With models ranging from the 628i and 630i to the 635CSi and the awesome E24 M6, the last of the first 6-series were delivered in 1989. At the 2003 Frankfurt Auto show, the World was introduced to the all-new 6-series coupe. A short while later, the convertible version was launched. This car is proving to be every bit as good and desirable as the original although with a modern twist to allow it to stand out more.
With $99,000 in hand, a basic 645Ci can be yours. With all options, over $110,000 will be necessary to have the keys handed over. Our tester had the Executive Package (Sport seats, 19" wheels, etc) for a total of $105,400.

In this price range, people expect perfection and BMW delivers. The body panels are aligned with laser guided precision and the paint application is stunning. This ideology carries into the cockpit of the car. The leather that covers the straight-jacket-like front sport seats is rich and supple. The plastics and alloys used are fit for royalty. All of this comes together through excellent craftsmanship. The rear twin-bucket type bench is quite limited and is best suited for children that are being taken to Dairy Queen.
The only hiccup I could find with the interior accoutrements of this car was the center armrest: it is too high and my elbow bumps into it every time I shift. I had to lift the lid cover so that my elbow could slide back uninterrupted.
