BMW 650i Convertible
By monteshere on
2006 BMW 6 Series 650i 2dr Convertible (4.8L 8cyl 6M)
After driving a Lexus SC430 for 6 years, the only other reasonably priced car that caught my eye was the Beemer 650i Convertible.
I was sold the minute I test drove it.
My biggest concern was wind noise through the soft-top.
That concern evaporated at 110mph on the freeway.
This car is quieter than the Lexus with a hard top!!!
Secondly, the car excellerates very well.
Almost as well as my '66 Big Block Vette (but it's far quieter).
I do miss the 4-speed shifting, but the sport mode while in the manual shift mode makes up for the need to clutch.
This car handles like a dream.
Lexus, take note: When you hard steer into a corner, the tires don't even while a bit.
I love this car!!!
Comfortable Front Seats,
None, I'd have to drive the 2013 to see what they have done already.
I know the HP has been boosted to 440HP.
