The M6 handles better than the M5. The weight difference and handling set up made the M6 my choice. Drive the two one after the other and see if that helps you decide. If you need a back seat, then...

Agree, Doug 999. I have the 2013 650i GC M sport with aluminum trim. I think it looks much better, especially in black sapphire metallic, with the aluminum trim. Makes it look longer and more elegant.

Love the B&O sound system myself but I'm not sure if the extra money would be worth it in a convertible. The color combo is dynamite. Love it in the Vert.

Welcome aboard, Mate! I'm loving the new "beast" in the garage. It is a very different drive than the 6er and I like it

Good news. After the car had the interstate trip up to the BMW Performance center, the brakes must have seated for I have had no more issues with them. The sound of silence is just perfect.

Carbon fiber roof care

Anyone have suggestions on whether to wax the carbon fiber roof on our new M6s? If so, what product would be best? Thanks.

I couldn't be more pleasesd with mine. The exclusivity is something I find very appealing. The Mercedes or Audi doesn't hold a candle to the GC when it comes to styling, IMO.

Thanks CharlesHill. Mine have begun to quiet down a bit after a two hundred mile interstate trip. Maybe they are getting seated properly.
