BMW has announced that, come 2009, 6 Series customers will be able to tick the box for a new 'Edition Sport' package. Comprising both visual and performance components, BMW explained that the Edition Sport package is "aimed at enhancing driving dynamics and adding a more sporting appearance".
For an additional ??1500-2000 ($3200-$4300), buyers will receive a restyled bonnet, new lightweight 19" wheels, stiffer anti-roll bars and the same anti-roll stabilisation system used in the M6. Brushed aluminum trim will be added to the interior, while fog lights and the choice of two new exterior colours will liven up the exterior. Imola Red and Carbon Black will be added to the options list - which are new to the 6 Series - to bring the palette selections up to seven in total.
Buyers of the 650i will also benefit from a sports exhaust designed to "enhance engine breathing and aural pleasure". No word on how much power this addition will add.
This seems like a good value offering from BMW. Let's face it, if you can afford a 6 Series then a few extra dollars for improved handling, aesthetics and possibly power - while retaining the factory warranty - will be money well spent.
