BMW 6 Series range gets kit updates for 2017
BMW adds a range of optional styling and equipment upgrades to 6 Series Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe.
BMW is aiming to give its 6 Series range a boost into the new year with a new raft of optional equipment. The luxury coupe, four-door and convertible can be specced with new colours, wheels and interior design elements.
The brightest addition is the option of new Sonic Speed Blue metallic paint, while all three bodystyles also have the choice of 20-inch ‘M-Light’ alloy wheels with a bi-colour finish and double-spoke design. Runflat tyres are a further option with this wheel choice.
Previously reserved only for the M6, any 6-Series with the M-Sports styling package can be specced with carbon-fibre trim finishers for the dash and doors.
The updates aren’t extensive, despite this year marking 40 years since the first 6 Series was launched. After the original car went out of production in 1989, a successor carrying the badge didn’t reappear until 2003. The model is now on its third generation with only minor revisions having been made since the current car launched in 2011.
