BMW has unveiled the mid-life LCI facelift for their entire 6 Series all at once today, down to the high performance M6 versions. The luxurious 6 Series range consists of a coupe, a convertible and a sexy four-door GranCoupe.

Engine variants are the same as the pre-facelift model – you’ll pick from a 640i, a 650i, and a 640d. What’s new are the availability of ‘lines’ – the Design Pure Experience and Design Pure Excellence lines that were introduced with the new BMW X5. They’re basically just different bits of trim.

Exterior-wise, the changes are pretty subtle – the press release goes to lengths to describe how the kidney grille bar count have been reduced by one, and the exhaust tail pipe diameter has been increased from 80 mm to 90 mm.

The good news is LED headlamps are now standard. There’s also a new 20 inch alloy wheel design and new colours – atoba metallic, Cashmere Silver metallic, Glacier Silver metallic, Mediterranean Blue metallic and Melbourne Red metallic.

The 6 Series never really looked outdated in the first place, so it’s understandable that BMW took a similiar approach to its facelift that it took with the F10 5 Series.

This is especially so with the 6 Series GranCoupe, which I personally think is the best ‘niche car’ that BMW has rolled out in the recent years, combining super sexy looks with the kind of plush ride that would properly an owner who is used to a 7-Series.
