X5 M & X6 M Are Out...!

Back @ Local Dealer Here In Ohio! :rofl:

Took a few snap shots for you guys... I figured these are not even on BMWUSA.com yet so why not post a preview...

















Sorry for the blur... I was kind of in a hurry since, I wasn't supposed to be back there, let alone inside them! :rofl:















Personally I'm not impressed yet... I guess I'm still an M purist at heart ie. NA & a Car... It's not too much to ask for is it? No turbos and RWD?!

But who know's they could grow on me, doubtful but maybe. The E65's and E60's did.

So let's hear what you guys think...

If money weren't an issue and the wife wanted an SUV I'm sure I'd be looking at these and Cayanne Turbos.

Otherwise, eh, but who am I to say. I couldn't afford either.

I guess if you're an M purist, you'd wonder why they built versions out of the X5 and X6 at all

but they're fast though!

weak! hopefully the BMW supercar (M8) satisifies our urges....although that new vision concept (on bmwblog.com) is a hybrid (electric+3cyl turbodiesel). someone find more oil, quick!

With a less badging on the back and the fender flares moulded (I mean come on... seriously?) it would look better. +1 on the brakes but it still looks like a beast, though.

They were building these at the BMW plant in South Carolina back when I went to visit in August 2008. I stood there confused, it all makes sense now. I'm surprised they're not at more dealerships, especially since they started producing them this time last year, possibly earlier.

I was at my dealer today, they have a Silver X5M and one Black and one really dark almost Black Blue X6M. I got to sit in the X6M. BTW, the orange peel was atrocious, as you can see in closeup trunk shot. I'd be pissed if I was spending $94,000 with a paint job like that.

that black blue x6m looks very sweet!!!

i saw one at century west in white and i didnt like it...

I agree with a lot of people they put the M engine, m steering wheel, seats, and other bs and called an M...

I would love to see this car with bigger brakes...especially since it has 550hp...

The wheels are so nasty too, but look wide as hell in ur pik bro... proly 325+ in rear...

Anywho i would chose a cayenne GTS over this...THOSE LOOK SO SWEET
