From the pics, I'm liking the X6 more than the X5, but maybe I just need to see another angle.

Regardless of what critics have said in the past and may continue to say, I'm going to say it again...i believe these ///M vehicles make perfect sense. Regardless of the many times we would hear that "an M SUV does not fit the brand"...i believed if it ever made it beyond the Le Mans concept and to an actual business case, it would be received well, especially amongst performance SUV aficionado's and enthusiasts....A recipe for success. I predict their respective target demo will receive them well and will attract the attention of competitors consumers. Throw in "new technology" and all the better!

After my experience in an X6 50i...i can only imagine. Almost can't wait to read first drive reviews, including those of critics.

I see the M3 owners complaining the most that "the X Ms don't make sense".
To each his own.

hp * 0.746 = kw

Call it about 414 kw, but it may be slightly different when published as they use different rating standards in different countries.
