I envy his position. I would literally do anything to be a chief designer or a design overseer at BMW. It'd be my dream job.

Btw, the car looks a bit stumpier and fatter in this vid. I loved it in the concept press photos, but something about this looks wrong. Usually the designs grow on me, but this...this one's different.

I like the look a lot. In fact, this might be the first gen that I didn't have to "warm up" to.

Everytime I see a side profile of the X6, I think...wow BMW has tried to do their own version of the Pontiac Aztec.

Looks kinda weird in the video of the grey one. The rear end looks too big and out of place. In the pictures, it looks fine though. Weird.

LOL I felt the exact same way when I first saw the X6. It looks like a more aggressive looking Aztec..like it's mixed with the Benz CLS for the smaller windows for the 'sporty' feel.

I think she was moving out of the way so they could see the front fascia as he described all the air intakes.

Either that or bangle had some nasty breath.

It doesn't look as good as the concept which had frameless windows.

Look at the sideview in the desert in the video.
this cars rearend is NOT NICE.
But - i did not like any of the X.
They only did the x-series course they got modern in other companies.
A puffed up E90 - no. For that purpose i still got the nr. 1. The Touareg.
Its also the most sold 4wD in Denmark. Mb course we need them in real life.
