Some don't like the car, but I have dozens of people telling me how much they like it. I had a 2004 645ci and it went like stink. Now my 650 simply is fantastic. Both cars have the most amazing grip and impart a feel of confidence. The iDrive isn't too bad, if you can't master it you must have a very short span of attention.
Lovely expensive sounding exhaust. Stunning performance, who needs the M6. The interior has to be the best around. Quality is tops, although I find the interior door finishing are a little delicate and easy to damage. I love the car. I love it's space. It is a winner.
Tyres are a little harsh, but only over nasty surfaces.
If you can afford this car and want a FAST, great handling coupe, go buy one. My old BMW doesn't even compare to this car. You won't see very many on the road and heads will turn when you drive by. I can't say enough great things about this car.
Seat belt scratches door interior when released because of the belt placement way behind the seat. Introducing MP3 capability for the disk changer (not just the front player). Bluetooth pairing is limited to very few phone models because of the old bluetooth version.
This car is just an extreme pleasure to drive, the handling, acceleration and features far exceeds the my other luxury coupe test drives. The complaints on the iDrive are understood, but I use the voice control to access just about anything on the menu, without touching the iDrive. I live in the Miami area where there are many, many lux coupes out there, but the BMW always turn heads. Absolutely, no regrets buying this car.
Best feature is the handling and the planted feeling on the road. Also like the Bluetooth, voice commands and the exhaust note.
The cupholders needs to be re-engineered and additional 12v outlets should be installed.
