E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

That's a beautiful color combo. Congrats on your new purchase. The fun has yet begun (and the wait is an agony, I can attest to that!)

Great choices. Is "comfort access" still not available? Be sure to check in here often. It will help the nail-biting wait. And when you are about ready to take delivery, search for the lists of things you should bring/do at the dealer before taking your 6er home. You will probably have iDrive software 20.01, or better, which means more of the kinks will be worked out.

Good luck. Great Christmas present to yourself.

the "comfort acess" is a dilema. They just started offering it as an option so if the car is a fresh build i wil have that option. if the dealer finds a car to my specs and swaps with another dealer i cant get it. It was an option on my old car and it really doesnt matter to me either way.

As I have written many times in reference to one of my other cars, my CL55, it is a great option and I was unhappy BMW didn't have it. Coupled with the fact that you now have to insert the key (whoops, "fob") and then press a button nearby, it is a pain in the aft not to have comfort access (although the name is lame). If you can get it I would go for it. Then we can swap cars in a few months.

the debate goes on. after ordering the car with active steering I am having second thoughts. since I ordered the car as the dealer was closing on Christmas eve i am sure i can change my order on mon/tues morning. Is the safer bet to get the car with out active steering or is active steering something am going to wish i had. i never got to test drive a 6er w/out a/s so i never got to determine if you lose the "feel" of the road. SOS
