2006 BMW 650i Convertible . There are plenty of things that BMW could have done at the factory to make this car a five star, 400,000 mile car, but they didnt. The 4.6 liter V-8 WILL NEED valve seals at some point, which is a major expense. I pulled the engine out to do it, and spent $4,500 at an indy shop, and another $4,000 doing preemptive work like resealing the entire engine, new A/C compressor, smog pump, etc., and I replaced a few other components just because the engine was on the floor. After that, I replaced both front and rear suspension...anything with rubber on it, and shocks all around....another $4,000. Would I do it again? Probably, because the car I like the car, it is super clean, and I am not planning on selling it. If I was looking for a reliable turnkey car, I probably would have passed on this Beemer and bought a domestic. Bought it with 69,000, now at 162,000, and everything is great. Total investment including purchase five years ago, about $30k. New ones are almost $100k.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the power, engineering and convertible top.

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

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.)

Pros: Handling, Head-Up Display, Night Vision, V8 360HP engine, Sound

Cons: Rear Sitting Space

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick car, fun to drive, handles well, and plenty of room for taller drivers.

Cons: Nothing

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.

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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A great handling SUV

Cons: Bad fuel economy

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfortable, nice, considered fancy

Cons: power could be more... electronics could define the car a little more than a basic 3 series
