But you wouldn't need two because you can only drive one at a time. I'm not talking about price, I just like the Cayenne Turbo a little better.

Re: SUV Alternatives to the WK2 SRT8 Jeep?

BMW X6 50i in my opinion is a great deal and almost as quick as the WKII SRT8.....the advertised times anyways. Of course that car is love it or hate it....I personally think it looks great.

It is only a few thousand more, but you get twice the warranty period and free maintenance.

WTF Car? Awards: BMW X6

Posted by The Insiderat 11:40 am on Friday January 23, 2009
Winner of the Question No One Asked Award…
You have to hand it to BMW. Just as the world is collectively made redundant, the world economy decides to commit very public suicide and everyone suddenly decides to pay forensic attention to C02 emissions, they launch the X6; an SAV that defines the notion of conspicuous consumption.
It only seats four, looks like someone shot a 6-series full of bull testosterone and then made it balance on rollerskates, and has the subtlety of Keith Chegwin off his face on cocaine.
The plaudits don’t stop there though – the X6 is remarkable to drive on road, thanks to its utter inability off it – despite the rugged looks. It does precisely nothing that any other BMW car in the range doesn’t do better – as if the people planning the car have not looked up from their welding long enough to ask the question: ‘who the hell are we building this thing for anyway?’
Let’s face it, if the X6 were a person, it would be the city banker whose hobby was kicking tramps to death in handmade brogues – it is two fingers to the credit crunch, practicality, the environment, poor people and rationality. If it were the 1980s, BMW would be laughing. But it isn’t, and as a result, nobody on planet earth gets the joke.

The car that no one asked for and no one can figure out what it is. Maybe it was a Bangle flashback.......

Just because something is fast does not make it good. What exactly can the X6-M do that the X5-M can't (or the M3 sedan for that matter)? What it can't do is haul as much gear, seat tall people in the back seat or tow anything. No one that I've talked to or articles that I have read have been able to understand exactly what "niche" BMW thinks this vehicle fills.

No sane person would chose an X6 over an X5. End of story.
