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.

Can you jump start the BMW650 2007?

So my car has been sitting in the garage for a while and the battery is so low that it barely started last time I checked and ran a little rough. I am pretty sure its close to dead or there already. Can I jump start it? Seem to remember that it would not work and also if not a jump start can I put a trickle charger on it?

thanks

Asim

I have, my 2009 has a red cover with a plus sign to the back right of your engine compartment. It's not good to jump your car but you will see the positive post on upper right side

Every BMW I've owned since 1986...can be jump started. The instructions are in the owners manual.

You are supposed to use the jump start terminals dedicated for doing this that are located in the engine bay. And especially if you have an IBS (intelligent battery sensor)...then it is imperative that you use the engine bay terminals and DO NOT hook up a trickle charger or jumper cables directly to the battery.
