BMW 6-series buyers will have to wait longer than expected to take delivery because of a faulty alarm system. Reader David Ross was due to take delivery of a 645Ci next week, but has been told by his dealer that he may have to wait up to eight weeks while new alarm sensors arrive from Germany. According to sources, up to 280 coupé and cabrio models may be affected, but BMW is claiming that the wait may be shorter than expected.
