Thank you. The weight data is interesting although most reviews I've seen remark that it "feels" much smaller and lighter. I didn't know that the 330ic has more leg room in the rear. It will also have a hard top that for me will be a big plus and in addition I would imagine that it will be comparable in the speed department. What then would be the advantage of the 6 cabrio?
Does anyone know if the new M3 convertible will be hard or soft top? Would they make 2 different 3 series drop top bodies?

"The weight data is interesting although most reviews I've seen remark that it "feels" much smaller and lighter."
My sister-in-law's husband would agree. He is considering a 650ic and currently drives a Hummer H2.
I thought the 645i I drove felt very heavy. But I previously owned a Honda S2000 and was primarily interested in a true sports car.
So it really is important that you test drive it yourself and don't pay too much attention to reviews and the opinions of others - including me.

#16 of 20 Thinking about buying a used 645

I am thinking about buying a used 645 or 650, but cannot get over how much the car looks like a Toyota Solara. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Yikes, a Solara! BMW took a lot or criticism for the rear end design (look up "bangle butt on the internet) starting with the 7 series, and extended through their line, including the 6. In spite of the criticism others have copied it shamelessly, including the Solara. I'd rather think the Solara rear end design is a poor imitation of a BMW than the other way around. At least with BMW its original.
Look also at the new Mercedez Maybach and S class, also Hyundai, Honda Legend.

That lease is now $808.00 on a 2008 650 convertible as of 12-31-08, so probably not considering the same car six months later.
#20 of 20 Would snow tires/wheels on a 645 Coupe make it drivable in Chicago snow?
Feb 02, 2009 (11:19 am)
I am considering buying a used RWD 2005 bmw 645 coupe for use as my primary vehicle. I have indoor parking and would only drive it minimally in winter (20 mile commute to work comprising 7 miles on moderately plowed roads + balance on highway). I would fit it with good snow tires and smaller wheels for winter use (don't have problem storing the extra set of wheels in my apt). Question is - how driveable will this rear-wheel drive be in the chicago snow with snow tires/smaller wheels, if I drive slow etc? Would the back keep spinning uncontrollably and would I be unable to start in snow? This is the first car I am buying but it looks absolutely gorgeous so really want to buy it if winter driving is manageable, despite it being RWD. Also I have heard that the traction control (DTC and DTS) would help in winter conditions. Any advice/comments would be much appreciated. Thanks
