It looks like theBMW 650i will receive a more aggressive Sport Package (at least in the EU) similar to what is currently done with the 550i. This secondary refresh improves some of the controversial styling of the original look of the car and will be available for the coupe and convertible.
This Sport package includes an ///M tuned sports suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels, an exhaust system with more of a sporty sound and tailpipes in dark chrome. The newly contoured hood (similar to the look of the refreshed 3er) will lose the “mustache ” above the kidney grills, and also add glossy “shadowline ” trim around the windows. It is about time that the dirty upper lip was removed from the hood!
On the interior there will be more supportive sport seats, an M leather steering wheel, interior trim strips in aluminum, and an anthracite headliner.
Oh and last but not least: There appears to be the new iDrive. We have received conflicting information on the subject of whether the 5/6 will be getting the new system or not, but for the mean time lets just say at least this car for the photo shoot had the new system in it!
While this does create a more sporty appearance for the aging 6er it is not overly aggressive and does not really scream “sport ” as the implementation of this package does on the 550i. What do you think?
