    My car

    I have owned ny 630 Convertible for 15 months and enjoy every journey. The car is comfortable and cruises for hours. In sports mode its a lively and fun experience. The car feels very secure on the road and around the winding lanes of Cornwall is sure footed. Despite the contoversial body shape the car certainly turns heads, with or wothout the roof down.

    I have only done 6,000 miles and have not even had a service as yet. Average about 30 mpg which is excellent for sucha car.

    Very quiet even with the roof down. Depreciation is not too bad when you consider that you lose a shed load of money whatever car you own.

    I had previosuly owned a 3 Series Convertible and find the 6 series a vast improvement although I accept this should be so based on the price tag.

    I would certainly recommend this car to anyone.

    My car

    My car was "misbuilt" by Munich. Mistake ackowledged by BMW. Forgot to add Extended Voice Control as part of Nav Professional option: however, BMW Park Lane have been "slow" in assistance. Car has been with German dealer for 7 days to fix.

    "6" is a star on German autobahns: very responsive and easy to drive. Also good on German "A" roads, which have better surfaces than UK - run flat tyres fitted.

    MPGs do make your eyes water, but that is what you expect. I-Drive computer seems to be very slow to fire up and produce information at start up. (I can be out of the garage before the PDC cuts in)!

    I-Drive seems more complicated than my previous 5-series car. Supplied '05 Sat Nav DVD does not cover essential road changes within Germany as they get ready for World Cup '06.

    The "Voice" is either American "woman" or "man"! Not good. Very good car with flaws, some company derived!

    My car

    Superb car - especially with the dynamic drive package (active steering; active suspension etc). The active steering really grows on the driver with extended use and today I would not be without it. The degree of control and feedback is phenomenal and driving my wife's 330 Sport now feels really retrograde - the steering now feels imprecise.

    The active suspension provides a flat ride when cornering and grip in spades. The fuel economy is excellent and I have achieved 32mpg whilst "running in" with better than 30mpg in normal use.

    I had to wait around two years because of various delays with the HuD and the new Al/Mg engine but it's well worth it! Dealer first class. Strongly recommended.

    My car

    This car has given me my greatest experience ever of driving a car.

    It's a technological tour de force and there is a certain romance about it all. It may be the exhaust burble, the nostalgic lines, the sportiness. It's quite a sensational thing too and always attracts a crowd.

    There really is no competition. The Merc CLK is a step down, the top-end roadsters are much costlier and importantly offer only two seats. It has always been great to share drives with four onboard. Moreover, I have had no troubles with it and overall I am very happy with my choice and would recommend it to anyone.
