Yeah, I saw it on his brog, I found the qoute while I was trying to find the source.

I would still like to see a car with a automatic gearbox and a clutch pedal.

I'd heard they were using hides of suede to lay on the panels of those Reventons as they rolled down the assembly line, to protect the matte finish, along with lots of other outlandish things - but now just a few years later, they offer it as a finish on their regular cars (like Nero Nemesis) and other makers who do that modern-handbuilt car style are doing the same - AMG and Alpina have both turned their sig colors (silver and blue respectively) into matte finishes... but the price isn't anywhere near the Reventon.

What do you guys think about the new 6 series cabrio? As the 640 cab it's not significantly more than a 335i cab, and the 6 makes a pretty nice statement....

A much improved exterior with a very opulent cabin. The cabin is very well done.

i actually think the new 6 is ugly as shit.

id much rather prefer the old 6, which is saying something.

Front and back end, I hate the old 6. It's going to go down in BMW history as the odd one out.

The new 6; I encountered it when I went to New York last summer and it was pretty stunning, and then I went down to the Aoyama showroom and it was pretty damn nice still, so I feel like I'd want down to the parking garage and say 'this is a nice car' for awhile. I've had enough BMW's in the past to know how they feel after a year or two of having them too, it gets to be a love affair. I just don't know about these new iDrive cars and the joysticks and shit, the last cars I've had max'ed out at nice heated seats and a few airbags to supposedly save my life. Haven't owned a car in a long while.

I am not so big on new BMWs but it's hard to say that the 6 cabrio wouldn't make a wonderful cruiser along the coastline or doing mountain drives, which is what I really want the car for.

here's what my worksheets for a 6 cab and then a very basic 320i with no options, for comparison - the right side in grey is the sticker price, in light blue highlights the monthly payment for 60 months - drop two zeros off that to get a theoretical dollar price (though the actual is more like 25% more with this exchange rate currently)

6 looks like:
23,500 down
507 a month
2,200 every 6 months X 10 as a 'bonus' payment
39,160 withheld as a deferred (whereby or long before which I would switch cars, penalty free, so moot)

stripper 320i is:
13,000 down
187 a month
1,600 every 6 months X 10
8,476 deferred

Residuals on the 6 after 5 years @$40K since they sell for about that much at that age used, are definitely better than the 320i after 5 years, as they would probably go for at least double the loan deferred.

I just got a flyer recently for indoor security parking @ $250 a month in my neighborhood, which is a steal. That's about how much one would spend anywhere in the country, so I would go for that. In light of that though, 507 a month vs 190 a month doesn't really seem like the actual machinery would cost so much.

A 911 is about 10-20K, maybe 30K more than a 6 series over here, fwiw.

what I've been saying for so long. I dislike both, but damn the new one is somehow more messed up than the old.


but hey -- jet likes the new one, so that has to count for something on styleforum

they should just get rid of the 6 series altogether. it's an ugly, heavy car with mediocre performance at a ridiculous price. i hate it.

impolyt, how the hell did you go from a 991 to a 6 series? confused.gif

they need it to hit the coupe market. the least they could do is kill it somehow like audi did in their coupe additions.
