Review of the 2004 BMW 6 Series

  • A phenomenal work of automotive engineering, but its shape fails to elicit universal enthusiasm.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Nimble handling for a big coupe, endless power from ultrasmooth V8, elegant interior design.

  • Cons

    iDrive controller is improved but still a nuisance, only one engine option.

  • What's New for 2004

    The 6 Series coupe is back after a 14-year hiatus from the BMW lineup. With eight-cylinder power and all the latest technology, it has the necessary ingredients to take on the world's finest luxury two-doors.

This is the best bmw

by on
Vehicle: 2004 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

I purchased my first BMW in 1987, a BMW 325is. Since then I have owned a BMW 528i, 328i convertible, 1988 M6, 540i, 745Li and now I own a 2004 BMW 645ci Convertible. I will tell you this as a prior BMW owner this is the best BMW I have ever owned. I love this car so much I can't bring my self to even drive it in the rain. I only have 14,000 miles on the car. This car turns heads, causes other vehicles horns to blow and lights to flash when approaching. My Lady always wants to a company me in the passenger’s seat. She's is nobody's fool. She knows wherever this car goes there is a lot of attention given and she enjoys being apart of it. This is truly an Ultimate Driving Machine.




Beware "the convertible roof"

Vehicle: 2004 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

Love to drive my 645 when the roof works which is not very often over the last year. BMW can't fix it after 4 attempts on my nickel and I can no longer afford these repair bills. Like some women, this car looks absolutely terrific, but don't even think about getting too close. It'll cost you! There are other cars out there that are a joy to drive, do the right thing - buy a coupe!

Too much fun in the

Vehicle: 2004 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

This car is not the best in any category, there are better looking, faster, cheaper, whatever the category. But as a package, this car is the one to take out on a winding road on a Saturday afternoon. Or you can just drop the top and actually enjoy your drive to work, as I do. It has all the power you need to be pushing well to the right side of 100 by the end of the average on ramp. It sticks to corners like glue. And yet is behaved enough to not look like you are finally living out your high school fantasy - even if that is exactly really what you're doing.




Awesome

Vehicle: 2004 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Coupe (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

Awesome is the only word to describe this vehicle. Engine performance, handling, braking, comfort, exterior, accessories-it has it all. The closest to perfection I have seen.




Beauty in motion

A blast to drive - can't leave it in the garage and take the Lexus!




Outstanding

Vehicle: 2004 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Coupe (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

A dream come true. I am a car fanatic and I have had cars ranging from Fords to Mercedes to a Viper. The moniker "the ultimate driving experience" is so true. I love my 645ci with the sport package and 6 speed manual. Performance and handling is exceptional and the sport seats are so comfortable yet will hold you in place when you zip into the twisties. No complaints against the car not even the I drive which once you get used to becomes second nature.
