"Terrifying" is the perfect way to describe the road from Como to Bellagio. Definitely one of the most beautiful places on earth, but I would not return driving my own big fat BMW. When I go back, it...

Great post. Brings back a lot of memories of previous ED's. When I drove around Lake Como, it was terrifying; driving a fat 550 on 1.5 lane-width two-way roads; I can not believe I made it without a...

Thanks. I love the Six from the front. And with the top down, it is a sweet looking car. I like the looks of the M4 vert a lot; but to the untrained eye, it looks pretty close to a 435.

Thanks for the quote attribution.

For what it's worth, this is my third Six series, and I've had multiple M's and 3's and 5's. Other than this most recent experience, I had virtually no problems...

Thank you. A lot of good points. I've come to the realization that there is no car that does it all. But I really only want one car (though I have a couple of nice classic, non-daily-driver cars). I...

I would not totally agree. Yes, I did not like that the car was in for service repeatedly, but the problems were not directly related to the performance of the car. Secondly, while I probably would...

Goodbye 640 M-Sport Convertible, Hello M4 Convertible

I am sorry to say I just got rid of my 2014 640 M-Sport vert after a little over a year. While I think the Six is a great car, and maybe the nicest combination of luxury and sport out there, I...

I've stayed at both (but it's been a few years). They are both excellent, but the Imperial is, well, a little more "Imperial"; more elegant, more refined, and more formal; I would say it is a half a...

I did not like the Platzl at all. I had a bad room and an unpleasant stay. The Charles is excellent, and is in a different league (and generally priced accordingly).
