Beautiful pics. How many kilometers did you have on your car when you made your high speed run to 188mph?

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

Many thanks, FalconFlyer. I have never gone the sealant route but your M6 really looks great in the photo. I am investigating the products you recommended and will probably try it soon. Thanks again.

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.

Looking good, Man. Welcome to the M6 club. The active seats do have less padding than the regular seats to make room for all the a/c and active mojo stuff. I think the heavier you are the more you...

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.

Cs650i
You left out a word in your response that would help me. The re-engineered pads will be released "in the next ??? Or two". Can you say in the next week/month/ or when? Thanks.

Low speed brake squeal

Picked up my new M6 a couple of weeks ago with 32 miles on it. After taking ownership and at about 100 miles, the brakes squeal when coming to a gentle stop in traffic. So I think maybe the brakes...

Slippin into the M6

Hey Guys,
I've traded the 2012 650i coupe for a new '14 M6. And Southern6er, I got the B&O sound system. We're keeping the Gran Coupe as the wife's car so I'm still peeking at the 6 series post.

Finally made the leap to the M6 from the 2012 650i cps this week. I think I'm going to like the beast.:D
