I purchased a 2018 a little over a year ago. I live in Minnesota and searched nationwide for a model with Drive Assistance Plus, Parking Assistance Plus, heated rear seats and steering wheel, and HUD. Those were the ďmust havesĒ. I agree itís hard to believe a nearly $80K car is optioned without those features but consider that the bulk of the 640GTís were demo and loaner cars, not ordered by individuals.

I eventually found at CPO with the options I wanted in San Antonio for $48K and 12K miles. The window sticker was $78K. That was in March of 2019. It also has the comfort seating, is in M-sport trim, and has 20Ē staggered wheels. I bought it after having a pre-inspection done and flew down to buy it.

Since then Iíve put on over 25K miles. I bought it specifically for road trips: MN to Maine, MN to TX, MN to FL. Itís the *perfect* car for this use. Since itís CPO, it has an extra year of warranty and unlimited miles. I expect Iíll have nearly 100K miles on it by the time itís out of warranty. Iím lucky to have an independent BMW specialist nearby for routine maintenance. In the time Iíve bought it, I did have the passenger window regulator and the radiator grill shutter motor replaced under warranty at the dealer.

I was able to pick up a second set of BMW 19Ē wheels (non-staggered) for winter use. I ditched the summer run-flats as well on the 20Ē wheels for a set of Contiís and itís a lot quieter now and rides nicer.
My daughterís finance is 6í-2Ē and he finds the back seat very roomy. Plenty of leg and head room.

Itís so versatile. A great road trip car, Iíve also folded the rear seats and removed the privacy shelves, laid out a tarp, and put 18 bags of mulch in the back. With launch control and ľ tank of gas, Iíve pulled a couple of 4.8 second 0-60 runs.

Oh, and @Ronstein, Iím able to connect both my phone and my wifeís to iDrive and both can take calls. I found I can disable my wifeís phone for calls but still use hers to stream books. So you might want to check the configuration of your iDrive phone settings, because I know two phones can connect at the same time.
