BMW 6-Series Convertible 640i M Sport 2d Auto (2012/12) - Owner Review

Astonishingly quiet for a convertible and much more comfortable in terms of ride than I expected given all I have read about run-flat tyres. Very nice mpg for a lead foot like me!

BMW 6-Series Convertible (11-18)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I really don't care what people think. I feel so much smarter driving this than I would a 911 or XKR. It really does seem to have it all.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Don't care. I assume they think it looks nice but sounds like a tractor?

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. I think it's about 99% perfect.

What are you likely to buy next?
One of these if they'd do me the same deal. Since they probably won't though - an SLK 250 CDi AMG (which is amazingly cheap these days).

What price did you pay?
£73,500

When did you buy the car?
August 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Amazing lease deals at the time I was looking for a new car.

Amazing lease deal.

What was the dealer like?
Very nice dealer service.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Really pleasant. I actually leave it in Comfort mode about 99% of the time as I prefer the steering and engine revs that way. It really handles beautifully though (and I am comparing it with some pretty decent past cars). All in all, either the 2nd best or best car for day to day reality I have ever driven (and the other candidate did a consistent 15 mpg!).

What's it like to park?
Pretty good. Bonnet makes it a bit of a challenge for a shortarse like me and I do almost wish I'd gone for the reversing camera. I have kerbed it more than any car I have aver owned. Am I getting old or is it the run flats? Can't even blame the wife as she has fled!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Brakes don't seem to like not moving for 5-plus days. Have had a couple of problems with jumping back in the car after travel and airport parking.

What's most practical about your car?
Astonishingly quiet for a convertible and much more comfortable in terms of ride than I expected given all I have read about run-flat tyres. Very nice mpg for a lead foot like me!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Everything works just beautifully.
