[quote=HREM3;9397953]Those of you who think the X6M is ugly have never seen one in person.

Sorry but I've seen the X6M and X6 in person. They are both ugly. In fact my dealer won't even stock either of them since the last X6 he had in stock took 9 months to sell, and it wound up getting shipped to the east coast.

Funny story considering X6 sales have surpassed BMWs expectations.

I'd imagine similar results with an X6M
When the M3 starts to gain ground, is that 3rd gear?

My salesman has said that the X6/X6M vehicles are a flop around here. Maybe other states have better sales.

Maybe your dealer should drop the price from 20k over invoice to MSRP....... he might sell 1 or 2.

i would imagine that there are alot of them in the NC area....... considering that is where they are made.

I think the X6M is stunning in person, it has such a nice road presence and rear end.. with a tune it makes 700hp

When he did have the X6 on the lot, I saw that it was priced at $250 over dealer invoice. At the time, it looked like a great price.

On the other hand, the E92 M3 is indeed faster than a X6M stock for stock

http://www.fastestlaps.com/compariso...-bmw_x6_m.html


But a simple chip tune on the X6M and the game is over for M3...
Interesting.... I would think the X6M is faster. Makes me feel less intimidated when I pull up next to one.

My brother was picking up his E93 M3 this weekend and when he was doing the paperwork we started talking to the salesman about the X5 M / X6 M. He said that when they have an X5 M or X6 M on the showroom floor it usually sells within hours.

It must be a regional thing.

I saw one leaving the Open Road BMW Dealership, I personally love the X6M, having the ability to accelerate that fast in an SUV is just phenomenal, and I think it looks good for an SUV.

Every I know loves the x6m with the exception of a very few M3 owners. I wonder why that is the case?

Many in NNJ. As far as I know, there are at least 3 X6Ms, 5 X5Ms around Edgewater and Palisades Park, NJ.
