BMW 6 Series Edition Sport announced as M cars enhanced and prices revealed for flagship BMW X6

BMW's Grand Tourer gets new sports package


The BMW 6 Series Coupé and Convertible are now offered with a new sports package aimed at enhancing driving dynamics and
adding a more sporting appearance.


Available on all non-M derivatives, the Edition Sport package comprises a new contoured bonnet for an aggressive look, bespoke
19-inch light alloy wheels and M anti-roll stabilisation system for improved handling. The suspension enhancement will benefit Edition
Sport model customers with the insertion of stiffer anti-roll bars for a 10 per cent firmer front axle and a 30 per cent firmer rear axle
rear. This results in improved handling and a more composed ride during enthusiastic driving.


A Brushed Aluminium interior, Extended lighting and the opportunity to specify one of seven colours, of which Imola Red and Carbon
Black are new to the 6 Series range, completes the offering. Building on this specification, BMW 650i Edition Sport Coupés and
Convertibles also come with a Sports exhaust for enhanced engine breathing and aural pleasure.


Prices for the new derivative of BMW 6 Series start at £53,445 OTR for a 630i Edition Sport Coupé rising to £65,820 OTR for a 650i
Edition Sport Convertible.


BMW M3 and M6 receive further enhancements as changes announced to other models.


The BMW M6 Coupé is to be offered with a competition package aimed at offering enhanced driving dynamics. The new package
features a revised suspension configuration comprising of a 12mm lower front end and 10mm lower rear, retuned Dynamic Stability
Control and ABS settings, and a modified Variable M differential for greater cornering capability.


Visually, a competition package-equipped M6 Coupé has a new bonnet with precision lines for an increased sporting look and
M double-spoke light alloy wheels with wider rims that are shod with new Pirelli P Zero Corsa System tyres. The competition package
costs £2,180 in addition to the £84,475 OTR price of a BMW M6 Coupé.


Following the announcement of the new BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring, the M3 Saloon has also been updated for September.
The pinnacle of 3 Series Saloon ownership now gets the same rear end enhancements as the 'standard' cars. A new light cluster with
integrated LED indicators features alongside changes in the profile of the boot lid and the rear valance. Inside, and a light redesign of
the centre console and the introduction of pearlescent chrome switchgear adds an additional tier of refinement.


News of the changes coincides with the introduction of the new iDrive platform on all 3 Series models and the 5 and 6 Series ranges
for cars built from September. All 3 Series models now have active head restraints as standard to guard against whiplash injury in a rear
end accident.

BMW X6 xDrive50i comes to the UK.

The BMW X6 range is to get a new flagship with the launch of the BMW X6 xDrive50i. Powered by a unique twin-turbocharged V8 engine,
the vehicle's 408hp powerplant is capable of propelling the vehicle from zero to 62mph in 5.4 seconds before going on to an electronically-
limited top speed of 155mph.


The 4,395cc engine features the novel design of two turbochargers and catalysts within the vee of the engine. Such a configuration aids
packaging requirements while also boosting responsiveness courtesy of the shortened exhaust pipes. To highlight the competitive advantage
this arrangement yields the BMW X6 xDrive50i is 1.8 seconds quicker from zero to 62mph than the flagship Range Rover Sport. The BMW's
CO2 emissions figure of 299g/km is 75g/km cleaner than the Range Rover and, in recording a combined 22.6mpg figure, it is also 4.8mpg
more fuel efficient. It is a similar story when comparing the same BMW X6 to the Porsche Cayenne GTS. The Porsche is 1.4 seconds slower
from zero to 62mph, 2.3mpg less efficient and, at 332g/km, it is 33g/km more polluting*.


The BMW X6 xDrive50i goes on sale in November priced at £53,930 OTR.
*Note: Performance figures are for the Tiptronic-equipped Porsche Cayenne as the BMW X6 is only offered with an automatic gearbox.

not too impressed with the new lines, as an M6 owner, i really feel this new "competition package", didnt do much for the M6, i was expecting more flares, different colored breaks, rear spoiler, and new rims. the 6 series looks alot better that way, looks like they gave the exhaust a new tip, and gave it M6 brakes..

Not until later in 2009.

I also think that this post is a good place as any to let you know that I am going to be taking a break from posting here for a while as my participation in this forum has been in a negative tone of late. It is affecting my ability to provide information to you in a constructive manner and that was the original intention.
Thanks and best of luck!

No matter how hard BMW tries dressing it up, the 6 series will always remind me of a catfish.

I was wondering the same thing (see picture below).

I think the new 6 series Competition Package looks hot...I've always loved the 6 series.

I'd only opt for the package for the hood. The wheels are worse than those of a 650i with ZSP.

Awesome!

"i told ya so" (again)

Yet again this is a rub in the face to all of those that kept trying to knock me when i said that bmw uses the 3 to introduce features other models will have, hence why it usually is the last to get a redesign.. in this case it was the hood!
can't waaait to see if the new m5 will have a bulge in the bonet... all i can think is pure sex with that lol


this is an AWESOME LOOK for the 650i!
its proportional to how the 550i is to the m5! awesome sport package look except those wheels, yuck!

the thing is, i never liked the 6/m6 originally and had preferred its concept design (the one with the Carolina blue color- it had bigger head lights and slightly wider grill i believe)

and the m6 is NOT wider than the regular 6.. which is a bit disappointing. IMO

The lci 6 with angel eyes look awesome gives it a nice wide presence with the angel eyes being small.

Oh and these wheels suck! lol

Ugly wheels, come on, gotta do better than that.

Anyone get the feeling BMW styling group is a bunch of 50 year olds?

BMW 6 series, most overrated and over-priced sports coupe in the market. It is no Aston martin.
