2008 BMW 6-Series Features

Features

The 2008 BMW 6-Series comes as either a convertible or as a coupe. Edmunds notes standard features include 18-inch wheels, leather, 12-way power front seats, Bluetooth, and eight-speaker CD audio. Navigation is standard, as well as power features, and convertibles get power-operated fabric tops.

Two option packages dress up the 6-Series. Sport cars get sport seats, 19-inch wheels and distinct trim, while a cold-weather package adds a heated steering wheel and heated seats. Free-flow options include satellite radio, upgraded leather, variable-ratio steering, adaptive cruise control, keyless ignition, and a head-up display.

The features of the 2008 BMW 6-Series can make any car fanatic smile with delight—with the exception of iDrive.

BMW's iDrive system runs navigation, climate, and audio systems. It has six memory presets that help drivers grow used to its knob-controller interface. It's a love-hate prospect; the minimalist controls remove a lot of long-standing, commonly understood interfaces such as a volume knob. At the same time the system forces drivers that might not be familiar with the interface to use it-or else. Edmunds says the latest version of iDrive is better than previous versions, and says it offers voice commands as a third input option.
