2008 BMW 6 Series 635d Sport 3.0L turbo diesel from UK and Ireland


Fantastic looking, and 40mpg


The only thing that has gone wrong with the car since I've had it, is the windscreen washers were blocked up; these were replaced by BMW under warranty.

General Comments:

The car is very smooth. You can't tell the engine is a diesel.

The MPG is fantastic for such a big car, even when accelerating.

The quality of the interior is first rate.

The range on a tank is about 500 miles, which is brilliant.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

40 MPG? How? This car has a V8!! And the M Sport version has a V10!! There is no way a 6 series gets 40 MPG.

This is a 635d from the UK. In Europe, the 6 Series is available with a 3.0L straight six turbo diesel, which is entirely capable of 40mpg UK. Note that UK gallons are larger than US gallons, so 40mpg UK is 33mpg US.

The 635d has a 6 cylinder diesel engine, that's how it can do 40mpg+.
