Be interested to know how you get on and what your mpg is like with the V8.

Can see the attraction!

Someone sure enjoyed machine polishing that bonnet.

A pretty car from every angle that doesn't include a view of the boot.

The rear window going up and down was always a nice trick.......

Thanks guys

Yea the v8 is pretty impressive, noise is amazing and in sport mode its a bit of an animal

Compared to the zed it is totally different, its bigger but the only time I have noticed was getting it through the garage door, I have to fold a mirror in

Stark yea the rear window is pretty cool

The roof takes ages to fold down compared to the zed though lol

Is the roof folding mechanism more intricate than a zed?

Mechanically, nothing ever ever went wrong with my two....my 645 had 50k miles.....but sold my 650 with 3k miles.....just watch the roof sensors...had a few problems.

If I could get a 6er in my garage (it would be close!) I'd have one in a heartbeat. Lovely motor and great photos.

the boot lid goes up first and it all folds inside that and then gets covered up, i test drove (3) 645i's before i got my ///M, they are a lovely smooth drive and very powerful, but every time i went back in my sons 3.0i Z4 i knew that is what i would end up with :D

p.s my son was logged in again on main pc this post was from AZ4MW :thumbsup:
