E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
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.

Carpet got wet and car won't start

2008 BMW 650i convertible. The top was left down and the interior got wet. What is in there that would prohibit it from starting?

Start with fuses and relays, you don't say if the car will crank over???? You need to supply some more symptoms !!!

Always said I would go back to a 6 series

There are a few modules under the seats but I can't see those preventing the car from starting if they were water damaged. You might have a short somewhere in the harness due to the water. Try drying out the car completely, I would remove the seats (4 bolts) and pop off the rear seats (lift straight up). Scanning for codes should give you some ideas too.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater

As seen in previous threads a wet car can take several days to completely dry out.
