Thanks Tizy for sharing with us...the car looks amazing with the body kit. I still think that the front bumper looks more sleeker and refined than the one on X6M. I already contacted my dealer and they have one on order for me and I should receive it sometime next month. Please give us a review about the car once your done with the test drive. Cheers

agreed the front bumper looks great, not sure if I like the sides and rear so much tho...I would love to see how just the front bumper would look with non-aero/stock sides/running boards and stock rear...

Is the front bumper a fit on all X6? Can you tell me how much they are charging for the front bumper at the dealer? Does it include paint and install? Thank you.

Yup...the front bumper fits all versions of the X6. As for pricing, they haven't give me any details yet, but they told me it's arriving sometime during June. I'm not sure, however, if they would only sell the front bumper because as far as i know it comes in a whole package that includes front bumper, side sills, and rear bumper insert. Regarding the paint, i'm sure it's not pre-painted, they do the paint job at the dealer, but still not sure if it's included in the price of the package. Anyway, I've already decided to install the package before even knowing the price...that's how much I really like the new look . Judging from these pics, the X6 looks more elegant and sporty.

I'm trying to see what is different in the rear besides the spoiler? I have aluminum running boards currently, how does the side sills differ? Anyone know?

It's obvious...from the pics above, look at the body painted part under the rear bumper, the middle lower part gets replaced by a new one. Compare that to a regular x6 and you'll notice the difference. As for the running boards, these has to be replaced as well by a new part. I already find these running board useless and I ordered them mainly for looks.

Anyone know if there is an X5 performance? Would love to see how this looks as the X6 looks gorgeous.

so a 35i performance kit gets 50i exhaust tips?

I am sure you can just order the front bumper alone, once available.....all m sport kits have that option as well...however I doubt you'd be able to order just the front bumper on a new purchase order, it would have to be done via retrofit/aftermarket

Yes, X5 Performance will be out in July.





The exhaust tips on this exact car are not Performance parts. This part was still not available when this car has been built. (will be out this summer)

I can´t really say anything about power because this car is brand new with few miles on it and I can´t really push it too hard

Do you notice the difference between the exhaust tips in both pics? The second pic is from Geneva Autoshow last month...it's 35i with performance exhaust installed. See how the tips look thinner on the outer edges and has a darker metallic color compare to Tizy's X6, which looks exactly the same stock exhaust on the 50i. That makes me wonder if Tizy's X6 is actually a 50i and not 35i. Otherwise, I'm not sure...what do you think?

as I said it´s 35i with stock tips from 50i to look better (it would look bad with stock 35i´s tips). The Performance tips haven´t been available yet. X6 from Geneve is with real Performance tips.
