Editor's Overview

The 2015 BMW 6 Series gets a new high-performance model this year: the Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe. With an upgraded engine and suspension, the B6 bridges the gap between the standard Gran Coupe and the even higher-performance M6 Gran Coupe. The rest of the coupe and convertible lineup carries on the tradition of sophisticated driving pleasure.

This vehicle has great performance. My biggest issues is with the high performance tires. The roads in my area cause me to constantly purchase new tires. That is the only issue related to this vehicle. It drives well and was a great purchase. I have driven other vehicles in the past and this vehicle is by far the best.

Great performance, beautiful, reliable. Economic.. Good warranty by manufacturer.. Love the ride especially when driving with the top down and the fact that is a hard top that will last forever.
