BMW 645ci Sport Coupe--D&M Motorsports Video Walk Around 2012 Chris Moran
SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. An in-depth walk around presentation of a 2004 BMW 645ci Coupe with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M Motorsports.
Ever since the last 635CSi rolled off the production line in 1989, BMW fans have wondered how long it would be before the automaker revived one of its most popular GT coupes. The later 8 Series coupes, sold in the U.S. from 1991 to 1997, were fast and pretty, too. But they also were heavy, with no real rear legroom, and expensive. The new 645Ci melds the flavor of both previous models, adding heavy doses of the company's current technology and design language. Sharing architecture with the new 5 Series sedan, it's taller and has a greater overall length than the old 8 Series, with a wheelbase nearly five inches longer.
The 645Ci is powered by a throaty, responsive 4.4-liter, 333-horsepower V-8, with 332 pound-feet of torque available at 3600 rpm. That's more horsepower than the old 8 Series' 5.4-liter V-12 and almost as much torque.
In a hurry? How about 0-to-60 in a BMW-estimated 5.4 seconds? This car makes you want to risk getting a ticket every day of the week.
There are three six-speed transmission choices: a Steptronic automatic, a sequential-manual gearbox, and a flawless manual. For those who enjoy a stick but don't want to deal with a clutch, the 645's SMG will gladly take care of the work and do an excellent job of it.

As is the case with BMWs, the fully independent suspension absorbs bumps and inconsistencies without detaching the driver from the feel of the road, and the 6 holds on for dear life during aggressive cornering. The aluminum-intensive, rear-drive Ci has a near-50/50 weight distribution and a wide track and packs all the electronic acronyms you can stomach (DSC, CBC, ASC), all of which Boosts its stellar handling ability.
About the styling: While the direction BMW is taking doesn't appeal to everyone, the 6 Series is eye candy from most angles. The 7 Series-like creased trunklid still takes getting used to, but, overall, this muscular two-door looks good. Inside, the cabin design and materials lend a sophisticated, sporty, and luxurious air. The front seats are comfortable for long drives, and, unlike the old 8, the rear seats are useable, at least for shorter jaunts.
While the new 645Ci differs significantly from its forebears, it won't disappoint BMW 6/8 Series fans and will spark the interest of those who want a superbly executed luxury sport coupe. It's a glorious car, one that excels for high-speed straightaway work and winding through canyons. It makes us wonder what they have in mind for the M version
Luckily, BMW had the foresight not to incorporate the top's operation into the car's overly complicated iDrive system; the fully lined top is power-operated by a console-mounted button, lowering in 24 seconds. This rather trick lid is windowless, allowing the designers to integrate the glass into the rear deck, directly aft the headrests and completely independent of the top so the vertical window can be deployed as a wind deflector when the top is down, or, with top up, the glass can be lowered to increase pass-through ventilation for the cabin. Rear window operation is controlled from the driver's door-mounted switches, which can be programmed to lower or raise all five windows simultaneously using a single switch.
Powered by the same brawny 4.4-liter, 325-horsepower V-8 as in the coupe, the convertible is offered with a choice of six-speed manual, six-speed automatic, or six-speed sequential-manual gearboxes. Power comes on strong, fast, and smooth, and the engine emits a satisfying burble, an aural reminder that BMW continues to build some of the best powerplants in the business. Although the convertible weighs about 400 pounds more than the coupe, due to its structural reinforcements and folding-top mechanisms, our six-speed manual-equipped tester still managed a dash to 60 in an impressive 5.6 seconds. This is only a tenth of a second behind the last automatic-equipped Porsche 911 Cabriolet we tested (August 2002).
BMW's Active Roll Stabilization is standard on the 6 Series and helps hustle the convertible through the slalom at 64.5 mph, beating Cadillac's XLR and Lexus's SC 430, but falling behind Mercedes's SL500 and Maserati's Spyder. Vented, 13.7-inch two-piece iron and aluminum brake rotors help the two-ton-plus convertible stop from 60 in only 112 feet.

BMW 650i Convertible-- Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
An in-depth 2008 BMW 650i Convertible review with Chris Moran.
For most people, purchasing a large luxury coupe or convertible is entirely
an act of passion and indulgence, and right or wrong, outward appearance
can make or break the deal. Compared to the sleek offerings from rival
manufacturers Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar, well...let's just say the 2008 BMW
6 Series has a great personality. If there is such a thing as a sleeper
among the entries in the big-ticket touring class, this is it. Only when
you've taken the time to become fully acquainted with its pure driving
dynamics, innovative use of technology and lower price of entry does the 6
Series' true beauty become apparent.
In its fifth year of production, the rear-wheel-drive, four-passenger BMW
650i coupe is based on the same platform used for the 5 Series sedan. But
BMW aims the 6 Series higher. It has but one engine available, a 4.8-liter
V8. Not a single body panel is shared with the sedan, and the front and
rear suspensions are likewise calibrated for the 650's lower ride height
and sportier intentions. To keep its weight in check, aluminum is used
extensively for the suspension, hood and doors. Thermoplastic front fenders
and a composite deck lid do their high-tech best to keep the 6 Series
feeling spry, though this is still essentially a 4,000-pound car.
BMW equips its 6 Series well in terms of equipment, and you'll find but a
handful of features that are optional. Convertibles use a fully lined
folding soft top rather than a retractable hardtop, but it's a
sophisticated design capable of keeping interior noise to sedanlike levels.
The glass rear window opens for ventilation when the roof is up, and can be
raised to act as a wind buffer when the top is down. If you don't want to
go the convertible route, the 6 Series coupe feels nearly as airy, thanks
to its large glass roof section. The glass is too large to slide open, but
you can tilt it up slightly for ventilation.
Among high-dollar touring coupes and convertibles, the 2008 BMW 6 Series is
easily one of our top recommendations. However, for buyers chiefly
interested in style and opulence, the sleeker Mercedes-Benz CL550 and
Jaguar XK/XKR will prove more satisfying. The same goes for the highly
regarded Mercedes SL550 roadster. For enthusiast types who care about the
drive above all else, the smaller Porsche 911 is likely the better choice,
as it easily outhandles this plus-size Bimmer coupe.
Yet these cars are all more expensive than the 6 Series. And while cost
concerns are seldom of primary concern in this segment, when a car strikes
that near-perfect compromise between coddling its passengers and thrilling
its driver that the 2008 BMW 650i does, such a value proposition is hard to
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
Available in both coupe and convertible body styles, the 2008 BMW 650i
comes with a healthy complement of standard features including 18-inch
wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, leather upholstery, 12-way power front
seats with driver memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth
and an eight-speaker CD audio system with iPod integration and a regular
auxiliary audio jack. The convertible has a power soft top with a power
retractable rear window.
Two distinct option packages are available: Sport, which brings 19-inch
alloy wheels, enhanced exterior trim and sport seats to the table; and Cold
Weather, with heated seats and steering wheel. Other options include active
steering, adaptive cruise control, upgraded leather upholstery, a
surround-sound audio system, HD and satellite radios, a head-up display and
Powertrains and Performance
Motivation for both the rear-wheel-drive 650i coupe and convertible is
provided by a 4.8-liter V8 rated at 360 horsepower and 360
pound-feet of torque. Shifting duties are carried out by either a six-speed
manual or BMW's new six-speed automatic transmission with
steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and downshift rev-matching.
