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.

My road trip vs MPG

For what its worth...
Took my first road trip with the vert from Foster City CA to Santa Barbara CA. Around 315 miles one way. 80 mph average speed and 23.7 mpg on the way there and 70 mph average speed, 22.6 mpg on the way back. There are some hills to climb on the way back.

I guess that's pretty decent for our bimmers right?

I average 16-17 just in city driving. With the manual, you are able to disengage the transmission and coast to a stop a lot of times. Since the city has a stop light at every intersection, I tend to just move off in first and disengage and the car has enough momentum to reach the other light. If you catch the timing of the lights then you can just keep on rolling and shift to 2nd and so on. I'm planning a trip to DC soon so I am dying to see what I can get on the highway.

That's not that bad running at 80MPH. I figured that will be about my average speed. I love that 1 mile bridge "JFK memorial Hwy".
