F10 535i vs 2009 X6 50i

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I am hoping you guys can give me some pointers on a possible move.

Had a 2011 535i for the last year. Fully equipped minus the sport package. Picked up this car for it's interior comfort and drive ability. The original plan was to have this for 2-3 years them move to a x6.

Car is space grey and the wife has always wanted a different color. So with taxes and bonus coming up we are considering a gloss white wrap and tires are about done so switching to some new wheels and non run flat tires (they suck haha)

Wife was looking around on the internets and found an 09 x6 50ix with 41k on the clock. We both really love the car but it's got the N63 4.4 and I have always heard that they are trouble. Can anyone speak in depth about such a swap.

The big advantage I am seeing is I would pick up about 6k in collateral value by swapping my 5 for the x6.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I had a N63 in a 550i and didn't have one issue with it. However it wasn't high mileage when it was turned back in.

Is the X6 CPO? Do you have the service history? Is there any mom/pops shops in your area?

"N63 Customer Care Package"...I'm guessing this will scare you away from that X6. If not, good luck with your car purchase.

The vehicle is a CPO. It has 67k right now. The warranty runs out 8-31-15 or 100k. I attached the service history below. I know of a mom and pops bmw shop about 30 miles away but I have never used them. I have 2 years/22k miles of extended warranty left on my 535i. I would prefer to not have a vehicle that likes service. Thanks for all the advice.

Edit: I spoke with the dealership today and they have not checked the car out yet per the n63 bulletin. If they replace the timing chain/injectors/hpfp I wouldn't be upset with new parts. Haha

This X6 clearly likes service, and not the routine kind.

If they do the bulletin mentioned above, I would say everything would be up to par as best it could be. An if anything went wrong you would have some warranty coverage.

However, I do agree with a poster above.. That car has had some issues, be it a bad service department that wants to squeeze BMW for every dime or a lemon.


How long do you plan on keeping the car? What's the price?

I would pass on this X6.
- It's soon to be out of Warranty
- An it's current history shows its needed lots of service.
1) Either they prior owners drove it like a dirty whore
2) Its a lemon/BuyBack

- However, what else could go wrong? Would be the question if you decided to buy.
