Know your BMW.

While owning my 2012 X6 M. I've gained a lot of knowledge.
1st the M version has the S63 motor, not be N63.
2nd because it's the S63. the oil I use is a synthetic German oil Liqui Moly, 10-60w. I live in North Carolina the weather is warm here most of the time. if I were in a colder climate I probably wouldn't use such a thick
weight. many people would argue that I should use 5-30w which is standard for other BMW But this is an S63 motor. the vehicle should come with a supplemental user's manual which may describe how to take care of the S63.
You'll want to change the coolant hoses around the turbos. the turbos are covered to keep a lot of heat away but the hoses that are nearest the turbos should be replaced. very easy to change.
other than that I so enjoy the car it is an ultimate driving machine.
