G06- Up Close LED Kidney Grill Inserts

Should be interesting how it looks at night; if the LEDs operate during the day.

The LED's are located in the grill slots. It was mentioned a few months ago by an insider the X6 would come to market with these type of lights. Just the detail hasn't been captured before in photographs.

Only the front view was available.

This is the rear of the upcoming X6M, notice the roof line flaps.

Why? Because the X5 isn't pimp enough, apparently.

Just wait until they add the undercarriage neon.

Well, that's an X6M so maybe only the ///M vehicles will go full 'ricer'

Meh. Is this BMW’s answer to MB lighted star? I get enough gas station attention at night with the current carpet/door lights.

I believe the X6 is has the LED's, as the X6M will have the open double slit front grill (S63 requires more air that B58/N63). M vehicles never have the active front grill.

The exhaust indicates at least an M50i, but since its protruding, that's more akin to the X6M

To clarify the attached photos are of TWO different vehicles, as both the X6 and X6M are currently undergoing winter testing in Arjeplog. The 2nd photo is the X6M (quad exhaust).

Its just the OEM pathway lights and M door projectors matching the oem M lighted sills. Are you seeing the reflection from the pathway lights on the side of the X5?
