    Re: BMW 6 Series Concept

     They seem to have drawn a lot of inspiration from the EfficientDynamics concept for the front and rear design of the lights. 

     

    PS: I have a complete 3D model of that concept car, If anyone that deals with 3d modeling software wants it just PM me and I'll send it to you.

    Last time I talked to a friend who gives me informations was before hollidays. So when I have seen official pictures on internet, I was suprised too Smiley Smiley

    IMO 6er can't be compared with a 997, because 997 is more sports car and 6er is more (fast) luxury coupe... Also production car will be almost identical to this concept..

    New BMW will be shown in Paris, currently named "DontBlogAboutThis." Who likes ED concept will like that one too Smiley

    Actually, the longer I check this pictures, the more I love that car! 

     

    As I'm looking for a long distance commuting car (twice a week 400km) that might be a great choice!

    IMO this new good looking 6 series has no real competitors in its class.

    Porsche is too sports car, Mercedes is either too ordinary (E-class coupe) or too baroque and geriatric (CL) and Bentley is in another universe price-wise.

    It could also take sales from Maserati because it has the looks without the headaches and costs of the Italian brand.

    Very true. Could be more than a headache for Maserati. The BMW Coupés have always been great GT cars, just think of the 633csi/M635csi of the 70ies and 80ies. Beautiful car. BMW lost ground with the strange 8series and with the controversal Bangle 6series. But with this new concept they could be back on top, building one of the best looking, fast GT for a reasonable price. Smiley

    Re: BMW 6 Series Concept

    Not directly related but while I waited at my BMW dealer, I checked out a BMW 5 series station wagon (new version). While reading the specs, I had a shock: the 535d does 0-100 kph in 5.7 seconds. A Diesel.

    BMW really hit it off with the new 5 series. If they keep this pace up (and avoid price increases), they could have a huge success with the new 6 series too.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    For the first time? I would say every 5 series has been better than its E-class counterpart, especially for people who enjoy sporty driving characteristics.

    The previous E class was much better.

    It isn't hard to believe that rumoured "tri turbo" diesel engine would be performance flagship in 7 series, so performances would be even better than 750i.

    Also the best selling 6 series is with diesel engine, thats reason why BMW will offer diesel engine in next 6 series (640d) as soon as possible - probably initially.

    Re: BMW 6 Series Concept

    RC:

    My dealer has a frozen grey met. M6 in his showroom, beautiful looking car, no doubt about it but the price tag is 145000 EUR. Ouch. 

    He told me that BMW has given him a huge discount on this car, which of course he would pass on to me...if I would be interested. 

    Unfortunately the M6 is not the type of car I would consider a "fun car" for me, so I had to pass.

    Still: it has lots of rear room for the kids and the rear trunk isn't that small either. Could be a nice family car.

    Christian,

    I can imagine that BMW offers 25% discount on that M6, at least.

    However, couple of months ago I had driven my friend's M6 coupe and didn't like it at all.

    SMG III is worse than SMG II and light years behind M-DKG. It ruins all the driving experience. It is not comfortable in the traffic, and remeber that I had 2 E46 M3s w/SMG II, so I supposedly know how to drive this tranny as well as it is anot very very fast on sprited driving.

    The car is big so no sport car driving feel and it CONSUMES fuel, a lot of it. It is totally a useless car, IMO. Waste of money. SmileySmiley

    Still...even with a 25%  discount, this would be too expensive for me. I could get a 997 Carrera GTS instead, doesn't really make much sense to go for the M6.

    Re: BMW 6 Series Concept

    New 6 series size...

    4894mm L

    1894mm W

    1369mm H

    2855mm wheelbase

    This is a big car.

     

    BTW, I drove new 535i a month ago. I was very impressed with it. Autobox, active rear steering, active suspension etc. everything worked very, very well indeed.

    BUT... Few days ago I tried 530d without any drivers aid(NO active rear steering, NO active suspension etc.) only with autbox. What an awfull car! It felt inert and very, very heavy. To cut a long story short-I would never buy new 5 series without active rear steering and active suspension.

     

     


    Re: BMW 6 Series Concept

    I agree with you Kreso, on the 5. Also 18" RFT's or more (Run Flat Tires) especially in combination with the M pack&suspension can ruin the ride on bad roads.

    The active rear steering, predictably, you can't order in conjunction with xdrive. That would be even more interesting to see though: active AWD Smiley But the active hydraulic anti-roll bars combined with the active dampers really work very good to hide the car's weight. Also the steering settings are different when you select sport (more "meaty", "heavier", more focused).

    But in the end this is actually sad. Instead of trying to save weight, they made the car bigger. The next 3 series will also grow in size because of that... The 1 will become today's 3 and so on... And all this tech was invented and perfected just to hide the weight... To me that is sad. At least this particular package works well...

    The E60 5  series was big enough (the previous model). Also the front part of the chassis was made of aluminium (basically the part supporting the front of the car, engine bay, etc) and glued to the rest of the car. Now, on the F10, they switched back to steel to save cost (repairs cost for the front part of an E60 where high indeed). Only bonnet, trunk and doors are aluminium.

    I am still interested in this car but I can't get the weight out of my head yet. And the size!

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: BMW 6 Series Concept

    We are ordering one, 520d, for my father.

    When I confirm the configuration, I'll post it here. BUT we won't be ordering aktive steering and aktive suspansion since the car will be driven mostly by a driver.
