Review of the 2005 BMW 6 Series

  • The 6 Series may not have the sleek, sexy sheet metal of its Mercedes-Benz rivals, but its satisfying combination of performance, luxury and technology will put you on top of the world.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Nimble handling for a big coupe, smooth and quiet ride, endless power from ultrasmooth V8, elegant interior design, supportive seats, large trunk in coupe.

  • Cons

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

Unreliable starts

by on
Vehicle: 2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Coupe (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

At first I loved this car. I'm a low mileage driver and BMW tells me the car is meant to be driven a lot. If you don't drive it a lot this car is a life of hell. The BMW dealer told me if I don't drive it at least one day a week for an hour the battery will die. He said there is too much draining the battery. It's not a week though. Seven starts drains the battery. I keep it on a trickle charge, but that apparently doesn't keep it from draining. After the battery drains a couple dozen times, its time for a new battery which today cost over $500. That's not acceptable but what is really unacceptable is having an $80,000 car that leaves me stranded and calling AAA once a week.

6 series - buffed elegance

by on
Vehicle: 2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Coupe (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

Great car. With the sport package, this is truly buffed elegance. I really enjoy the interior and the exterior design. Great sound system. As for the much maligned iDrive. If you don't enjoy being challenged by technology, don't get the iDrive. As for me, I am a techy, so I find the iDrive very functional and entertaining.

For the price nothing come

Vehicle: 2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Coupe (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

The only car the come close to the 645ci is a 545i. The design is excellent, ride quality is great, handling out of this world - what's to say more. Go out and drive one




Bmw 645ci coupe

Vehicle: 2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Coupe (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

Awesome comes to mind. Great road handling, great pick-up speed, great sound system and a car that receives a lot of "double takes".




Bmw 911

Vehicle: 2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Coupe (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

My first BMW is my 99-528 that I drive daily and can't say enough about so I was destined for another. I was between a 645 and 745. I chose the 645 and have not been disappointed. I do miss the ability to take the 3rd or 4th passenger on occasion, however the ride, handling and looks far outweigh that. I also own a 911 and am considering getting rid of that to upgrade the 528 to a 745. The 645 gives me eveything I was getting from the 911. The only problem I have had is the navigation has been occasionally acting up, saying "can't read disc" I'm scheduled to take it in next week so hope it's an easy correction.
