BMW has announced some product changes starting with September 2010 production. The changes apply to all BMW Models, including the 1, 3, M3, 5, 5GT, 7, X5, X6, and Z4 models. FULL list of changes INSIDE.
When’s the last time you saw a 5,300+ pound car (stock) run 12.5 in the quarter mile? That’s exactly what this 2010 X6M did in Bahrain. See and listen to the ferocity that is the X6M jet down the track. Do NOT mess with these trucks on the road!
Reviewer Scott Burgess from the Detroit News test drives the X6M and comes away eating crow (i.e. thoroughly impressed with the super truck despite his initial prediction).
German mega-tuner AC Schnitzer does one thing very well, that is leaving no stone unturn when it comes to BMW tuning. They will do their work on every model that BMW churns out, no matter how low volume the car is. In this case, they’ve taken the BMW X6 M and added their unique spin to the equation. Compared to recent modifications available from AC Schnitzer, their program for the X6M is refreshingly more reserved and more tasteful.
Other publications have criticized the X6 as being a poor off-roader, but let’s be honest – the X6 and X6M will mostly be used by their owners for highway duties. And for that, Winding Road calls it a high-speed highway missle. Read on.

Vorsteiner is working on some new kit for the BMW X6M, here are some of the initial photos of their project.
AC Schnitzer has debuted the ACS X6M at the AutomodEx Tuner Show in Dubai. Currently, they are only showcasing the cosmetic aero kit, but have plans for engine tuning as well. The centerpiece of the aero parts is the hood, which contains a see through window allowing a view of the engine (as seen on other cars such as Corvette ZR1, Ferraris, and Lamborghinis). Other parts include full bumper and fender replacements, sideskirts, 22″ wheels, rear diffuser, and rear wing.
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.
