2010 BMW 650 Reviews

Vehicle Overview
BMW's luxury two-door car, the 6 Series, competes with sports cars like the Jaguar XK, Mercedes-Benz SL and Porsche 911. A V-8 engine is standard, and BMW is one of the few carmakers in the segment to still offer a manual transmission; an automatic is also available. The high-performance, 6-Series-based M6 is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.

The 6-Series' lightweight construction makes ample use of aluminum and composite materials. An electronic stability system is standard.

New for 2010
There are no significant changes for 2010.

The coupe is long, low and wide and features a sculptured power-dome hood. Standard features include:

  • Swiveling bi-xenon headlights
  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Optional 19-inch alloys, dark chrome exhaust and a reshaped hood
  • Standard tilting panorama glass roof (coupes)
  • Retractable rear window (convertible)
  • Power soft-top (convertible)

Up to four occupants can fit inside the 2+2 coupe and the convertible. BMW's iDrive system uses a console knob to control multiple comfort and convenience functions. The system includes six "favorite" buttons that can save radio stations, navigation locations or phone numbers.
  • Standard full-leather interior, including seats and dashboard
  • Standard navigation system
  • Standard eight-speaker CD stereo
  • Optional upgraded stereo with full MP3 compatibility
  • Optional sport seats with adjustable thigh supports
  • Optional heated seats

Under the Hood
A 4.8-liter V-8 is standard; BMW's Sequential Manual Gearbox, offered in early editions of the 6 Series, has been dropped.
  • 360 horsepower, 360 pounds-feet of torque
  • Standard six-speed manual transmission
  • Optional six-speed automatic with paddle shifters
  • Rear-wheel drive

Most safety features are standard, but a few high-tech ones are optional.

  • Standard antilock brakes
  • Standard traction control and electronic stability system
  • Coupe includes front knee, chest, side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Convertible includes front knee, chest and side-impact airbags

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
