Since i bought my T1 just a year ago. Covid and an extended return trip across europe has meant this car has dominated my motoring life. Prepping it for life in Greece hasn't been cheap, many little mods along the way have mostly been fun and it really is time to get it exported now  B)

That means my principal ride will resurface. Maybe not a popular car in these parts but I've owned BMWs since the 90s and i like them. I bought my X6 as probably my last ever purchase (T1 aside). At my age i'll likely not need another car in my remaining lifetime. This was a one owner car when i bought it with lots of toys, digital radio/TV, HUD, comfort seats, soft close doors, keyless, and so very much more. Barely 27k miles on it then, and only 33k now. Its a four seater, the better option imo. The boot is quite big but the 'coupe' roofline is a love or hate feature.

Its been mothballed for sometime now, i'm looking forward to reacquainting myself with it, when circumstances allow. All the silver/chrome trim has long since been swapped to black. Its quite stealthy with matt black wheels. I rather like it, in a completely different way to the Touareg.

Unusual choice from the original owner, semi exotic, so called "Chateau" leather.

Just a dusty red shade as i see it.
