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.

What happened? Is it a defect or something that the warranty could cover?

I had mine replaced by the dealer...
The finish started to come off the mechanism that opens the console..
Not sure on the price mine was done under warranty. Bet you could do it yourself.

Nice, I still have CPO, so they should replace it for me. The same is happening at the steering wheel.

I had my heated steering wheel replaced under the CPO warranty and the also replaced the gear shifter because the stainless steal finnish was pealing on it.
So they should replace that with no problems IMO
