First Photo's- F16 X6 M50d-With Full M Performance Parts

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Here are the first real life photos of the F16 X6 M50d with full M Performance Parts.

The big catch here.....The first BMW sourced fixed caliper 4 piston brakes on any BMW X vehicle. Excluding/Not counting the full on "M" vehicles. I've never seen BMW supplied Big Brakes for any X vehicle until this car. Many Aftermarket options...but nothing you could buy from BMW. Lot's of Carbon Fiber bits on the F16 X6 M50d. I don't care for the Shoulder line pin stripe. Thanks. PalBay

Looks great, though perched up on rocks is not the look for this car.

My usual question on everything produced by BMW in the US hereafter: are the rear turn signals amber or red?

Thanks for the pictures.
It looks great, but for all that money I'd rather get M5 or just normal X6 with M-Sport package if looks is where it counts. I just don't see where all that torque can be utilized? Towing? Maybe.. But no way I'd put this vehicle on a track or try to go wild on a highway. There must still be a small market for these things.

Amber on these outside the U.S.

I basically have all of this on my truck including the brakes. Nice to see BMW making them available to a wider range of vehicles.

You have more than that! Yours is the gold standard.

Nice car, shame they can't park it properly.

Its not really an SUV though is it...its so low to the ground its more like the 5 Series Gran Turismo.

Not feeling it at all. Then again, I'm not feeling the X6 as a package either, so to each their own...

The F15 X6 is so much better than the E71. That front fascia is such an improvement.

As opposed to X5, I prefer X6 in light colors. It really brings out great contrast with bumper diffuser and front fascia. The body itself isn't as bulky as X5 either, so any light color will look amazing on the new x6.

I love the X6 M. Ironically this will be the last time this vehicle drives over some small stones. :

I agree!

What is up with the poorly placed sharp rocks?

Other wise it looks cool, I love the X6M, but I would go for an X4M strictly do a more compact size and price tag.

Don't like the fake side gills, and what is up with the CF rear window sticky bits?Unnecessary.

I hate when BMW can't address things that even Audi can. And I'm saying this because I hate Audi as a brand. I am talking about the wheel arches. They seem unfinished and non premium at all. Now that's why I can't or won't buy white BMW suvs despite loving the color. Shame! We're in 2014!! ?? Or are we? Please BMW, solve this mess once and for all. Learn form Audi this time. I hate to say this!!

Look at the comparison w or w/o white stripes and silly buttons (buttons? really?) below:

Is placing this on rocks suppose to imply some off road credentials? I wouldn't take this off-road or get one over a normal car.

Agreed, they seam unrefined and they could bulge out more for a more aggressive look. But still I am a big fan of the Sport Activity Coupe! I love the M3s & the M4 but grew up driving wagons so this is a cool marriage of the two.

Jesus dude. Take a chill pill. Of the whole car you choose the inner wheel arches to criticize? Clearly you need to upgrade to a Rolls if this is your standard of excellence.

the display is just ironic for a car that can't go off road to begin with and with some performance parts on it which makes it even more not offroadable
