Navigation system Professional with full-word voice entry.
Optimised to an even higher standard, navigation system Professional is a particularly important comfort highlight on the new BMW 6 Series Coupé and the new BMW 6 Series Convertible. Among other major features, the new system offers refined graphic presentation on its 8.8-inch Control Display.
Yet another important highlight of the new navigation system Professional is its particularly reliable voice entry exclusive to BMW cars. This allows the user to specify his destination by speaking out a complete word, thus entering the destination required very conveniently and quickly.
Also available as an option, the mobile preparation kit with its Bluetooth interface is able to connect a large number of commercially available Bluetooth-compatible mobile phones to the electronics of the BMW 6 Series without requiring any wires or cables. This, in turn, allows the driver and passengers to use their mobile phones in the car via the hands-off operating unit and multifunction buttons on the steering wheel, thus benefiting from superior comfort and safety. The telephone directory, call lists and other data are automatically compared and verified with the car’s on-board system, a snap-in adapter connecting the mobile phone with the car’s aerial and charging the phone at the same time.

For perfect sound quality: top-of-the-range audio systems.
High-quality audio systems and telematics functions serve to enhance grand touring comfort and driving pleasure in the new BMW 6 Series to an even higher standard.
Particular sound quality is guaranteed above all by the BMW Individual High End Audio System featuring future-oriented Dirac Live signal processing as its particular highlight. The digital 9-channel amplifier with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) develops maximum output of no less than 825 Watt.
Supplemented by speed-related volume control and speed-related equalising, and incorporating top-end loudspeakers, the system sets the standard in terms of sound reproduction, its brilliant quality of sound guaranteeing supreme music pleasure on all seats in the BMW 6 Series.
Featured as standard, the AUX-In bush provides an additional option to connect external audio sources. In addition, there is also an optional USB interface for particularly convenient use of an external MP3 player in the car, meaning that all versions of the Apple iPod can be completely integrated in the BMW 6 Series’ audio system, with their functions masterminded either by iDrive or via the multifunction buttons on the steering wheel.
This wide range of multi-media functions is rounded off by the BMW Online mobile internet portal and the BMW Assist telematics service. One example of BMW Online is the Convertible Weather Service telling the driver whether he will presumably be able to drive his BMW 6 Series Convertible with the roof down on the next day or whether to expect rain.
The new BMW 6 Series is also available with BMW TeleServices offering the BMW customer a universal range of services from the BMW Group.
The only prerequisite is that the car is equipped with a telephone and navigation system.
Sending out a BMW Teleservice Call, the car automatically transmits all information of importance for the workshop to the customer’s BMW Service Partner for the next inspection.


Leather upholstery with SunReflective Technology on the Convertible.
One of the particular highlights on the BMW 6 Series Convertible is the use of newly developed, very special leather on the seat upholstery and interior trim. In this case so-called “cool pigments” integrated into the leather serve to reflect infra-red radiation in the sunlight. Such pigments in a different colour thus very effectively prevent any excessive overheating of the seat surfaces in the open car, an unpleasant phenomenon otherwise often experienced particularly in perfect convertible weather.
To limit excessive temperatures on the seats and armrests, BMW is the first car maker in the world to use SunReflective Technology for the treatment of leather surfaces. Compared with conventional leather, this may reduce the difference in temperature on the surface in the case of dark colours by up to 20 °C – and even with light upholstery, the heating effect is significantly smaller. All other features and properties of the leather upholstery naturally remain unchanged, without any effect on their quality.
Direct contact with the sunshine and the wind rushing by is a truly heavenly experience in the BMW 6 Series Convertible, although the BMW 6 Series Coupé is also remarkably light and offers clear visibility inside thanks to the unusually large glass panorama vent roof available as an option and giving the interior of the Coupé a particularly generous and bright ambience.
Apart from its large dimensions of 806 x 578 millimetres or 31.7 x 22.8´´, this glass roof stands out in particular through its electrically adjustable interior lining in aluminium sandwich structure for superior climate comfort and noise control, with hardly any reduction of headroom for the car’s occupants.

Personal style of the highest standard: BMW Individual.
The wide range of options offered by BMW Individual offers perfect conditions for even greater refinement of the car’s looks and features. Offering exclusive paintwork, interior trim and upholstery variants, BMW Individual ensures the highest standard of personal style for the customer in creating his – or her – very own BMW 6 Series Coupé or Convertible.
New paintwork options now available from BMW Individual are Dioxide Black, Aventurin Silver, and Brilliant White metallic, the last option being applied as an innovative four-layer finish complete with a special pearl effect and ensuring particularly attractive interaction with the daylight surrounding the car.
Special highlights within the interior, finally, are provided by new interior trim in Red Brown Olive.
An extremely tasteful combination of exterior and interior components offered by the BMW Individual programme is the Virtuoso composition. Inter alia, this unique combination comprises BMW Individual paintwork in Moonstone metallic or Ruby Black metallic combined in each case with high-gloss Satin Chrome Line, BMW Individual light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design, Merino all-leather upholstery in Platinum or Criollo Brown tailored in each case to the exterior paintwork of the car, and BMW Individual roof lining.
Last but certainly not least, both the Coupé and Convertible come with interior trim in Black piano paint and instrument string inlays, a BMW Individual leather steering wheel with wood ring inlays in Black piano paint, velour footmats embroidered in musical clef design, as well as an aluminium Controller for the iDrive system with laser engraving also in the design of a musical clef.
And perfect sound appropriate for such an exclusive look is ensured, last but not least, by the BMW Individual High End Audio System.
