    What does this car say about you?

    The car is a head turner especially in white with black trim and as I spend most of my time in Portugal there is not many X6s around.So its nice to have something different.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They all admire the car, however I do understand the 'Marmite Car' philosophy you either love it or hate it!

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes I would buy the X6 again, originally I was looking for the XDrive 40D but ended up with the 30D which is more than capable of satisfying my requirements.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Having had Mercedes, Jaguars, Porsche etc.I would be more than happy to buy another BMW.
