Ever wish that the coupe-shaped X6 was an actual coupe? Well, that can now come true. The Russian tuner ArmorTech has now been able to convert the X6 from a 4-door SAV to a 2-door SAV coupe.
They were able to accomplish this by pushing the B-pillar backwards, adding 250mm (9.8 inch) longer front doors, and moving the rear window forward 200mm (7.9 inches). As part of the conversion, the company also installed modified front seats which tilt and slide forward to allow passengers easy access to the rear seat.
As part of the conversion, customers may also order performance upgrades (engine, suspension, exhaust, brakes) as well as additional cosmetic upgrades (if the two … CONTINUED

BMW Performance parts for the X5 and X6 were recently released at the Geneva Autoshow last month. Until now all we had to work on were the live shots taken @ the autoshow itself. Now it seems, BMW is putting out the official wallpapers and photos to go along with more information about these cars and available accesories.
We will update this thread as higher resolution photos become available.

Well, as some of you may remember, Mr. Clarkson made a point of showing how poorly the BMW SAVs performed off road. BMW shot back quickly with their snow driving youtube videos, but now Clarkson’s own magazine, Top Gear now seems to approve of the off road capabilities of the X6.
The Japanese tuning company Vertice has released its X6 aero kit. The kit is entirely carbon fiber construction and offers a less aggressive alternative to the mostly wild aero kits that are currently on the market for the X6.
The X6M seems to be the current vehicle of tuning choice for several notable tuners. At the 2010 Geneva show, Lumma has debuted their CLR X 650 M, a visually and mechanically upgraded version of the X6M. The cosmetic upgrades are obvious, but underneath the hood, the power has been bumped to 650ps.
Hamann has debuted its “Tycoon” X6M at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. the Tycoon is a 670hp/737lb-ft torque monster (+123hp / 236tq over factory), and it looks like it. The ECU has been reflashed and paired with an exhaust system. While some may not like the radical look, this is undeniably a car which gets some attention.
