6 Series
The 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.

New owner....Now with pics!!

So after days of rain here in New York, finally some sun!!!

So sorry for breaking cardinal rule #1 of no pics!!!

I took some iPhone pics of my new beauty:

2008 650i convert. Monaco Blue, cream interior.

I love driving this car more each day!!!

I will be starting with some easy appearance mods - looking into some Carbon Fiber pieces and maybe swapping bulbs on in the fog lamps. Any suggestions on good websites for fair prices and quality pieces?

Anyone have experience with the Ebay auctions from Taiwan for the CF kidney grills?

Congratulations! nice ride - you're going to love her. welcome to the 'fest!

e-92 is a good site for replacement bulbs that don't give error codes and a 'fest sponsor. Lot's of great threads here on lighting and mod's which were a big help to me, so try a few searches.

Dude! I've got the same ride!! Picked mine up in December and am crazy about the color combo. Glad you are enjoying it; these cars were meant to be driven...top down of course

I picked it up in March. It had 47,000 miles on it, and 3 months before the warranty/maintenance expired.

I was able to get the dealer to do front and rear brakes, new battery, and replace a few pieces of worn trim all under warranty.

Ended up paying about $40,000 for the car and then got about 2,000 worth of work for free!

After driving a Porsche for 5 years, I can get used to this level of luxury!!!
