so the "performance" package is completely cosmetic and no performance or power enhancements?

Lame...


but it does look good.

All these recent M "performance" packages are more aptly named as "ricer" kits

Only the recent "performance edition retrofit kit" tunes really qualify as being substantial at all, and on non-M's, egads

Those headlights look different than the standard X6's headlights. It isn't the LCI, so why?

Those are standard X6 headlights.

On a different note, what's what the flat bottomed steering wheel? Are people really going to track this truck?

I like the aero parts, but I feel like the performance steering wheel is just completely useless on a car like this...

The X6 got so much beating when it arrived at the scene, but the sales figures speaks for itself, and now this, it looks sick, minus the rear CF spoiler imo.
Love the colour on it, reminds me of Hellrot.
An pretty old colour, or is it Imola?

not a fan. the front splitter seems too small as if it was for a 3 series and fitted on the 6. same goes for the rear wing. just my thoughts.
with their design team, i'm sure there could have been much more appealing products

Quite a few members here do
I'm sure good amount of X6s are seeing tracks

Nothing's wrong with having some fun in a very capable machine
