BMW X6 M.. few pictues, you may need some clean underwear

So my dream SUV came into the shop a few days ago, it just took the place of the Cayenne GTR. It's actually not really much of a SUV as much as a big station wagon type thing, but whatever it is it has a 555 hp twin turbo V8 w/ 500 ft. pounds of torque,, yaaahhhhh!!! and only $120g's haha.
It was in for some minor shipping damage, had like 30km's on it.. lol

I haven't driven the M,, yet! lol,, this is the first one I have seen.. I have driven regular X6's which are also super nice, and fast, so I can only imagine what these are like.
And ya, the rear window is absolutely useless but thats what the rear view camera and back up sensors are for. haha And it has horrible blind spots, if someone could actually keep up to be in your blind spot.

BMW M3 coupe is my dream car. Those cars are awesome!!! The first thing that caught my attention (of all things!), were the headlights. So cool.

Just a little scratch in the bumper most likely that the detailer polished out.
We did a 911 turbo last year that they were unloading at the train yard on the way to the dealership and did almost 20g's damage. Just looked like the front bumper but when we pulled it off they punched the intercooler, brake cooler, etc.. on a $200k car that builds up pretty quick! haha

A local guy here owns the same thing in black and an Alpine White E60 M5 (), he's always parked at our Police Station.

E60 M5 = My dream car/sedan.

His 5 wagon is the e39. I love the new E60 M5's tho, a little big for my taste but fun to drive!! We do allot of them! almost 500 hp rear wheel drive is too much car for most people who buy them.

BMW always said they would not make a high performance suv but I guess with the cayenne GTS and the AMG Mercedes ML's they needed something to compete.

I've never been a fan of suv's. To me, and this is just my opinion, they remind me of fancy mini vans! I hate mini vans! Give me a car or a truck. Or just give me an M3 coupe.

Thats the coolest part of my job, I get all of those through work as they get shipped to Vancouver Island. There's not a lot of exotic stuff I haven't driven, or different cars in general, and those X6 wagons have to be some of the worst - most of those SUVs are. The instruments and controls are a complete PITA to deal with (the first one in took me damn near 10 min to get moving, I am getting better with them now though). We have an MB ML62 AMG wagon in the yard right now, a few Bentleys, tons of MB and BMW sports cars, Corvettes (got to put a mint '65 283 4 spd on the boat the other day), 427 stage 1 Mustangs and all the other sorts (have had 1 King Cobra come through, I damn near punched a guy out to get that one.. ohhhh myyy goood! I'm not a big Mustang fan but they're getting pretty F'ing sweet). Tons more I can't remember, makes up for the billion Kia and other rental cars we get on a regular basis. Get tons of F350s and other diesels too which is what I really like to move around (I hate crunching into small cars). Got to pull a Viper off once too.

I've pulled a few SLK55s off the boat, one no one else was around (repo car) so I hammered on it and pulled off a 95 mph pass in the yard The dispatcher was trying to figure out what the hell the howl was that passed his office, he figure a low flying plane.. he was right! Done a few donuts in Pontiac G8s (or whatever the Aussie musclecar ones are), Mustangs, whatever else I can without getting caught.

Those are some pretty sweet rides your boss has dude. I'm a huge 3 series BMW fan, have always been one since my brother bought his first one 10 years back. So far he's on his 4th, a '97 Z3 Roadster with early 00's M driveline/suspension dropped in. Completely useless except for going fast! I've driven a couple V8 6 spd manual M3s off the boat, holy FCK they're sweet. Spun a 180 hard on one of the boats in one (purposely) and got away with it, told the deckhands the deck was slippery I love my job. LR

Same here, my job is super fun.... we do mainly all BMW, BENZ and Porsche, Land Rover, Jaguar and Lexus, some Audis and Volvo's because of the dealerships we deal with. But then we get some crazy stuff, Ferrari 430's, Murcileagos, Gallardo's, Maserati's, Bentleys (one in the back yard now with some corner (hood fender bumper) and 30g in parts alone. hahah. ) lotus esprit, BMW Z8, I am after working on and driving some craaaazy cars. We just fixed a SL 65 with 80g damage, the thing only had a few thousand km's on it. Ramped a curb and hit a tree. A CLS 550 came in a few days ago full of bullet holes, some drug dealer got shot in it.
I actually enjoy going to work (most days) haha

I used to run all over AB longhaul, it never ceased to amazing me the mount of exotic cars in and around Calgary.. even if the roads suck ***! Its funny watching some rich dude poke along 16 ave at 20 km/h in a brandnew Ferrari dodging potholes LR
