Welcome to the official X Series Register
BMW X vehicles are now a common sight on our roads. It’s hard to believe BMW’s first “X”, the X5, has been in production for so long – and what must be close to 1.5 million of us have bought new ones since manufacturing began in 1999. We are already onto BMW’s third generation of the X5 with the launch of the F15 in 2014.
BMW added to the “X” brand with the X3 in 2003, the X6 in 2008, the X1 in 2009, and the X4 in 2014. We should see the BMW X2 in the not too distant future, and if the rumours are true there will be luxury 7-seater X7 followed by a sporting variant (the X8) thereafter.
The X Register is for all “X” enthusiasts and caters for all X models from the X1 to the range-topping X5M and X6M. If you are an enthusiastic about your “X”, then we want to hear from you.
Talking of the X5M and the X6M, we are particularly interested in hearing from you if you own one given their global rarity. The X5M and X6M may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but these twin-turbocharged V8 monsters sport 555hp in E70/E71 guise, and 575hp in F15/F16 guise. We understand there are only about 150 of the X5Ms (E70) on our roads here in Britain, and approximately 100 of the X6Ms (E71). A future classic? Who knows?
Whilst this X Register will not necessarily offer ‘track day events’ given the nature of the “X” vehicles, we are encouraging as many “X” members attend various BMW Car Club GB events during each year. We have an emphasis on the annual National Festival in Gaydon and the wonderful annual Silverstone Classic. The Club’s “Welsh Weekend” is also another favourite.
