And these are the common Y spoke rims BMW India offers.

The above mentioned rims are different and I have never seen that on an X5/6 in India till date. May be they offer it as standard abroad and more importantly none of the brands I believe will do the foolishness of offering those 20+' rims as a standard fitment for the Indian market unless the buyer ticks the box. Just FYI

They are offered. Our X6 (that we were using) had these same rims. And the car was NOT the diesel. It was the mighty petrol.

Sorry for being pedantic Cy, are you using the X6 in the UK or India?

If they indeed offer these rims as standard fitment in India, I am nothing less than shocked by BMWs bravery of offering Run Flats + 22' rims which will never impress a person who is buying the car for its ride comfort.

Saw a white Jaguar XF-S yesterday on my way back from work. Rode behind it all the way from Madivala till Forum after which he turned right towards Koramangala. Couldnt take any pics due to traffic and rain showers.
