I like the way the new headlights look! Looks pretty mean..
What i don't like though is the plastic chrome area around the foglights..

So let me get this right, we get a styling package and a modest 15-40 hp bump while the Europeans get Tri-Turbocharged diesels posing sub 6 sec 0-100kph times!?!?!

WTF NOT FAIR!!

Apparently, and to be honest I would love to see some more of the diesels here.

Better, but still not a fan...

Love the new headlights though, tragic the x5 didn't get them on its face-lift.

This called facelift?
I can barely see any changes
However, i do like the fact that it's going to be easy to swap the lights

Also they use less electricity, hence they would use less fuel (yes it would be very small gain but considering they are willing to sacrifice steering feel with electronic steering I would think they'd be using a little more up to date lighting technology).
Agreed and the same goes for the fogs as well. Doesnt the 6 series have LED fogs and LED turn signals? Doesnt make sense to me either.

It won't. The current X5 model already received its facelift/LCI.

I like the color but I think I would get sick of it after a year or so.

this doesn't look like much of a facelift, compared to what the X5 got for 2011 models.

I am actually a fan of the M Performance package, I wish they offered that on the X3 when I got it, 15 HP and 30 torque isn't huge but it makes you feel like you are actually getting some power lift out of a "M" package I wonder how much it will cost though (or should I say how much more than a normal M Sport Package). the X6 50i gets a 10% bump in power, thats pretty nice, puts less of a gap between it and the X6M.

Also I would much rather see all cars get the M Performance Package option rather than a full blown M Performance Line! Like the new 335i and 135i, give them a package like this with a 15-30 HP bump and charge a couple grand extra, but leave the badges as 335i and 135i, I don't want to see M335i and M135i on it. Think about the side emblem on these things: 35i xdrive M Performance

As seen on bmw.com, no new HUD which is now super outdated, fogs placement are a miss, that screw is visible from space, looks a bit better wth performance pckg as fogs then have black surroundings. 50d is a beast, am one of the few not liking alcantara, but to each his own.

Have you guys noticed the engine hood on the X6M LCI? It's the same hood that came on the X6 Hybrid.

Looks like they might be using different brakes on the M. Hopefully they don't squeak this time around! These small changes are awesome, means the resale value of the 2010 shouldn't take a nose dive
