The 650i is bulky and slow (and not that attractive), so your friend might as well get something practical. I've got an M3 and a 2008 RRS SC (and a 2011 RRS SC on order), so it's not like I'm biased against BMW. As for reliability, my Range has had no more problems than the M3 (maybe even fewer).
haha.. I actually contemplated the 6 series.. M6 actually. I love my range rover sport S/C.. couldn't be happier. The ultimate Urban Assault Vehicle. I've exited my warranty now and have NO worries. No problems during warranty nor after. You search the web and of course your going to find problems on the RRS.. its the web. Its our 'free' psychologist. Easier to talk about problems than positive things.
So yeah.. depends on his needs. I couldn't be happier. Not a nicer SUV out there. Again.., I have a dog so my choice was easy. He just kicks it back there and has plenty of room.
funny. my dad actually just bought a 645 for his wife and a Range (not supercharged) for himself. i drove both and enjoyed them both. probably the range a little bit more. the 645 just felt like a boat. but then again i'm used to driving my clk 430 hwell:
650 all day. I've had mine for almost 2 years. Such a great car and it rides awesome. I suggest some KW v3 coilovers and keep most of it stock. I have only had regular maintenance on mine so far. I did just replace the tires with some Nitto INVOs and wow they are such an improvement over the stock runflats in noise and ride quality.
