For those not familiar with BMW Performance, its a new range of products in the BMW lineup meant to compete with the aftermarket and offer sporty upgrades to the standard range of BMW cars. The products are supposed to bridge the gap between stock car and ///M car.

  • xDrive35i: 0-60: 6.5s
  • Sport Exhaust system
Aerodynamic Kit
  • Front bumper
  • Side-sills
  • Insert for the rear bumper
  • All finished in body colour
  • Optional: rear spoiler, rear fins in matt black and a front grid finished in high-gloss black paint
Wheels
  • 21x10 Front on 285/35 R21 tires and 21x11.5 on 325/30 R21 at the rear.

Looks nice! Any mention of whether or not these cars (specifically the 35i) will have the overboost function? If not I suppose that part of the software is is-exclusive.

Very good looking X6 I'm curious about a pic with the rims... and of course, with the front of the car...
These performance parts are developed by bmw to create a much sportier looking/ performing car due to the new cayenne release

More is better!

Much more is therefore much better !
Gear up for more options !
I used to be one of the few in '08/'09, but now I'm seeing more x6's out there everyday.
BMW is probably (like Porsche w/ the Cayenne), rolling in dough from one of their more profitable vehicles.

The suspension on xdrive cars is set up different, even in different materials. As you might have realized, they do not offer a sport suspension upgrade for the X6 either, so what is your complaint?

WOW! That looks great! The exterior pieces look really good together ... I'd have to see it in person but from the pic I think you have to buy the whole Aerodynamic Kit for a complete finished look ... just the trunk spoiler or just the side sills by themselves might look silly. And like others mentioned, I am sure these parts are going to cost serious $$$$$. But I am glad BMW is offering thing like this for the X6 ... pretty cool!

obviously. this i understand. but you cant tell me that there are really more people out there that are willing to spend the money and put all this aerodynamic crap on [a car that isnt aerodynamic at all], then there are are people who are willing to upgrade the suspension on Xdrive cars.

since there isnt an available sport suspension, a performance suspension would be flying off the shelves.

my complaint is, as it usually is from others, they simply do not know their audience.

Finally...great news. We just need more pics from the front. I think it's a smart move from BMW to offer these perfromance equipement because there's a demand for aftermarket tunes, plus it's a good opportunity to make money after sale. I agree it can be expensive, but just like any other accessories, it give people more choices to customize their cars and tune them without having to void any warranties.
