and comfortable interior, handles more like a sport sedan than the X5, which is already pretty good. Comfort seats are worth the cost. Ventilated, active seats are not worth the money.

Worst Features

Back up camera is a waste of money (it should be de-coupled from the technology package). The sloping rear roof looks good from the outside, but creates a small, dark rear window.
