  • 2009 BMW X6

    Just weeks after the unveiling of the new M-Sport package for the new 7-series saloon comes news that BMW will be releasing a similar range of upgrades for its sporty X6 crossover as well as some power mods. The X6 xDrive35d and xDrive50i will be gifted with a few extra horsepower, with the 306hp (225kW) turbodiesel six-cylinder of the recently-launched 740d being transplanted into the xDrive35d and the twin-turbocharged V8 of the xDrive50i getting boosted to 442hp (330kW). That puts the xDrive35d M-Sport 20hp (15kW) ahead of the regular model, while the xDrive50i with the M Sport package...

    Hartge takes the diesel X6 to new highs - and lows

    Style is undoubtedly a subjective thing, but sometimes agreement is nearly universal. The Mona Lisa has been revered through the ages, while the bowl-cut hair style is a perpetual laughing stock.

    Report: BMW’s M division moving to four and six-cylinder turbos

    BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer recently revealed plans to phase out diesel V8 engines across the board, but as drastic as this sounds it could be just the tip of the iceberg for the carmaker’s future plans to shakeup its powertrain lineup. BMW’s hallowed M division could also be affected by...

    Lumma Design to show CLR X 650 GT at Geneva Motor Show

    Sometimes more isn't a good thing, and that's often the case with aftermarket mods. Even BMW's own factory designs have come under fire for adding needless elements - the recently-released 5-series Gran Turismo being a prime example.

    BMW X6 White Shark upgrade package by MCCHIP

    BMW's X6 has seemed to many observers - fans and foes alike - to be something of a car without a home. Not quite a sedan, and not quite an SUV, the X6 blends genres in a way that defies description. Now that MCCHIP has had its way with it, however, the X6, at least in 'White Shark' guise, is much...
