Recently, BMW have been getting plenty of criticism on the way they keep expanding their product lineup in a way that seems to make a car for everybody who’d be interesting in buying.
In some cases that’s true and it seems that things are getting worse. That direction seems to have spun off with tuner cars built around the same idea…
Senner Tuning have a package for the BMW X6 diesel, the xDrive40d version that seems to be in a very narrow market spot.
Here’s the outset, you want a faster version of the BMW X6 but you still want the inherent fuel economy of a diesel you can always buy the X6 M Performance.
Trouble is, that new tri-turbo seemingly too complicated engine isn’t really cheap. In fact, it’s so expensive it’s only marginally cheaper than the BMW X6M.
Senner Tuning provides a 10 percent increase in the performance of the 3.0 liter straight six cylinder engine without too much damage to the fuel economy.
Having 336 horsepower and 490 lb-ft of torque under the bonnet will certainly make a difference. Just like the new design kit will.
Essentially, Senner Tuning provides a rip-off BMW X6 M lower body kit, a couple of subtle rear spoilers and a set of awesome 22 inch multi-spoke alloys from Hamann.
Really, it’s hard to fault the package, especially when you consider only costs some 35.000 dollars. It’s definitely not cheap but it’s certainly not as expensive as the M Performance version.
Also, since most of the parts are off-the-shelf BMW ones, maintenance and repairs shouldn’t put a dent in the budget either.
