Does it have the adjustable lowe part of the seat. Forget what it's called. Also is it ossibly an individual?

Check the other 6er threads or start a new one. Everyone is generally helpful, but may not look at this thread. I just happened to see a new post date.

By the way, the car is wonderful! Don't know about the automatic, but I love the manual.

Looking for support. Can't find a way to say no.
I'm brand new here boys. I'm getting away from Acura's and have been debating bimmers for years. Ready to make the plunge and a deal has almost fell in my lap. I have a co-worker who has a 7 and a M6. He's looking to move the 6 for what I think is a very reasonable price. I've searched independantly and found the price to be about spot on with what's being offered elsewhere. I have yet to contact the local BMW dealer for more reassurance. Thought I'd check with the hardcore bimmer lovers first. It's a 07 hardtop, M6 with some tech goodies inside. 27k miles. I'd be 3rd owner. Black with grey int. MT. No heads up display. Of course it's clean top to bottom, minty. He's asking 60k. It's not for sale anywhere yet. This was a private discussion and this price was off the cuff. I almost fell out of my chair and bought it then. Thankfully I didn't loose my mind...possibly my wife in the process. I'm gonna take my time, but don't want to let this one get away either. What do you guys think?

Look here for a list of available manual CPO 650s http://www.bmwusa.com/standard/conte...fmJUzz4yYtqk4H. If you can afford the extra money, it's definitely better to get a CPO.

I found one M6 in MD asking $61k with 18k miles and:
Factory Certified by BMW, 6yr/100,000 Mile BMW Factory Warranty Expires 07/28/2013, 4yr/50,000 Mile BMW Free Maintenance Program Expires 07/28/2011, Free 24hr BMW Roadside Assistance, Free Service Loaner, Free Carfax History Report, Factory Options: 6 Speed, Heads Up Display, Sirius Satellite Radio, Comfort Access, Parking Distance Control, In Dash AM/FM/CD, Silverstone Leather Interior

Also, going for the 650 instead of the M will save you some money and get you a great car with possibly fewer miles and a longer warranty. Go to the regular 650 boards and start a thread asking about differences between the two cars. I'm sure you'll get some good responses.

And here's one at Perillo BMW in Chicago http://www.perillobmw.com/site/used_...t-v547362.html It's been there a long time (at least since Sept when I saw it), so if you like it, they'd probably give you a great deal. And, by the way, it's kind of fun to go to a place, buy the car and drive it home.

Good luck!

The vert is the way to go, I highly recommed to get one with at least to years of factory warranty, the car communication computer or CCC on this car seems a bit moody, if it goes out it will not be covered under CPO, and will set you back at least $2K + labor. Other than that there is no better looking vert out there.

I was considering the vert before I got the 645 coup, it's was the additional 200kg of weight that put me off. But both are good built and gorgeous

No car is perfect, any other car has it's share of problems. I have had japanese cars that had recurring problems in the past.

If your free maintenance plan expired then you can always go to a good Indy shop to get oil changes, etc. for cheaper prices. You have to remember that this is a high end luxury car and not an economy car thus the higher maintenance cost.

Great deals on Bimmers in California. I'm interested. Tell me where.

To update your nav system, you may need the newest DVD. I had to update mine that way.

rear windows in coupes don't roll down & sunroof does not slide only tilts.

Any ideas why they don't make it so the rear windows do not go down on the coupe but (obviously) do in the convert? Wouldn't this be a nice option?

The rear roof design in the coupe is completely different. the convertible has a much smaller vertical rear window design that can go straight down into the rear deck. The coupe has a larger pane of rear glass that follows the roofline at an angle.

I just came across a 1988 635csi and am in love with it... My mechanic has already given me a (short) list of what to watch out for, but am curious about any opinions about this era, and if there are any issues I should be aware of. Although I wanted a manual trans, this one's an automatic...darn.
