After much deliberation, I bought a new 650i coupe. I always liked it generally, but could not imagine a car at this price without an opening sunroof. You have to drive it to understand that the trade off is a beautiful panoramic experience through the roof glass with ventilation still available. The trunk area, which I always saw as ugly Bangle bungling, is subtly changed and now much more acceptable to me. The brake light previously near the back window is now integrated into the deck lid. It just looks better. People really rubber neck; a nice extra.
HUD; bluetooth, xenon lights, "growl", interior chrome on cup holder and steering wheel. Endless acceleration.
Paddle shifters not intuitive, rear deck still leaves styling opportunity, nav screen graphics need upgrade.
