Pros

Love the power, engineering and convertible top.

Cons

I'm 6'5 with long legs so I have to lean the seat back.

Love At First Site! — A great car with performance, power and style. When you let down the convertible, turn on the music and ride down the highway with you music playing, there is no better feeling. It is definitely a head turner when you pull up to a light.

Impressive — BMW's 6 series convertible monster produce 360HP and 360lb-torque. Amazing handling, steering wheel and gear ratio. Unique Head-up Display menu and night vision give you better control on night drives. Only missing thing about this car is rear sitting space.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Honest Opinion — I've always wanted to own a 6 series. After test driving one, I was sold. I couldn't believe how well it drove and how quick it was off the line. Gas mileage was great on it for a sports coupe. I normally got around 430 miles in the city on a tank of gas.

Pros

fast, smooth, quiet, and handles like on rails.  This car gobbles up highway miles on road trips with complete ease.  Makes you not want to drive anything else when traveling.  Cruising at 90 mph the car isn't even into it's zone yet.  Amazing!

Cons

Other than the initial purchase price, which is always painful on a BMW the car serves it's purpose as a weekend drive and occasional road trip car very well.  No other complaints.  It was purpose built and purpose bought.

Excellent Road Going Machine — The whole package is nice. It does everything well. Being a ragtop you'd think it might be noisy, but it's so, so quiet it baffled me every time I drove it. The engine is very torquey with a nice rumble and on the highway it's like you're riding on air, but it turns so flat in corners it makes you wonder what else is possible with newer technology. The top takes 18 seconds to deploy, I wish it were faster but that's pretty good overall. Maintenance wasn't ridiculous. I've owned several BMW's and it wasn't any more for this car than my M3, 530i, or X5. Service intervals are few when the car isn't a daily driver though.

A great handling SUV

Ultimate Driving Machine. — BMW is the ultimate driving machine. This SUV drives like any other BMW. Handles great. The steering wheel is responsive and it has great acceleration for a SUV. The storage area in the back could be a little bigger, but it's small SUV. This is normal.

Perfect Car To 'show Off' In, Not Powerful Though, Not Tech Happy About The Car. — Car was nice, run flats get expensive after time....power was consistent, loved the steering wheel warmer and the climate control options... the convertible top had 1 issue with it, but was fixed under warranty... better that the car was in California, so top could be down often... loved the transmission and Manual / sport settings. GPS sucked though.

Great Car — Amazing to drive. Sticks to the rode without feeling like the car will slip and there's always power when you need it, maybe more than enough. Like every BMW the brakes stop on a dime and if youre not carfull you will be jolted to the front of the car from the force of the brakes. The same can be said for stepping on the gas. With pressing the pedal even halfway, the car throws you back in the seat and takes off, while the rpms read no more than 3500. The engine barely has to work. Switch it to manual shift mode and you will easliy reach 60 in first gear, not that it doesnt shift well automatically.
