I heard they were only going to be making it in left hand drive but I can't see that being likely given the UKs current love of anything diesel.

BMW have just announced the X5 M50d and X6 M50d on my facebook page.

The badge looks like it belongs in the clownage section!!!

381bhp and 740nm torque

Looks like the uk is getting the x6 and x5 but not the m550d

Something is wrong when there is a market in the uk for the x6 but not e.g. the 550d touring. Toss.
