Brilliant car for the money and a real head turner
BMW 6 SERIES 650i Sport 2dr Auto (Review date: 24th September '13)
I have owned a few BMW's before including several 5 Series and the BMW M5. Aside from the M5, the 650 beats them all for a combination of style and performance. In fact, the 0-60 time on my 650 is only half a second slower than it was on the M5.
The 650 is still a relatively rare car, so not much chance of your friends owning the same model, exclusivity counts.
This car is big, powerful and beautiful. It looks as good with the roof up, as it does when it is down. It performs and handles extremely well with good driver feel and balance. However, in snow or ice, it can be something of a nightmare, so either leave it at home, or invest is some ballast for the boot!
I average, in mixed driving, about 21MPG, which is acceptable for a vehicle with such a large engine. Luggage room is quite good and it will take a couple of good sized cases. The rear seats are okay for smaller adults, but it may be necessary to move the front seats forward for larger passengers or longer journeys.
My only complaint is its lack of any meaningful grip in snow or ice. But, a small price to pay, for such a stunning vehicle.
BMW 6 SERIES 635d Sport 2dr Auto (Review date: 1st December '12)
I have the 635d convertible, my wife has a 635d coupe. Both are fabulous cars. I find the power, handling, braking....everything is first class. Fuel consumption is nothing like that quoted by BMW but is still good for such a sturdy and fast vehicle, we get mid to late 30's driving progressively on A class country roads. Space in the back for passengers is really a token gesture. The boot provides ample storage. We traded in an E60 M5 and so far I have no regrets. I would highly recommend this car to anyone. Fun, fast, economical, good looking and practical (for two).
BMW 630i Convertible Sport (272)
BMW 6 SERIES 630i Sport 2dr Auto  (Review date: 12th November '12)
Had the car for 6months now and the car has proved to be exceptionally reliable, has a fantastic on road presence with an excellent soundtrack.
Great with hood down although the children did find it a bit cold in the back ! Heated seats a must. Car handles very well and the 6 speed auto is very smooth and responsive depending on your driving style, put it into sport and it is very quick indeed for such a large car.
Averaging 27 mpg on my daily 22 mile round trip commute including crawling in traffic. Can get in excess of 30+ mpg on a longer run, fantastic motorway cruiser too. The most comfortable car I have ever had, electric memory seats are exceptionally comfortable. The boot is huge for a convertible, you can pack for a family of 4 for a weekend away, the clever roof stowage can be retracted to create even more space.
£250 a year road tax ! Excellent insurance costs ! Very reasonable service costs.
I wouldn't drive a long distance with my kids in the back as space is restricted, I am only 5 ft 11 too, so as long as you have a second car or are doing shorter journeys then not a problem.
I absolutely love the car, it does give you a great sense of well being when the sun is out and the roof is down. Very well insulated with hood up. My wife accused me of having a mid life crisis but she now fully appreciates it. If you are seriously considering one, get one, you won't regret it. Go for the 6 speed auto with lower emissions too, better MPG and road tax ! Get one. Excellent car !!
630i Sport Convertible
BMW 6 SERIES 630i Sport 2dr Auto  (Review date: 11th November '12)
Have had the car for 6 months now and it has lived up to all expectations.
This is the 272 bhp model with 6 speed auto which is particularly smooth depending on how you wish to drive it, the sport mode is very quick !
Considering that I use the car every day it is by far the most comfortable car that I have owned and I've had Audis, 5 series and an E Class . I average 27 mpg including stop/start traffic on the way to work and will get in excess of 30 mpg on a longer journey. BMW state that the average mpg will be 34.9 but I have never achieved this.
Fantastic feeling to have the hood down in warmer weather and my two children who are 7 and 10 can fit in the rear seats although about an hours drive is enough for them as there isn't much leg room and I am only 5 ft 11 . If your children are in the back with the roof down, ensure that they're wrapped up, you're cossetted in the front but it is breezy in the back !
Loads of extras as standard, heated seats are a must !
The car has performed exceptionally and I have had no problems to date. 12 months road tax £250 , fully comp under £400 !!!
Very comfortable on winding roads as well as on the motorway.
