What used BMW X6 4x4 will I get for my budget?
It’s possible to buy an early X6 from around £13,000, but it’s likely to be a high mileage affair. Up the dosh to between £15,000 and £17,000 and you’ll find good, average mileage for year 2008/2009 cars with a full service history, from an independent dealer. Between £18,000 and £20,000 will net you 2010 and 2011 cars with the same criteria, while £20,000 to £25,000 should get you late 2012 cars from franchised dealers.
How much does it cost to run a BMW X6 4x4?
Quite a lot. The 30d is the most economical version, with a claimed average fuel consumption of 47.1mpg, and the 40d a claimed 45.6mpg, but you won’t see anything like those figures in real-world use. Tax, annual vehicle excise duty (VED), will be high for all models.
Insurance groups range from a high 42 to a higher 47. Servicing will be expensive at BMW main dealers, but service plans are available to help spread the cost on the most recent versions of this generation. There are plenty of independent BMW specialists who will take on the work at a reduced cost over the main dealers.
