I do think though that the 6, to me, is a hybrid of a 7 and a M Coupe/Z, using the M Coupe/Z lines with 7 size.. But that's just my 2 cents

For the record I own a 3 as well, so i'm not bashing on them ^_^!

but 6's are still dead sexy!

Yeah I agree. Like I said in my first post the interior fit and finish is comperable to the 7 series where the 5 series is more like a 3 series. The 7 gets the technology first and filters down to the 6. Then they decide what gets beyond that and what they want to keep exclusive to the flagship models.
