Hello Luftpost.

Thanks.

You are right ... In Europe the diesel version is common in many cars of the medium-high range.

Fuel in Europe is terribly expensive. And to do many miles (kilometers in our case) is a highly valued option in the European mentality.

Especially when you can get economically to buy the car of your dreams, but you do not have enough that you do not care about the high price of maintaining the car giving it intensive daily use.

In my case, I prefer the gasoline engine. But I could not combine both situations economically .... If I bought the gasoline engine, I could not drive it every day ... And I wanted to take the 6 every day.

The sound of diesel engines is horrible .... But luckily for me, the sound of this diesel engine that BMW has made has almost no diesel engine sound. It is something unusual.


I'm glad you like Spain. It is certainly a beautiful country, with normally very cordial people, and incredible places to visit and enjoy the gastronomy.

I have not had the luck, or the opportunity, to be able to travel to the United States yet ... But it is in the family plans to travel to the USA.

Best regards

Hi Rasa.

I am aligned with your way of thinking.

I will also remap the engine.

In Spain the series 6 (Series F) are rare.

For some unknown reason, not many units were sold in Spain.

It is something that is very strange to me ... because it seems to me the most beautiful BMW that has ever been manufactured. (this is, of course, a personal opinion)

But, what is not a personal opinion, is that it is a car that is admired, and contemplated by many people ... It is a car that causes them to look at it and admire it.

The general opinion of the people I talk to ... praise the beauty of the car.

It is for this reason, that being considered by the majority, a very very beautiful car, so few units have been sold in many countries.

This does not worry me ... I like to have a car rarely seen in my country.

And I am one of those who think that this 6 series will remain in the future as one of the most beautiful cars that BMW has made.

The best price I found was at Turner Motorsport.
These are the floating center caps.
They are original BMW and have a BMW Group part number.
I got these about a year ago and I love them!
