Post ALL 6 Series Changes from July Production

New for all models of the BMW 6 Series: No Passing Info display.

The new function No Passing Info supplements Speed Limit Info from BMW ConnectedDrive. It serves to avoid potentially hazardous overtaking manoeuvres by identifying signposted routes on which overtaking is banned and when the ban is lifted.

New: BMW 6 Series Coupe with Auto Start Stop function.

With effect from 2012, the top model of the 6 Series Coupe, the BMW 650i xDrive, will be equipped as standard with the Auto Start Stop function. Being an integral part of BMW EfficientDynamics measures, fuel consumption will be significantly reduced as a result. The engine is automatically switched off as soon as the vehicle comes to a halt at a red light, in a traffic jam or at a level crossing, for example. When the driver releases the brake, the engine restarts automatically, allowing the journey to be continued.

  • N63 Technical Update for V8 TwinPower Turbo Engine (650i models only):
  • Increase to 445 hp, 480 lb-ft of torque (+45 hp, +30 lb-ft of torque)
  • Auto Start/Stop functionality (added to 650i models; already on 640i) Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO standard on all models.


The price of the Individual Composition Package (ZI1) has been decreased by $1,300 to $6,400 for the Coupe and $5,700 for the Convertible. 20” wheels are no longer included in the package price, but are offered as a $1,300 upgrade to the 19” wheels that are included in ZI1.
