The M Sport Edition offered for the BMW 6-Series is the perfect addition needed to fill the gap between the standard version and the more powerful M6. The problem is that the model is a little bit expensive. For example, a base 650i Coupe is priced at $86,200, while for the M Sport Edition price has been raised to $91,925.
