The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up.

Mein Auto: My dream car
650i Purchase

Hows it going? Im Wes from Ky. Been browsing around the forum for about a year now and Ive really got my sights on a 06-08 650i. Ive had the chance to drive an 05 645 and an 07 650i. After browsing around on here for a while as well as having driven one a few times Ive decided its time to take the plunge and get a 650i over a 645. I truly appreciate the attention to detail that was put into the car as well as what an engineering marvel it is.
Here are my questions( i appologize in advance if they are redundant as i have not mastered the bimmerfest search"fu")

1. I know these cars are expensive to maintain which is obviously the risk you take in buying a used luxury vehicle. I'm looking to stay within the 60-80k mi range because of price. I have seen quite a few in the mid 70s to lower 80s on miles and some in 60s depending on how hard I look. My question is what mileage range on average do you start to see things go wrong? Or is it even smart to look within that range as opposed to looking for something in the 50s. I just know that the 6ers ive seen listed with under 60k miles are a few grand more expensive than the ones listed in the 70s and 80s. Also on average I drive less than 40mi per week.

2. This has probably been discussed as well, but in terms of reliablity between the 335i and the 650i which one is less prone to failures?

Sorry in advance for the stupid questions but I would really appreciate any help! Hopefully soon I will be posting pics as an owner of a 6er!

Mein Auto: 2008 BMW 650i
Hey Wes007. There's no feeling like a 650i drop. It has a stronger presence than the 3 series. The 2006 is the first year that BMW got rid of the 645 for the 650i. 2008 is when they had the refresh including LED turn signals and tail lights among other features. Old young female and make will give you compliments anywhere you go. 330 may give you better throttle response due to tuning but the 650 still moves especially when you hit that sport button! I've had plenty of fun with my white 2008 650i convertible for 3 years now and I'm ready to sell now for something with a bit more space. PM me if interested. It's fully loaded and still has the balance of CPO warranty and extended maintenance plan till end of October. I'm located in NY. Happy hunting!
