I love the chemistry between the two. They make it a very easy watch. It's a good balance of fun and seriousness.

Wait, the X6M rear taillights looks like The Rocks eyebrows?

Great car, but not a fan of the reviewers.

Already watched this, mainly just for the two of them. Always good stuff. I also love that half of performance vehicle reviews on YouTube come with the disclaimer that they couldn't get LC to work lol

BMW got it exactly right with X5MC. A rare accomplishment in today's world.

How dare you make someone justify their expensive purchase

Awesome car, but can't wait for that awesome three year depreciation curve to hit.

As to “too stiff ride”.....You can’t make everyone happy with one vehicle so we have degrees of how extreme of performance you can buy. SUV’s are by nature a compromise so I think that point gets lost when reviewing extreme performance SUV’s more than a traditional performance car.

I just don't think BMW can figure out the ride and handling balance as well as some other competitors like the Cayenne or new GLE63S. An air suspension would likely fix this, although I'm surprised BMW didn't use one for this vehicle.

These guys rarely say anything of substance. Throttle House guys are much more entertaining and knowledgeable in my book.

Still a nice watch just to see the car.

Throttle House and Savageese are probably my favorites on Youtube, and Smoking Tire can be good sometimes. TH for knowledgeable but also funny entertainment, and Geese for the in depth look and sarcastic humor. Jason Cammisa is also excellent for his no BS and controversial attitude.

I really enjoyed the original Top Gear crew and Motor Trend's youtube presence. In my opinion none of these new channels have been able to top the sheer entertainment value of those programmes.

With that being said, the demise of those is what led to so much new Youtube content, so it's not all bad.

I also prefer the X5M over the X6Ms overall shape but I like the X6M front end just a tad more
