My decision exactly, even the dealer advised me not to order it for that reason. Now, if it was an X5, it would be a different story....

I'm not a big fan of the sunroof on X6 either, but i'd rather have this than not.
Sometimes i open it to get some fresh air, so i dont have to roll down the windows.
They do get wet or dusty a bit and i dont feel like opening them

BTW, your M50d is awsome!

With the dark headliner on the X6, the sunroof (coupled with my lighter colored seats) lets in enough light to not make the inside of the X6 feel like a coffin. I do however close it on hot days and can't imagine a car without it. Ohhh, actually I do own one without a sunroof and it is the one thing I can't stand about it.

Pretty cool that BMW lets you choose at least!

CONGRATS! While I'm jealous that you guys get to choose from all those options, I honestly don't know how you do it. SOOOOO many choices. That goodness BMW puts stuff in packages for us - otherwise I'd still be figuring out what options I wanted

X6 M50d

Hi All

Pick up went smooth as silk and the M50d is safe at home.

Done about 120 miles in it so far and I have to say it is such fun to drive.It has great torque and the engine sound inside the cabin is great.It is even louder than the V8 4.2FSI Audi Q7 I owned a few years ago.

I have taken pics but not sure how to upload them here.(I think I have to have more posts first)

Carbon Black is a beutiful colour.

I will keep trying with the pics

Congratulations! I'm also interested to see your car and thoughts on first impressions. The car is very rare at this early stage of its life cycle. I spotted one at the dealer a couple of weeks ago in CB with every single option on the list, it was sold by the time I viewed it(within a couple of days of coming into stock)which was disappointing especially as there was a substantial saving on list price and the car only had 300 miles on the clock!

Congratulations! Those wheels and LEDs are epic! Of course so is the engine I'll see if I can arrange a test drive, really curious about that engine. Enjoy your ride, you must have ordered it long time ago, takes time for this car to be shipped across Atlantic
