    X6M White/Champagne arrived

    my X6M finally arrived yesterday late evening. unortunately I was very busy today so only managed to drive it 10km but made some time for a few pics.

    Only thing I can confirm is that there is a big change in exhaust sound between normal mode and m dynamic mode. however, i did not rev beyond 4.500 rpm. when pushing the m button, the exhaust note changes instantly.

    i am very happy with the looks of the car. the wheels i had changed this morning and not sure if i prefer the black rims over the standard wheels. will see about that.

    although i have gone for the individual sound system i can't say it is too great. actually i hear no real difference over the premium system i had in my X6 50i.

    maybe what's sold in europe as individual audio system is the same as the american premium sound package ?

    more impressions after i have 'stepped on it' Smiley 

    is there any difference as to why i should adhere to break-in recommendation with the M over any of my porsches ? never stuck to the 2000km recommendation withe porsches and never had a single problem......

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    I hate you.   

    Do you have more photos of the wheels ?

    Thanks a lot and congratulations.  Beautiful car.

    Run-in is VERY important. Just try to keep it below 5000 rpm the first 2000 km and do NOT use the kickdown during this period.

    What about the M Driver's Package ? Can your dealer upload/activate it ? Did you get the DVD for it with your VIN ?

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    Congrats intouch, great looking car, inside and outside.

    Only thing I don't like are the black rims. Doesn't look right in contrast to the white body and in black they look too small IMO. But rims are the easiest thing to change.

    Drive safely and have fun!

    i have the M driver's package. bit received no cd with the car. i believe the car is already de-limited.

    attched is a picture of the spec/job sheet that came with the car.

    why do you recommend i should strictly adhere to break-in with the M ?

    all my cars i took it easy for the first 300-500 kmy and then gradually 'went for it'

    thanks rossi....i have the original M wheels too. i think the black wheels go well with the shadowline window framing.

     

    RC, i will take more pics for you of the wheels tomorrow or after.

    Stunning looking, as much for the interior then the exterior !!

    I like the balck rims, they go well with the rest of the car's colors !

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    Time for champagne... Looking very attractive but I would change the rims as well. I´d imagine a gunmetal colour, as on the 997.2 GT3, would be more appropriate for this car in this colour. Other than that, very nice!


    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    According to BMW M GmbH, there is no pre-installed M Driver's Package.

    The M Driver's Package comes on a DVD with the car, the VIN number of the car is on the DVD package.

    The M Driver's Package can only be activated by the dealer, using the DVD.

    It can only be activated after the 2000 km service, so there is no way to pre-install it.

    If the dealer pre-installed it accidentally, it has to be re-installed after the 2000 km service because it will NOT be active. The programming prohibits it.

    Talk to your dealer or the person who sold you the car. The DVD should be somewhere.

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    maybe it's country specific.

    will check with my dealer anyway and post the info here.

    RC, would be great if you elaborate more on break-in....

    the champagne interior looks drop-dead-gorgeous !! congrats on finally getting it, i'm sure the wait was killing you. i think the wheels look cool you just need a bit concontrast on them, but i thin that has to do a lot with having black calipers too, maybe you should consider getting them painted . please post more pics, white is one of the best colors for the X6M.

    It is not country specific, I asked. It has always to be installed after the 2000 km service. Before the 2000 km service, no M Driver's Package. Smiley

    Launch control should also not be available until the 2000 km service.

    The interior is really top notch, Range Rover-esque. Very nice vehicle. In fact with that interior quality it may surpass the RR in the luxury category.

    Fine american craftsmanship , a shot at an O/T thread.

    Looks good; I really like the interior colour. Are you going to tint the front windows? Might make the overall look a bit more sleek. Congrat's. Smiley

    Car looks stunning

    The interior is so fascinating! WOW!

    Safe trips and lots of fun with it!

    RC, i will have the 07ME info tomorow.

    the first service for the car is actually at 12000 km. unlike the M3 and M6.

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    RC, keen to hear more about the run-in procedure.  I have gone over 5000rpm maybe 5 times "by accident", but have been good so far in my first 800km.  And what do you mean by the kick down function?


    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    by kickdown BMW advises not to fully depress the accellerator and make the car shift down to lowest gear and provide full grunt.

    i also would like to know why RC advises we should really adhere to the break-in procedure. what's th diference between an M and any other turbo engine. Cayenne turbo comes to mind....

    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    GULP! That interior is jaw dropplingly beautfiul. Gratz on the car, looks fantastic :)


    Re: X6M White/Champagne arrived

    There is a reason why BMW recommends such a long break-in period. I would definetely stick to the recommendations until you reach 2000 km. After that, I would raise rpm/throttle/etc. slowly but steadily. I know that some people barely make 5000 km in a year but it shouldn't be too difficult to get 2000 km on your car. Just drive drive drive...

    The full 5000 km break-in would  be great but I doubt that somebody actually really does it.

    I'm pretty curious to hear the result. If it is already installed, then BMW M GmbH Germany is feeding crap to their customers about that 2000 km thing.
