Pros: "Luxury, power, sportiness and quality."

Cons: "Quality comes at a price for some parts..."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Can't say enough good things about this car. It is luxurious, beautiful, and an amazing ride. It is so hard to find big german v8's with a real stick shift these days. I love the feeling of shifting this car, it is so unique. Great for long freeway runs, actually gets good gas mileage and has tons of power in 6th gear (meant for the autobahn I guess...)"

Beautiful but unreliable

"This car's engines are very delicate and unreliable. Known for leaking oil. Electronics are very complex and upgrades have to be done on a yearly basis. Save yourself a headache and don't buy this car. 335i is a much more reliable vehicle. Any Mercedes Benz is a great buy!"

"I have had this car for 7 years and never a lick of problems. I've owned 928 Porsches, Vantage Aston and Ferraris - They got it right with this vehicle. Bro In Law has the ten Cylinder and it is not any stronger than my 8."

Cons: "Routine maintenance cost are expensive."

"This was my first BMW (2006 650i convertible). Purchased with low miles for a great price. Only disappointment is the trim in the door and the trim that surrounds the rear seats. Vinyl trim is very susceptible to tears from either wear or things snagging. Almost all the 6 series I looked at prior to purchase had tears or cuts in the trim. If you take care of the interior, it will last for many years to come with minimal wear, but if you neglect it, the wear will be evident. The car drives like a dream. This is my fourth German car. I have owned 2 Audi A8s, Mercedes E500 and a VW CC. This BWM is awesome in power, handling and responsiveness. Convertible top movement up and down is quiet. Can easily complete top action at a stoplight. Visibility is great despite the small rear window. I am 6'2" and I am very comfortable in the car. Seats are supportive and extremely comfortable. Thigh support could extend further for my height. Sound system is phenomenal. I have the Harmon Kardon upgraded sound system and it is great. Bluetooth with top up is great. Very quiet to person on the other end. With the top down, if you are below 60 mph with the windows up, not very noticeable on the receiver end. Above 60 mph, wind noise gets picked up by microphone on center console. No issues hearing the other person at any speed. Cabin is very quiet with minimal wind with windows up at speeds above 80 mph. My one complaint is parking. Due to low profile, must be extremely careful not to damage front bumper on tire stops in parking lots and backup parking is tough to judge due to higher rear trunk. I always end up further away from rear object than I anticipated. Backup sensors keep you safe, red means you are 2-3 feet away. Car is awesome and if you can afford the maintenance cost to maintain it, you cannot go wrong with a 6 series."

Pros: "Sexy!"

Cons: "One cup holder :("

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This is such a sexy car and is a terrific driving experience. This year is no frills on the interior with a standard stereo system, basic leather seating and only one cup holder. Guess you're just supposed to drive it..I have had numerous mechanical issues after the 5 year mark and if not for an extended warranty, I would have been out of pocket over $10k. Just put on new set of tires an switched to performance tires that are not run flat...made a big difference and a more comfortable ride. It's a fun car to drop the top and get some open air driving fun. One of the most beautiful cars on the road, pleasure to drive."

"I owned a 1988 635CSI and sold it in 2003. What a big mistake that was. I have owned a Mercedes, Jaguar and Porsche since then. All great cars but I have always missed the driving characteristics of my BMW. One day while traveling through NC I spotted a 2008 650i on a dealers lot. Low miles all the options I wanted and in immaculate condition. A little negotiating and she was mine! I don't care what anyone says "There is nothing like a BMW for road manners and driving fun.""
