2012 BMW 6 Series 650i 2dr Convertible (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6M)
I traded in my M3 convertible and purchased the 2012 650i.
I went with the M3 in 2008 because the design of the previous model was just not to my taste but the 2012 model definitely turns heads.
The 650 isnt the sports car the M3 was, but it more than makes it up in comfort and design.
Dont get me wrong, the 4.4-liter, 32-valve 400-hp V-8 engine with TwinPower Turbo is plenty enough for any road in the US (excluding race tracks) for most drivers and enthusiasts.
It is definitely a great balance of power, performance, gadgetry, and style.
Much better than the previous model.
