    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    Great looking car, and indeed the interior is fantastic! 


    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    RC, as stated befor, I nver adhered to breakin on any of my Porsches. took it easy for 500km and then always steadily increased. NEVER had the slightest problem.

    why would it be any different for the M cars ?

    going for a little spin now and will take the wheel pics you requested.....

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    Thanks for the photos, Sherif. I really appreciate it. 

    I was thinking of getting the black painted 21'' rims for my X5 M but I think I'm going to stick with the M 300 wheels I ordered (the same you removed from your X6). On the sporty X6, the black 21'' rims look great but I'm not sure about the less sporty looking X5.

    Regarding break-in: I wish I could tell you more but I still think that BMW has a reason for asking for such a long break-in period. It may not even have to do with the engine alone but with the drive train and everything connected to it.

    Like I said, I'm going to be very anal about the break-in the first 2000 km and after that, I 'm going to raise the rpm/speed little by little. I doubt that I can do a proper 5000 km break-in, this is really insane. 5000 km...some people need one year for this.

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

     

    you're most welcome RC. any more pics you need just let me know.

    as for the wheels, i too find them rather aggressive. when taking the pics for you, i noticed that the standard whels ar polishd spokes and grey-ish bed. i might put them back on for a week and then finally decide which ones to settle for.

    ride quality is surprisingly good on th 21's. while the black wheels certainly looked better on th 50i with th alu side skirt, i am not 100% sold on the black wheels with the M. willattach a pic on the bottom.

    as for break-in, i am now at 300 km's. i sold my X6 50i after 1 year ownership with only 3000 km's on the tach and i am in no way willing to baby the M for so long.

    so far I have not touched 5k rpm nor used kickdown. i have however, accelerated away from almost stand-still to 4.5k rpm pushing quit a bit without using kick-down.

    whn ltting off th gas the exhaust burbles and gargles rather nicely. i belíeve there is more to b had when really stepping on it.

    anyways, i decided that i will continue to baby it until 500 km and then steadily increase things to be at max by the time i reach about 700 km.

    i broke in the 50i rather hard with no issues at all. no oil used, no smoke no noises nothing. just all around good performance.

     

    pic of black wheels on 50i: the black wheel wells and side skirt work well with the wheels.

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    Now I understand why you ordered a white X6 M. Did somebody in your surrounding actually get it that you have a new car ?  

    I know it is tough to stay away from the throttle but c'mon, you can do it. At least try to reach 1000 km before you push it harder. Every km more should count.

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    that was exactly my intention....those that will not meet me with envy get told that it's a new car while all the rest can think what they bloody feel like thinking

    and those that notice without me telling them propably think that i am a nutcase....which is fine by me

    will try to wait until 1000 km's....but no promises made !

    it would be far easier not to throttle it if i'd have driven a demo car like you  i just want to find out what the car can and can't do !

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    I may not feel much faster than the X6 50i but trust me, it is bloody fast.

    Btw: make sure you have MDM/Sport active when driving fast, it provides a completely different driving experience. Don't turn DSC off, it is still a good safety net.
