For model year 2013 the X6 M is receiving a simple but significant refresh update to its look. Images have been few and far between of the über sports activity coupe ‘ but we have some exclusive live shots of it in action. What has changed? The X6 M will now feature LED lit corona rings in new headlights, new tail lights and a “power dome ” added to its hood from the ActiveHybrid X6.

There is little else notable for this Life Cycle Impulse, but those few changes make it appear more aggressive and modern which can only be viewed as good things.

Also new, but less obvious on the outside are blue brake calipers with the M logo. On the inside, the US will see the M multi-contour seats standard and Mugello Red Full Merino leather replaces Sakhir Orange Full Merino leather.
