I like Jacob and Yuri's reviews.

Although an unpopular opinion, I disagree with their characterizations of a typical X6M driver

How can anyone complain about the G80 when the back end of this thing is running around town?!

I love the rear lights on the F86, and hell, I even ordered an F98!

spuntyb, I'll make a bold prediction . Within the next 18 months, you will get rid your M5 lease and pick up a G80.

Yuri is just way too annoying. I try to give them a shot every now and then, but can't make it through to the end. I much much prefer Thomas and James from Throttle House.

Too true. These things are no joke!

The X6 has super fussy styling. I hated it in pics and still dislike the base models.

But....when I see a loaded up X6 or X6M I get excited. It looks sharp and snobby AF. Love it.

At 8:19 they press the exhaust button thinking it disables ASD? I thought that button opens or closes flaps and ASD needs to be coded out entirely.

Let's see what's going on here
* The Straightpipes guys are OK but they force their opinion on the viewer hard
* SP has some reviews and conclusions that mostly I disagree with
* Throttle House is more funny and better
* In this case, I traded my X5 for an X6 and never looked back. X5s are everywhere. X6s are harder to photo, they look better in real life

X5 remains the more attractive sibling by a wide margin.

I was one of those that thought the X6/X6M was hideous when it first came out but once I saw it on person a few times it really has grown on me. Its fire once it has a drop too.

imo X5Ms are very common and practical grocery/baby/pet carrying machines. Nothing wrong with that; though, I prefer the impracticality and looks of the x6m (especially after some tasteful mods).
