sgCarMart – The plain Jane X6 was only released for sale to the world some time in mid 2008 and it wasn't until last year in 2012 when the Bavarian marque unveiled the new high performance M50d to go head on with Audi S cars.
While it may come as a surprise to many that the M Brand - known for being the pinnacle of performance in BMW's bloodline and one defined by racetrack ready cars - will come up with diesel-powered performance cars, we can't deny that dipping its toe in the unknown water was the next best thing to do.
To the uninitiated, the difference between M and M Performance can be tricky, considering the cars bear similar red and blue badges and each features the powerful and popular moniker on its sheet metal.
To put it out there, a proper M car like the M3 or the M5 are essentially sizzling hot, thoroughbred twisted Bavarian bruisers that go against the likes of Audi RS and Mercedes-Benz AMG. M Performance cars, on the other hand, are basically sub-sectored cars that are right smacked in between regular BMW cars and M cars.
But they're certainly no halfway-house if you ask us.
