I'm confused. There are two different bronze cars pictured. One appears to be badged 640 and the other 650. The wheels and exhaust tips are also different.

The 640 has a turbo charged in-line 6 (315 hp), the 650 a twin-turbo v-8 (cranking out 450hp, 480ftp torque). I would like to add the 650 is loaded with the M package, not getting you any more horsepower, it's more of a cosmetic addition; sides skirts, rear and front are a little different, and you get a different sounding exhaust and smaller steering wheel, dark exhaust pipes, and better wheels along with badging for $4k+.

The car will price out along the 7 series, but with trumped-up quality and flair. I did notice the cost of options is pretty hgih. After pricing one out, it was the exact price of my 750Li that is pretty loaded. BMW is looking for a wider margin on this car by positioning it for the stylish buyer.

640 will be here next month-ish, and the 650 towards the end of the summer.

I'll be getting one of these in silver, I believe. Oh, and ED.

Thanks for posting. Many dealers don't even know about these cars yet. Mine didn't.
