For the money an M X6 costs, there are a plethora of other cars I'd rather have and that are actually worth the high price tag.

PS - While I don't loathe the X6, especially with winter coming up, turns out, I am not a truck guy and can't wait to get back into a car for a daily driver.
Agree with you here. Very similar experience. Maybe it is the tranny and not so much the turbo. Can't say for sure. I have the 2012 35i. I'm definitely not a truck guy either. Can't wait to jump on the M4 when it is available. By then, my daughter will be old enough to deal with sitting in the back of a coupe
