I will agree with tt on this point; the 6 is well thought out and the next 100 large I have sitting around collecting dust in CD's is going for a 6 series, an M6 would be quite nice indeed.
Oh well, we'll have to agree to disagree on this. I don't think the iDrive screen on the F30 looks like an afterthought and I like the "design language" carryover of the buttress from the 6er and the E60 5er.

Bangle is responsible for the E46 design.

It's obvious they can do it on the 6er. Just doing that would go a long way in unifying
things and give it a "well thought out" look.

Kat, that goes back to the E9x if not earlier.
