Fast And Not Furious: 2006 BMW 650i Convertible E63

The E63 generation BMW 650i was a monstrously expensive convertible built in the time of monstrous excesses of Teddy Bear Stearns, Lehman Brodudes, and Merrill Lynchmob.   The green wave hadn't yet electrified much of the fleet and pedestrian impact standards had only slightly altered the pointy noses of supercars back in 2006 when this next car left the assembly line.  In the twelve years since driving off the dealer lot this car has lost more than seventy THOUSAND dollars of value to depreciation (excluding price of options, fees, gas guzzler tax, luxury tax, etc) but still looks like a million bucks to me. Find this 2006 BMW 650i Convertible offered for $8995 in Houston, TX via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

  1. Always loved these. Before I got my 392 Charger, this was one of the cars I searched high and low for used, but an M model. This generation of the 4.8 ltr naturally aspirated V8 was strong, reliable and fast. Still looks good after all these years to boot. If the VIN/history is clean, somebody is going to get a great car on the cheap.

  2. Am I the only one who remains very skeptical of good deals on used exotics coming out of Houston

    1. A history of the VIN should weed out most any issues, but I hear ya. What if damage was fixed without insurance, etc. A year has passed since Harvey though so enough time to check mileage and service intervals. If it had a claim date around Harvey (with low mileage in the last year to boot) I would run the other way.

    1. Sweet ride indeed! 156k is too high for any vehicle for me though... unless it's a 4-Runner.
