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.

Just completed 2,000 mile road trip

Went from San Diego to Sonoma Valley and then on up to Oregon for Thanksgiving.

Please to say the car handled great with no issues. I also noticed a nice feature with the standard cruise control. If you move the lever all the way forward or back until it clicks, it will advance or decline speed in 5 mile increments. This came in handy since I don't have active cruise.

Took the 5 up to About mid point, then went west and stayed at a cabin on the Russian River for a couple days. While there I went to the coast to visit my favorite Oyster bar/restaurant and out to Point Reyes. Then I came back inland and took the 5 up to Eugene and Portland.

I wish I had the time to take the coast highway all the way up but the turkey was calling. Maybe next time.

I did take 101 for part of the trip through the Santa Rosa area.

The weather was a little foggy in Eugene. But went fly fishing on the Willamette and it was nice and sunny at that level. Caught some nice trout. (Catch and release).

Will be back in the summer for a family rafting trip up by Bend.
