What's the used BMW 6 Series sports like?

The BMW 6 Series Convertible is lavishly equipped, supple-riding and quick – this impressive grand tourer was built to cover long distances.

It's based on the 5 Series saloon, so handles with all the polish you'd expect, and this convertible versin drives as neatly as the coupe and feels solid, although the high rear end makes reversing tricky.

Top down, the interior is hushed and calm, even at speed. But while it's a big car, there's not enough room in the back for adults, and luggage space is tight.

It's a relatively rare sight on UK streets, so exclusivity is assured. However, while the interior is handsome, it doesn't have the warmth or special feel of some competitors' interiors.

Like many other modern BMWs, many controls are handled by an iDrive system, which employs a single point-and-click dial to control heating, phone, stereo and so on. It's a love-it-or-hate-it device, so spend time with it before you buy.
