Interesting. I guess there's an exception to every rule. This is the first time BMW is selling M Performance and regular models with the same engine designation. Though in reality these are two different versions of N63 (the G07 ordering guide has a typo) with a huge gap in performance.

I wonder if they just made too many N63Ms and needed to find a way to get rid of them...

And no, X6 won't be in the same situation. Its full intro lineup is xDrive30d (non-US), xDrive30i (non-US), xDrive40d (non-US), sDrive40i, xDrive40i, M50d (non-US), and M50i.
