What exactly is the differences between the 6 and 5 series ( besides the obviously exterior body)

Are these cars made from the same chassis, same suspension parts, and steering?

Is 6 essentially a 5 series coupe?

They do share the same chassis. The M5 has the same motor. So the cold hard line answer is yes. But in reality, the 650i in how it drives, how it looks, how you feel driving in a class all its own.

I have a "ragtop". It is actually a hybrid metal/cloth thing that is as quiet as a hardtop when it is up and folds away so cleanly. The view from the back seat is amazing.

I have had the privilege of driving some very nice cars. This one, there is just something about it. It corners with no body roll, its quiet, its powerful. The attention to detail, the smoothness of the ride, man I could go on forever.

I highly recommend a convert 6 speed get as many toys as you can. silly but fun. live a little.
