In terms of handling, the White Shark receives a lower ride height (40mm front / 30mm rear).

Factory 20" wheels have been powdercoated gloss black and a black chrome grille has been fitted to the hood, as well as some other external modifications bits.


PRICING:
ECU reflash -- $1,160 (849 euros)
Lowering Kit / black grille / various external bits -- $1,730 (1,266 euros).

Compared to others (AC Schnitzer, Lumma) this one doesn't look too bad. Hopefully comes without "mc chip" written all over the car.

Best tuner X6 I've seen to date.
I like the widebody treatment especially.

Looks sick. I like the new X6. They need to get rid of those stock center caps and put the new BMW ones on. Those white/offwhite rings are fugly.

It basically is stock, with some changes (exterior):

- The painted rims
- The painted grills
- And of course the front and rear has been lowered (which makes the car look a lot wider!)

It seems mostly stock. I think the point of this car is it's "tuned" rather than the usual "went through pep boys with a magnet and make it look gaudy" approach. I would think diesels are very ripe for tuning.

I like the fact that these guys didn't go overboard and 'tried hard and failed' to make it look better. It's subtle enough to make it look different, just about the right amount of change for my taste.

The wheels look a little small. A bit more rubber in there or just an inch bigger would make it look better, for me personally.

But that looks really good.

Edit: Actually the front wheels look good. The rear wheels just caught my eye before.

I guess since you posted here, you qualify as 'one of these weirdos here' too

I'm not saying that I like MC's stuff, all I said is that I like the looks of this X6 way better than most of these other companies like Hamman, etc. IMO most of them are trying way too hard especially with the front or rear bumper or the wheels. I have yet to see a wheel from ANY of those aftermarket companies were I would go and say 'YES' that's what I like....

But then again, it's all in the eye of the beholder!

Mine is running 367BHP, it does go very well and returns 34MPG cruising: after 3800 miles, it's getting better as the miles go up. Acceleration is very quick and suprises most who see it pull away from them.

Hi,

looks quiet good. But the green "Umweltzone" plate disturbs the clean look.
