How fast do you already need to go in an SUV? That's why I also own a Lamborghini...

I think this is a keeper in the Quote department! Nice answer Elie. I think you should put this one in your signature on here. :clap:

I drove the I6 turbo version and it handles quite well. That with a DINAN chip will put out close to 400hp for much less $$

I do love the V8TT though. I don't know if its a common thing, but a friend of mine's has been in the shop for 2 months back and forth consistently.

They are giving him a credit to replace the car.

Today is the day...My new BMW X6 twin turbo V8 is being delivered to my house at 10:00 Thank you to everyone that assisted me in making my decision. I want to recommend Daniel Fox from Nick Alexander BMW in Downtown L.A. (323-583-1901) to anyone that wants to purchase or lease a BMW. This guy is extremely professional and gets straight to the bottom line! His business card title says it all " Private Client Services"

I feel that I made the correct one and will post pics as we start customizing it! GFG Wheels here we come...

Can you please PM me the deal you got on it (if it's a lease)? I have a friend ready to pull the trigger on one here in NorCal and just want to make sure he's getting the best deal possible.

Congrats! I really love the styling of the X6, very dynamic! Let us know how you like your engine choice! I've heard the V8TT is a serious brute!

Well here is my next dilema...21" or 22" wheels. If I go 21" then I can purchase the Dunlop run flat tires that BMW offers. If I go 22" then Pirelli makes the proper sizes but since there is no spare for the BMW if something goes wrong I will need to rely on roadside service.

I have deiced on GFG forged 3-piece Newport wheels with a matte black lip, gloss black center with machined lines and flange. But...21" or 22"?

By the way the truck is Jet Black.

i would go with 21", since this is your DD, the RFTs arent exactly the best performers, but they are pretty smooth and comfortable, after all, you do have a lamborghini for the fun times, plus if you get a flat in a regular tire, you have to get a flat bed

Do you have pictures of X6s with the two sizes? I have only seen one on wheels when they first came out, but his fitments looked horrible. Those wheels are clean.

Ok, these are 22s...





Judging by these pics, I would say go with the 22. A 21 could look alright if it was all black with a thicker tire, but with those GFG's, I would do a 22.