I really deliberated before buying this car but quite honestly I absolutely love it, if you have young kids and you want to put a smile on your face without the excessive costs involved with supercar ownership then buy one, you won't be disappointed.
BMW 645Ci 2dr Auto Convertible (04-10)
BMW 6 SERIES 645Ci 2dr Auto (Review date: 18th October '12)
The 645 CI convertible is truly an amazing car for the money; good examples at £11500. I bought my first one few months ago and absolutely love it. The ride comfort and looks are as elegant as an Aston martin, although I feel my BMW 6 series drives a lot smoother and is an outstanding long distance cruiser. It is also a head turner and anywhere you turn up they know you mean business. The other good point is, the bold angular lines and the shark faced nose, attracts a lot of attention with the ladies too. It also produces an absolutely lovely V8 rumble which turns into a ROAR with the touch of the sport button. The best bit of all is everyone thinks your driving a 70 grand beast. Lovely...Get one HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
BMW 650i Sport convertible
BMW 6 SERIES 650i Sport 2dr Auto (Review date: 12th August '12)
I have owned this BMW 650i sport convertible for about 6 months now and what a car.I previously had a BMW 645ci and the difference is amazing.the performance is almost equal but the 650 is alot more crisper and youthful than the 645.overall the interior is the same although the sport version looks and feels a lt better and newer.
The performance is awesome and the fuel consumption isn't too bad if driven sensibly.the boot space is really good,whether the hood is up or own and the back seats are ample.the shape is stunning.
Servicing costs are actually decent .it's been a reliable apart from a couple of common faults put down to mostly wear and tear.I've always had the 7 series but definitely it will be the 6 series as I find the new 7s rather boring and un involving.the 650 is just right.
Hopefully in a year or so I will be looking to upgrade to the new shape which to me is the best car in the world .
BMW 645ci. A lot of car for a wide array of uses.
BMW 6 SERIES 645Ci 2dr Auto (Review date: 27th January '12)
Great overall car. Not a supercar, but sounds and drives like one. Practical with loads of boot space. Real back seats capable of handling real grown ups and not only kids.
Power is great although putting your foot down might make a bit of a harsh move and a bit of a whiplash for the passenger.
Great tourer with loads of torque and quite a few toys standard.
Only issues are the consumption and the gear box which sometimes can act funny. This is a common issue with the ZF box that equips Jaguags, Bentleys and BMW. for more info on potential problems check http://thelurch.com/lurching_zf_transmission.htm
Fantastic BMW but not without it's faults
BMW 6 SERIES 630i 2dr Auto (Review date: 19th January '12)
I bought this car in May this year and from the onset I have enjoyed this car it has a classy feel and a real presence on the road. I also appreciate the rarity of the car as I have not seen too many of them in my area. When the sun has been shining it Is wonderful to have the roof down.
On a positive when this car is used on the motorway I would say that it is reasonable with it's fuel consumption but this can evaporate
When used in the sport mode and going through the gears manually but it is a joy to drive.Through the city the car is far from frugal and you will be hard pressed to get twenty mpg.The boot is sufficient for my needs when shopping at the local supermarket or even for more awkward loads.the rear seats are alright for short journeys but would be cramped for longer journeys and would not recommend.
Day to day running costs are reasonable but servicing costs can be prohibitively expensive so far I had an issue with the roof this cost seventeen hundred pounds to repair. To reduce the cost of regular servicing the condition based servicing does help with the costs. Tyres are again very expensive and are approximately six hundred pounds per a pair. It is still even with these costs a great car and for the price purchased second hand a great car.
BMW 630i Sports Convertible
BMW 6 SERIES 630i Sport 2dr Auto (Review date: 19th June '11)
Overall fantastic looking/driving car. Top down driving is superb - hood mechanism good. Wind noise OK with hood up. Stability and performance excellent. Fuel economy is OK at about 25mpg on average. Reliability excellent - as you'd expect - and service costs reasonable - less if you don't need BMW FSH. Perfect car for summer driving with your partner - plus copes with having the kids in the back once in a while.
Leave it at home in snow/ice - rear wheel drive and ultra wide tyres are hopeless.
The rear seat space is only really suitable for kids or small adults -if the driver is tall then it's non-existant on driver side.
Runflats all round are expensive - expect to pay £300 each.
