Large air intakes at the front, side gills, M badges, M-specific exterior mirrors in twin-stalk style and M-spec quad tailpipe exhaust system kick up the looks department a couple of notches. The BMW X6 M comes with a rear spoiler as well. M-spec 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels wrap up the package on both cars. Interiors feature Merino full-leather trim and M multifunction seats.
