Walking into a BMW dealership is no different than entering a five-star steakhouse: Everything’s à la carte, and you will pay through the nose to get the best trimmings. But sometimes, as Car and Driver notes, BMW throws us a bone (possibly a T-bone, in this instance)—and suddenly, an $80,625 640i coupe is somewhat easier to swallow.
The additional features include adaptive LED headlamps, 20-way multi-contour seats, head-up display, and a leather-covered dash. Ordered separately, those features normally require an additional $9100 on a 640i coupe. On 650i models with the M Sport edition, the $1900 Driver Assistance package also is included, which features 360-degree cameras and blind-spot detection.
The M Sport edition adds $4600 to the base price of convertibles, $4800 on coupes, and $5300 on Gran Coupes, with or without xDrive all-wheel drive. That’s not a lot more than the M Sport package alone. Apples to apples, a regular 640i coupe would cost $89,325 with all the noted options, whereas an M Sport edition 640i coupe, with ventilated seats and soft-close doors, is just $80,625.
If your 6-series is already on order, you might consider canceling your deposit and waiting until your BMW dealer receives the first M Sport editions in July. Otherwise, you’ll be missing out on that juicy steak with all the trimmings and eating at Chili’s like the rest of us.––Paul DucheneBack to News
