Offered in 650i and M6 trim levels, each with a 2-dr coupe and 2-dr convertible, the 6 Series boasts engines ranging from a 360-hp 4.8L V8 in the 650i to a hefty 500-hp 5.0L V10 under the hood of the M6. In addition to fine leather trim, the 6 Series features dual-zone climate control, cruise control, keyless entry, heated memory seats, navigation system, and a trip computer. Safety features include well-configured airbags and ABS.Read more Read less
Mostly unchanged, the BMW 6-Series receives minor freshening and equipment changes for 2008. The front end has been restyled to increase air intake for engine cooling, and the trunk lid has also been reshaped. LEDs accent the taillights and turn signals. Inside, iDrive's programming has been tweaked for greater ease of use. On the 650i coupe and convertible, the two optional six-speed automatic transmissions from 2007--the Sportronic and the sequential manual gearbox (SMG)--have been replaced by a new six-speed sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Also newly optional are high beam assist and a lane departure warning system. The Logic7 surround sound has dropped off the list of options, and you can now get the M6 with a heated steering wheel. The adaptive cruise control has been enhanced with a "stop and go" feature to make driving in traffic less stressful.
High performance in all regards; exceptional seats; comfortable ride; high-tech options.
The 2008 BMW 6-Series sedan stands apart from its 5-Series sibling thanks to its high-tech, performance-oriented features, which enable it to fill the double role of sports car and comfy luxury coupe. And the exclusive M6 model has performance to rival many exotics from specialty sports car makers, while still having enough refinement for everyday driving.
