2015 BMW X6 now available with M Performance parts

December 8, 2014

If the standard BMW X6 isn’t sporty enough for you, even with its slopping roofline, the company has just announced an array of M Performance accessories that you can opt for.

BMW M Performance is the German company’s accessories division inspired by M cars. For the X6 the sub-brand has developed a unique styling package with a carbon fibre front splitter, carbon rear spoiler and diffuser, and carbon side mirrors.

To match the dark carbon items, there’s also a high gloss black trim package which includes black detailing around the windows, front grilles, and some bespoke pinstripes along the contour lines of the doors. A set of 21-inch alloy wheels finish off the look with dark inner spokes.

It’s not all about cosmetics though. M Performance offers engine tune ups too, like an aftermarket computer tune. For the xDrive30d power can be lifted from 190kW to 204kW, while torque is boosted from 560Nm to 585Nm. As a result, 0-100km/h is achieved in 7.3 seconds (0.2 seconds quicker).

If diesel isn’t really your thing there’s also a tune for the xDrive35i which comes with the sweet 3.0-litre inline six turbo. Power can be lifted from 225kW to 240kW, while torque is increased from 400Nm to 450Nm. Acceleration times are improved by 0.5 seconds, clocking the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.2 seconds.

Buyers can personalise the interior as well with a range of M Performance trim options, such as a sporty three-spoke Alcantara steering wheel, special sill plates that light up, and new decorative carbon fibre highlights for the dash, gear level and centre console.
