Where the wild things are

Of course, this probably means that right now there's an engineer in Germany either cracking a sly grin, or pushing two sharpened HB pencils up his nose prior to banging his head on his desk. An X6 wasn't supposed to have a roofrack loaded with spare wheels, jerry cans and tools. It wasn't supposed to have off-road tyres, ropes slung casually across it, or dinner-plate Hellas. It wasn't supposed to off-road, in a place where recovery is virtually impossible, in the company of people whose professional preparation amounts to bringing a coat. But sod comfort zones. Safe, yes. Unlikely to get you into a situation in which you get eaten, yes. But dull. So we've taken the terribly urban SAV that is the X6 right out into Europe's largest wilderness. Where the wolves and the wild things are.
