I ordered my replacement f16 is on order but hasn't started production yet and will have DHP...which I've read in multiple posts and reviews solves the suspension performance issue...?
If I compare the E71 X6 to the F16 X6, in my opinion, they are two very different ride feels. I've read that others are very happy going from E70 to F15. Not sure if it's an X5 vs X6 difference to begin with. I couldn't believe the difference when I went from E70 X5 to E71 X6. It was like going from an SUV to a 6 series that sat high up. It was amazingly nimble for such a big vehicle.

I'm sorry if my post sounded negative, I didn't mean to be a downer. you should be excited waiting on a new production. But I would suggest you find one with DHP to test drive to be sure. If you can't find one in dealer inventory, maybe you can see if there are any members in your area with DHP. I've made many friends here and found other members to be very helpful and accommodating.

I took a big hit and got out of a 36 month lease after 3 months all because I didn't test drive. You need to be sure before you shell out $14K. I really hope you find one to drive and you love it. Good luck.
