Call or email for an exact quote to your zip code. Via the iDrive i-menu, the driver decides which information is to be displayed and the brightness of the display; the display can also be turned on and off. As before, two wood trim options—Dark Birch and new Maple wood—are available at no extra charge. These were the top of the line personal luxury cars and still are today. Formerly, two different adhesives were necessary for these two functions; using only one saves 6. Automotive body engineers beef up the lower body to compensate. Whatever automatic intervention occurs under such conditions, the driver can override it by stepping on the accelerator or brake pedal.
The steering ratio becomes quicker more steering effect for a given steering-wheel motion as the wheel is turned outward from its center position. Another special feature of the Convertible front seats is their seat-integrated safety belts. For 2008 this option not only broadens the choice of colors over the standard Black or Cream Beige, but also provides an upgrade to a full leather dashboard in black Nappa leather in addition to the sun blinds and center console previously featured. An icon on the instrument panel alerts the driver whenever the Assistant is enabled. Also optional is a high-beam assistant that switches the headlights to low beams when it detects oncoming traffic. It has six memory presets that help drivers grow used to its knob-controller interface.
Power-tilting Panorama Moonroof Coupe The Coupe's short roof precludes a conventional tilt-and-slide moonroof; the Panorama Moonroof more than compensates with its own functional and esthetic attributes. If you pick your vehicle up in person, it is up to you to know what you're buying and look at the vehicle for yourself. This system controls rear-wheel angles very precisely, minimizing unwanted effects under load changes such as lifting off the gas while cornering, and hard acceleration or braking — and achieves a remarkably comfortable ride. Additionally, brushed aluminum trim replaces the previous Ruthenium, giving the interior a lighter, brighter appearance. The clear portion of the rear lamps has also been reconfigured to improve the effectiveness of the back-up lights and amber turn signals.
The hood's aluminum outer and inner skins — the latter essential for strength — are bonded together with a new adhesive that gives it both longitudinal strength a factor in crash-energy absorption and vibration resistance. It has the Sport Package. The more readily experienced advance, however, is added urge virtually anytime the driver presses down on the accelerator pedal, especially at midrange speeds. If either sensor system is triggered, the rollbars are deployed upward by powerful springs in a fraction of a section, and locked into position to help sustain rollover forces. We also do our very best to describe every option on every vehicle. The silky 360-horsepower V8 takes it from zero to 60 mph in just about 5.
With increasing vehicle speed, the steering becomes 'slower,' favoring stability over agility. It can bring the 6 Series to a complete stop and resume acceleration to a set distance behind the car ahead. The driver can then start up without doing a ballet with the clutch, brake and accelerator manual transmission or rolling backward on a steep hill automatic transmission. We list exact mileage on the date that we take pictures of every vehicle. It is probably one of the finest available in the country.
The head airbags extend a bit past the , but not enough to protect rear-seat passengers. For 2008, that vision takes on a slightly sharper focus. It stores handily in its pouch in the trunk, is relatively light 5. We have not owned each vehicle since new. Braking, steering, and suspension all are controlled by electronics, and that chips away at the emotional connection that draws us to sporty cars in the first place. Standard run-flat tires allow omitting a spare tire, which helps achieve the spacious cargo compartment.
For 2008, a host of refinements enable these new models to maintain their class-leading positions. An aluminum front-end structure, door panels and hood, plus thermoplastic front side panels save significant poundage over all-steel counterparts. The previous system could only reduce the throttle opening. The 6-Series has copious power and great handling, but it teeters on technology overload. Standard Active Roll Stabilization This suspension innovation dramatically reduces body roll in cornering. It can make for touchy acceleration in stop-and-go traffic, though, which may take some practice to iron out. Because all its models have run-flat tires, the 6 Series was designed without a spare; this contributes to the Series' generous trunk capacity.
The six-speed automatic transmission features steering wheel mounted paddle shifters that provide the driver the ability to shift the car like a manual transmission when so desired. The balance can be paid via certified check, wire transfer or your loan check. The Convertible distinguishes itself with a fully-lined one-touch power top and power-retractable back glass element. Active Head Restraints allow passengers to adjust the restraints to a comfortable position without compromising their effectiveness in a rear-end collision. Power-mirror features The power exterior mirrors include both auto-dimming and heating functions.
Two option packages dress up the 6-Series. Please note that every eimports vehicle is pre-owned. Tires,wheels and finish on this vehicle are exceptional, sure to please the most discerning buyer. We do our very best to describe each vehicle fully. My test car came outfitted with optional sport seats, whose substantial side bolsters still leave ample room for comfort. You can call us to make this deposit or place it online on our website. This 650I is powered by the original 4.
Not only was this level of equipment well above the typical sport-luxury car, but several of these features were unique to the class. Steering power assist with standard Servotronic steering only is reduced. The current speed can also be captured as one of the programmed speeds. The optional Active Cruise Control also adds expanded functions for 2008. This means less tendency of the brakes to vibrate when hot, and reduced likelihood of the rotors cracking under extreme heat conditions. Even now, four years after their introduction, the Coupe and Convertible remain two of the best-selling members of their class.
