2010 BMW 6 Series Values & Cars for Sale | Kelley Blue Book (2023)

High-powered, high-profile and highly desirable, the 2010 BMW 650i makes an exclusive statement in a very exclusive realm. While a few of its styling details may be open to some rather heated debate, there’s no denying that this 2+2 offers a stunning driving experience for those who can afford its price of entry. A potent V8 engine, superbly responsive chassis and exceptional amenities make it a serious competitor to prestige coupes from Audi, Jaguar, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, in many cases delivering more absolute performance for considerably less money when comparably equipped.

Used 2010 BMW 6 Series Pricing

The 2010 BMW 650i Coupe’s Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starts close to $80,000, while the Convertible begins at about $86,000. Both can surpass $100,000 when fully-loaded. Currently, buyers are paying close to full MSRP for this vehicle, but Fair Purchase Prices, that represent prices consumers are actually paying at any moment, can differ substantially, so click on the Fair Purchase Prices to compare. Like many other BMW products, the 650i holds its value well over time. It’s projected to retain better-than-average resale values over a five-year period, performing better than the similarly priced Jaguar XK, but not as well as the Audi A5 and S5 Coupes.

Driving the Used 2010 BMW 6 Series

The 2010 BMW 650i shares basic chassis elements with the 5 Series Sedan, but its 4.3-inch shorter wheelbase and slightly wider rear track dimension add an extra measure of agility and surefootedness, while a host of computerized "active" control elements – from stability to traction to the anti-roll bars themselves – ensures it maintains that superb composure on virtually any kind of road. Although the suspension is tuned more for control than pure comfort, the 650i is still a first-rate cruiser. The silky 360-horsepower V8 takes it from zero to 60 mph in just about 5.5 seconds, regardless of whether it’s backed by the conventional six-speed manual or the Sport six-speed automatic.

Interior Comfort

Comfort and convenience touches abound inside the 650i Coupe and Convertible, headed by its well-contoured power bucket seats and on-board computer and navigation system. Standard Dakota leather upholstery is set off with high-tech Pearl-gloss Ruthenium accent trim, but BMW offers Olive Ash Red Brown, Dark Birch or Maple wood as no-charge alternatives for buyers with more traditional tastes. Even with its rakish roofline, the 650i has sufficient room for taller drivers up front, although some may find that the steering wheel rim obscures the tops of the gauge faces, even when adjusted to its full-up position. Rear seats are typical 2+2 fare – scaled strictly for kids, and smaller ones at that.

Exterior Styling

One of the most expressively styled BMWs, the 650i maintains the long, low nose and short rear-deck treatments that have characterized other classic coupes and convertibles from this marque, but incorporates lots of aluminum and thermoplastic panels to help reduce weight. Its laid-back windshield and sweeping roofline are smartly complemented by bold fender flares that add to the aggressive character. The Convertible distinguishes itself with a fully-lined one-touch power top and power-retractable back glass element. Although the 650i’s tail treatment and trunk lid remain points of minor controversy for some, its overall visual impact – especially when fitted with the optional Sport Package that bumps the wheel and tire fitment from 18-inch to 19-inch alloy rims with even larger, lower-profile tires – is undeniably impressive.

Favorite Features

Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go
The 6 Series’ available radar-based cruise control will detect a slower-moving vehicle ahead and reduce speed accordingly. New for this year, the system will slow the car to a complete stop, enabling use in stop-and-go traffic.

6-speed Sport Automatic Transmission
We especially like this faster-shifting automatic, which includes paddle shifters and rev matching for smooth downshifts.

Standard Features

The 2010 BMW 650i’s standard features include a dual automatic climate control system, DVD-based navigation with iDrive integrated controller, a multifunction steering wheel, power tilt and telescoping steering column, programmable keyless remote entry, corner-following xenon Adaptive Headlights, Adaptive Brake Lights (that indicate your stopping intensity to vehicles following behind), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), electronically-modulated Active Roll Stabilization, Dynamic Driving Control (that quickens throttle and shift responses), advanced anti-lock brakes, run-flat tires and a no-charge choice between a six-speed manual or six-speed Sport automatic transmission. Dual front and front-side airbags, BMW’s Head Protection System and Active Knee Protection airbags are also standard equipment.

Factory Options

Owners can personalize the 650i with Active Steering (that makes it easier to maneuver in confined areas and adds more confident feel at higher speeds), Comfort Access automatic locking and unlocking, distance-maintaining Active Cruise Control, a premium Logic7 Surround Sound audio system, High Definition Radio, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Head-Up Display and thermal imaging Night Vision. A Cold Weather Package (heated front seats and steering wheel and a ski bag) and a Sport Package (19-inch alloy wheels with performance tires, sport bucket seats with adjustable thigh support and Shadowline exterior trim) also are available, as are choices from BWM’s Individual packages.

Engine & Transmission

The 2010 BMW 650i’s all-aluminum 4.8-liter V8 makes an outstanding 360 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque. It incorporates both variable valve timing and variable valve lift to help optimize performance throughout a wide rev range, delivering super-quick response and respectable fuel economy with either of the available six-speed transmissions. Near-silent at idle, the engine emits a beautifully rich and throaty roar at full throttle, thanks in part to a movable element in the exhaust system that imparts an edgier character to the sound under higher load conditions. For maximum enthusiast appeal, the electronically-controlled automatic also offers racing-style, steering wheel-mounted paddle shift levers.

4.8-liter V8
360 horsepower @ 6300 rpm
360 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3400 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 15/22 (coupe, manual), 15/23 (coupe, automatic), 14/21 (convertible, manual), 15/23 (convertible, automatic)

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

(Video) This is why a 2006-2010 BMW 650i is still the best choice for a convertible under $20k

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
