Places in Today Good price or no dice The 650i offers both massage and ventilation, but it’s the availability of a phone-based infotainment system that the seller thinks is big selling point. Let’s see if the price also matters.
Past 1986 Nissan 200SX was an old car that many of you thought best left in the past. According to comments, the hatchback wasn’t special enough to guarantee anything close to the $ 7,500 asking price. This took Nissan an unbeatable 88 percent loss of No Dice.
Let me ask you; Has any BMW line had more ups and downs than the 6 Series? First line, E24 ‘1970s and ‘The 1980s broke out of the park, both stylistically and dynamically. The next iteration, replacing the E63 series 8, was… heh, heh, a bit of an ugly duckling forever locked in his swan house.
The newer F12 was kind of a return to form. This, of course, meant that BMW ditched it after a short period and preferred a new model reviving the 8 Series nameplate. Honestly, sometimes it feels like decision makers at BMW are just throwing darts at a cork board full of sticky notes to plan the brand lineup, with most of these darts land on notes marked with an X.
This 2012 BMW 650i it fulfills the original Grand Touring vision from the nameplate and adds an automatically foldable roof to the mix to keep you entertained in good weather. It has a clean title and 107,000 miles on the clock, which is just a tad more than 10,000 a year.
According to the announcement, gold paint is a rare color. This includes a car that appears to be in decent condition although damaged by a noticeable dent in the fender behind the driver’s door. To compensate for this, the countertop looks solid and the seller says it is airtight. The factory alloys also seem to wear little.
Inside, everything is similar, although the red carbon fiber trim on the dashboard may be a purchase for some. It’s not in bad shape, but it stands out clearly in the gloomy black leather-covered space. A big selling point, at least for the dealer, is the update of the infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. That must be a big improvement over the dreaded BMW iDrive, as long as you have a compatible phone.
Other little things that can be found in the cabin include front buckets that knead the back and buns, and 360 ° cameras to some extent compensate for the car’s poor visibility when the roof is raised.
There is also a lot to like under the hood. Power provides 4.4-the N63 V8 twin-turbo, which interestingly is a “hot valley” design that mounts turbochargers between the intake heads on the other (usually exhaust) side of these heads. In the 2012 model year, this produces 402 hp and 443 Nm of torque. Harnessing these ponies to work is a ZF 8-speed automatic. According to the dealer, everything works fine and the car drives “like new”.
What should a large, roadworthy coupe be realistically aiming for? Prices for the 650is are all over the map right now, but adding updated phone connectivity and overall presentation can make this one stand out. The seller hopes to stand out enough to get $ 21,200 per sale.
What do you think? Should to go for that kind of money? Or maybe, should this great GT be just a GTFO?
