can we get a few pic's of those who have taken delivery of their F12/F13 650's? Be nice to see the contrasting color variations in one thread.

I'll start with Space Gray/Vermillon Red. Post em up 6'ers:thumbup:

Here's mine at the Welt in Münich - this will have to do until the car is redelivered to me next month.

Took my 650 in for service so I took some pics of the cars on the lot for you, including a White with Beige *Top*.

I also got a peek at the first 650 Coupe in South Florida (Pics below). Man that car is B-E-A-Utiful!. I am seriously considering a coupe next instead of a Vert...

Appreciate the coupe pics, TopDownInFL! I'm still torn on the M-Sport kit. Can't wait to see it in the metal, so I can make some decisions.

I dunno - increased rev limiter and alcantara headliner with some different shoes doesn't sound like a bargain to me.

Are the fender vents different on that coupe?

As luck would have it I happened to take a very close look at the fenders of both today. They are different.

Yeah, my gut impulse has been to skip the M-Sport package. I don't think I'm a fan of the body kit and, since I want to stick with 19s, I prefer the standard rim over the 19" wheel included with M-Sport. And, I found out that I can special-order the dark headliner ($475), which I will definitely do.

I meant between the coupe and convertible. it was in the detail and may not be obvious. The vert happened to be up on a roundtable so I got a close look at the foglamp housing. It was distinctly different.

I just went to the bmwusa site. This coupe looks like it has an M-style front fender. The website shows the coupe and vert with the same fender.

That is the "M-Sport" kit in Top Down's pics:) Notice the different front air dam, split spoke rims, and the flat gray/black lower rear valance and tail pipes..That coupe looks pretty nice IMHO

Ahhhh - so THAT'S why it costs $4400. OK. Well worth the $ then. It looked tremendously hot.

Yeah, I'm with you now. That's the M kit, which I don't think I am a fan of. When you said "fender," I was looking at the side of the car over the wheel wells and not seeing a difference.

I like the front lip and those LED headlights are off the charts. A must.

And great pic having another 6 with the standard front lip in the background for comparison.

I'm going to go test-drive the red car in the picture over the weekend, then plan (assuming the test-drive doesn't disappoint) to order a December production coupe.

I'm not sure why, or if it will change once I see it in person, but the M kit just doesn't appeal to me at all. It looks droopy or something. And I normally am a fan of M kits (have that option on my 535), so I'm as surprised as anyone.

The LED lights do look killer. My problem with them is that the only way to option them is to get a package that contains the lights and 20" wheels (2 choices, depending on whether you went for the M kit). The 20s look great, of course, but then you get summer tires. I'd rather have my xDrive coupe with 19" A/S tires, I think.

Decisions, decisions.

Actually, that was exactly where I meant when I originally posted. The vent looks different on the MSport coupe than on my vert. I can't tell if the insert is just different or the fender different all together.

I went and check out that White M-Sport Coupe today. They want "all the money" for that car - MSRP = $110,000.00 USD I guess the owner is taking his/her time to take delivery. There was also a Deep Sea Blue M-Sport Coupe for waiting for delivery as well. The "DSB" coupe didn't have the LED headlights. Those LED headlights are something else up close. In my opinion they are the best looking LED headlights of any manufacturer on the market currently. There is a lot of detail in the lamp housings, very complex and high tech looking.

I set up the settings of the B&O audio in that car if no one else messed with it. Sound is incredible. M sport is a must!

Thanks. I added a few more pictures to my prior post and to this one. The B&O system rocks, it even has adjustable lighting on the speakers. The big issue is what media to play: Pandora, Sirius, HD Radio, Iphone, Web Radio, CD's, DVDs/iphone videos (When in Park). The car is awesome!

The LED lights look awesome and it was nice last night to have my car parked in front of the restaurant. I guess the guys in CL550 parked behind my 650speakers wasn't as happy.

I am REALLY happy with the Carbon Black Metallic. I had blue metallic on my old '87 M6 when I was dating my wife. She mentioned how it takes her back.

Now if I can only get my messages from my iphone or BB Torch!

Very Nice - thanks for posting the additional photos. You say the B&O speakers are illuminated - is ithe speaker surrounds, Thats interesting tech.

Yeah with regards to the CL, the new 6 makes basically all of the Benz's, save the SLS, and arguably the new CLS look dated. For the CLS this is only the case because of the LED headlights on offer. Interior wise the 6 pushes them all of a cliff.

So know the guys in the CL don't want to see you;)

In my 6 messages from my Torch show up without problem. I am having an issue with video playback from my IPOD touch though. Strange thing is in my MINI all of the stuff links right up - and video playback from the IPOD touch works seamlessly with the "included" Y-Cable - go figure:rolleyes:
