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.

Battery

my 650i will not crank over but the battery bubble is green, is there another possible problem or is it just the battery?

How old is the battery? Anything past 3-4 years is average. If it has been discharged/not driven much, it takes a toll also. The green dot oft times means nothing.

If a dealer is what you want, I bought mine from Sterling BMW in Newport Beach, 3000 W Coast Hwy.

If you drove that far then the alternator is probably fine -- and your battery is probably shot. If you go to the dealer plan to pay anywhere from $350-$500 to have it put in - if you are handy it isn't hard to do yourself but if you are away from home then tools might be an issue. There are aftermarket batteries available that are perfect fits at places like autozone - and they might even install it for free. This could be an option if you can't get into a dealer for service early in the week...
