1985 BMW 6 SeriesReview

Top Of The Range Bmw For The Afluent 80's Makes An Entertaining, Enjoyable Modern Classic. — Another childhood dream car...retailed for about as much as a small house back in the decade of the Yuppie and bold suspenders. Build quality is typical 80's BMW...rock solid and designed with servicing in mind (versus today's Bimmers that are essentially disposable commodities). Leather is thick and vat dyed. Luxury features abound. Fuel consumption (with 5 speed) is reasonable (under 10L/100 km), but greatly effected by driving style. Basic Bosch engine management system needs Dinan chip to "wake it up". An entertaining Grand Touring coupe dating back to 1976 and the last of the elegant BMWs. Get rid of the Michelin TRX metric size tires for better grip and handling. BBS Style 5 rims are the most appropriate period upgrade.

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

Pros: Elegant looks, spirited back-road performance and torquey 3.5 litre in-line 6.

Cons: Be careful of rust, as water management was an issue on these older BMWs.

The 650i is one of the most attractive designs BMW has on the road. Beautiful from every angle. Rides like a Luxury Sedan and corners like a sports car. I will definitely buy another one when this o... Read More

Although being a two convertible makes it seem hard to be a family car. However, this model is big enough for a family of three because of roomy interior and head clearance it offers in its class, it... Read More
