Very nice and such good value.

I was very tempted to buy manual 650i, but felt was the wrong car image for my business at time as I had to make redundancies.

Very jealous

Yes 635d Rog. I wanted something refined easier to live with day to day.And as per sohlman. They are amazing value secondhand.

It's two and a half years old, with only 14k miles and was half its price new.

I sat inside one not so long ago and decided it was one of the nicest interiors I'd seen in a long time. Congrats.

Lovely looking 635d. Welcome to the 6 series club! They are very economical beasts, at least my 640 is, great motorway cars. Maybe I should do a 12 months in with the 640 thread!

I dare say it would have been torched had you done it.

Anyway, nice car. I'll probably get a 6 series when I'm old.

I know just what you mean - last September I bought my 09/11 640i convertible (F12) with just 1,200 miles for list less 34k. The first year depreciation is staggering - I don't think I'll ever buy new again.

Bloody hell, look at all the 6er-boys crawling out from the woodwork . Defo must be an age thing

I remember the deal you got on the 6er Jon, an unusual colour combo if I recall, but what a price.

Some 'my time with a 6er' threads would be a welcome read chaps. Pete, you'll have to stop by for a brew sometime if passing for a closer inspection.

My time with a 6er is something I have been thinking about writing for a while mate, maybe I will write something in the next few days. I still lurk on this forum as I still have a 330D although my wife has it most of the time (for now)

Nice one Del Boy
At least you can talk the torque now.

Nice!

I'm thinking about doing the opposite of you. 650i to E91 335i.

I would be interested in your thoughts on how the two compare.
