2006 BMW 6 Series 650i 2dr Convertible (4.8L 8cyl 6M)
After my 4-years with the SC430 from Lexus, I was unhappy with its soft steering - heard the purr of the 650's engine and fell in love - at last the muscle car I could not afford as a teenager, with the class that comes with maturity (OK agreed - if I was so mature, I wouldn't care - right?).
Handling, sound of the engine, Heads-Up display, keyless entry, the freedom of a convertible. Even today, I get a lot of great compliments about the car - it has a very elegant look - it'd be a definite killer with a hard top.
The car was for the most part, very relaible, but once in a while, the interface would go bonkers - nothing to die for. The Service at South Motors has improved, BUT at first, they were VERY annoying - asked for a 5 rating, everywhere, but did nothing to earn it; they've improved. NEEDS HARD TOP.
