Default Delivery of my X6 at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, SC

So I finally picked up my X6 (2011 xDrive 35i)!

Overall, I had a great time in Spartanburg. The X5/X6 manufacturing plant is incredible (they don't let you take any pictures though ) and all the people I encountered over the course of my stay were very nice.

So far the car is awesome and I love the color combo (thanks to those of you that pushed me towards bamboo trim). Break-in is almost done thanks to the 800+ mile trip back to NY.

Also, if any of you are considering a PCD, I can highly recommend my Client Advisor, Kevin Mellett, at Passport BMW in MD (240-695-5580). He was great throughout the entire ordering process and the pricing was VERY aggressive. If you give him a call, just say that Alex with the X6 referred you.

Here are some pictures of the car and the Performance Center Delivery ...

An X5 on the off-road course ... this was really fun!

Nice pictures, sounds like you had a great time. Always a great experience to take delivery of your vehicle straight from factory, especially when you get to beat on similar vehicles that aren't yours beforehand.

Definitely! My car only had 1.3 miles on it ... and the X6M was tons of fun. The instructiors were telling me how they had one at One Lap of America (I think) and it came in 17th (or something like that) ahead of a bunch of Porsche's and Ferrari's.

A lot of people have that reaction. The car gets a lot of attention ... people kept on staring at it when I was on the interstates heading back to NY.

Thanks! ... The road course was great ... You get to drive a car similar to the one you were taking delivery of, so I had the X6M. I would have liked more time driving it, especially on the road course (by the time you start to get comfortable, the time was up) but it was a ton of fun. A lot of the exercises (breaking (in the X6M) and the skidpad (in a 335i)) were to demonstrate BMW's safety technology (ABS, DSC, etc.) ... I would have prefered a drifting competition.

But I would definitely try to get down there whenever you have some time. It is a place any BMW fan should visit at some point or another.
