Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Redesigned last year, the BMW 6 Series comes with either an inline-six or V-8 engine and is offered in coupe and soft-top convertible variants, both of which seat four. The Jaguar XK is the 6 Series' most direct competitor, but you might cross-shop the car against a Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe or cabriolet, too. New for 2013 The 650i's twin-turbo V-8 is now rated at 445 horsepower and 480 pounds-feet of torque, and the engine features fuel-saving stop-start technology and BMW's Eco Pro setting. Exterior The 6 Series maintains a short front overhang and low-slung appearance. BMW says the design was inspired by the natural motion of waves.
The convertible's fully automatic soft-top has what BMW describes as a flying-buttress design in which the top trails behind a vertical rear window, maintaining a coupe-like roofline. The top, which can be operated at the touch of a button at speeds up to 25 mph, comes in black or beige. Exterior features include:
18-inch wheels standard; 19- or 20-inch wheels available
Standard adaptive xenon headlamps
Standard glass sunroof with power-sliding sunshade
Available adaptive LED headlights
Interior The interior has a 2+2 seating configuration with small rear seats. Trunk volume in the coupe is about 30 percent more than the convertible with its top up; with the top down, the convertible loses another 14 percent. Interior features include:
Optional ventilated and massaging front seats
Standard iDrive with a 10.2-inch high-resolution screen and navigation
Available heated steering wheel
Available Bang & Olufsen premium stereo
Under the Hood The 640i is powered by a 315-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine while the 650i gets a 445-hp, twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8. Mechanical features include:
Eight-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles
Rear-wheel drive for 640i
Rear- or all-wheel drive for 650i
Safety Both the coupe and convertible have front airbags plus side-impact airbags built into the front seats. Safety features include:
Electronic stability system
Pop-up roll bars in convertible
Front and rear parking sensors
Available parallel-parking assist
Available surround-view system
