I would go for a 2010 model. Or the 2012 F13 if you have the $.
  • LCI - mid life model updates (mainly lights and maybe hood if you get one with sport package)
  • CIC vs CCC - major update to the iDrive - better interface, better controls, USB input, hard drive etc....
  • Warranty
  • Better wheels (no more ellipsoids)

Price would be in the mid 40s and up, which is still about half of the new car price.

Thanks! What about the engine issues, are they the same from 2006 - 2010? What about if I only have money for 2007 -2009?

Go for an 08+. '09 is slightly better, but they all have the same engine since 2006.

Ken - get out of here!

I have a 2004 645ci, is the 650i 08-10 better than 2004 645ci engine?

petriej 09-28-2012 09:20 AM

Yes, just a bit.

Is 2010 the year they changed the engine? 2010 is about $50,000...these toys :(

petriej 09-28-2012 01:06 PM

2010 was the last model year for the E63, which used the N62B48 engine. The next model after that is the current F12 which uses a twinturbo V8, the N63.

So I might as well stick with the crap I have (2004 645ci) lol...same problems, different year :(
Thanks for clearity!!!
