2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

the 645 Ci is the sixth convertable that I've owned starting with a TR-3 and my last car was a MB SL500. The 645 is by far the most fun to drive, and the best to be seen in. I've never had so many people say great things about a car I've been driving, in car washes, at stop lights, parking lots,etc.etc. You get used to the iControl.

2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

The 645 is a great car to drive with the top down or up. The acceleration is good for a car of this size and weight, although it could always be faster. Handling with the sport package is good and I drive quite a bit on winding mountain roads and it handles great. I have yet to feel drift or loose traction even at 80+ on S turns. Acceleration on straights could be better. Overall a great touring car (as advertised).


Best Features

Combination of comfort and handling. A very fun car to drive through the mountains/hills on both sunny and not so sunny days.


Worst Features

Voice recognition is a little weak and commands aren't real intuitive, same with the navigation system. It was frustrating to have to read the manual to figure out to shut off the guidance voice since its hard to read while driving :- )... should be simpler/more obvious for those of us not so bright :-).

2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Moved out of a Benz SL600 into the 645CiC. The BMW has better braking, refined seating and no loss of performance; smoother and a much more quiet ride; Unlike the Benz, the Beemer roof line is not friendly to tall people.


Best Features

Braking; Active Steering; iDrive; PDC.


Worst Features

None at this time.

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


Review

Fantastic acceleration and stopping power. Pretty slushy in normal mode, but the "sport" button makes it very responsive. Active suspension is incredible. iDrive is a great alternative to dozens of tiny buttons, and is surprisingly intuitive, as is the voice command system. Very quiet and solid-feeling. Turns heads. Main criticism is that the driver is quite isolated from the road. Interior a bit disappointing for a car in this price bracket (lots of plastic, cheap carpet).


Best Features

V-8 power, Nav system, exhaust note, Logic 7 sound system, I-drive.


Worst Features

iDrive should remember the driver's preferred screen layout and display that immediately; should be able to start the car without the sound system booting up automatically.

2005 BMW 6 Series 645Ci 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is the best car I have ever had. Fun, gorgeous, fits my 6 yr. old in back, he loves it too. Looks like a bullet and drives like one. Head turning looks, throttle sound in engine is very fun. Seats are comfortable, the sound system is great, bluetooth for me works perfectly, very little wind blowing inside the car with the top down, even in the back. Like the window in rear that operates up and down. My first BMW, only MB before, and I have to say, I am not sure what car will come next. This will be hard to surpass all the way around...


Best Features

Looks, Style, Ride, Sound System, Throttle noise are terrific. Comfortable seats, nice interior design... I like the voice activation iDrive... once you work with it, I am used to it. Convertible operation is smooth and easy.


Worst Features

More cup holders, sit up higher (men can see better...women sit too low), brakes a little touchy.
