Amen to that.

BTW, Southern, do you recall if that carbon black vert was a 640? The online configuror doesn't let you combine a 650 carbon black M-sport with convertible... But it does for the 640. Weird.

Edit- according to the pic, the rectangle exhaust indicates that it should be a 650... If you look closely

I think those wheels are also exclusive to 650 M Sports. The 640 has a different 20" rim, I believe...

Wait, are you saying that BMW is publishing false information?!?!?!?! Especially regarding the 2012 6er?!?!

Their team really fell apart with getting their facts straight. I did, however, complain about the non-auto trunk, no soft-close, and no shadowline (especially the great expense aftermarket for something that should be included in a $4400 package) in my post-purchase survey where it asks about suggestions for BMW engineers. The dealer and sales team were great, I figured this was a good chance to voice some of these problems in a form that has a chance of being read by someone who might care - for half a second before it gets thrown into a stack with 100 other surveys lol.

According to the website, you can configure those 20" wheels (373M) on a 640 but who the hell really knows, right lol. Not even BMW. But Carbon Black is not a color option at all for the 650 Vert. Interesting.

I really hope they read the survey. I mean, who knows what the consumer wants more than the consumer. I think it's safe to assume that the majority would like the Shadowline on their M-Sport, soft-close and auto trunk. That's old stuff for BMW. How they didn't add that to their new 83K+ 6er is beyond me.

Thanks! I found another set of kidneys on ebay and have them plastidipped, I think it turned out great.

Did you change out the brakes? I see the ///M logo on the front brakes in the 6th picture. Haven't seen those before.

no, no changes on the brakes, mine came like that I have black calipers with silver M logos on the fronts, I thought it was just part of the M sport kit.

Mine are plain gloss black without a logo or anything

I guess they changed that recently. Yours is the first (at least on a F12/F13) that I've seen with them. I recognized them as they look like the aftermarket/upgraded brakes for the new F30 as well as the new M6.

Just a bit jealous... haha

interesting... mine is not that new, came in mid-January, early/mid December production. It was a custom order, where I added the M kit last minute with a call to Germany... Don't be jealous, I don't' think there is anything M about them, I thought it's just for the looks I'll take some close up photos tomorrow for us to compare.

Very interesting. Mine went into production around the 20th of December, and I took delivery January 31st. It's weird that there is a difference, especially since our cars are basically identical (CB M Sport, xDrive, ARS, 373M wheels, etc.) other than yours being a convertible and having the cinnamon interior.

I was actually thinking to get it removed/painted black, it just shines through the wheels. I actually even had the S0320 - "model designation deletion" option on my order. I like the lean & clean look lol!

Very nice ride indeed!!!

Plasti-Dip only comes in matte, right? I definitely want a black grille on mine like you and Jonny, but still deciding between gloss and black. I think I may go gloss to match the gloss black wheels (I plan on doing) and the stock gloss Shadowline trim.

Speaking of which, your Shadowline trim looks matte as well. Did you Plasti-Dip that too or am I seeing things?

Also, is that "model designation deletion" option a joke or are you serious? Lol. What else can they do when you custom order??? Just when I thought I did all my research...

I better stop looking for these things before I drive my sales manager crazy with last minute changes. Haha

regular plastidip is matte but they recently came up with some new enhancers glossifier, metallizer etc., so you basically do the matte and then put couple of layers of glossifier to make it glossy black or metalizer to make it like gun metal (http://www.youtube.com/user/DipYourC.../2/2INDcL22Twk).

The shadow line trims are not plastidipped they are painted matte black because of the rest of the black trim pieces (i.e. underneath the mirror caps, windshield strip, folding top cover etc.) are matte I thought it'll blend in better.

I'm not joking about the model designation deletion, option 320 or S0320 - Modellschriftzug Entfang. I even pushed for soft-close doors - S0323 but they refused, I don't know if I was too late or because it was a U.S. spec car but I heard this years' models will have it as standard at some point. There is some interesting stuff too like S0XL1 (wood inlay for the steering wheel matching the interior wood trim). These don't show up on U.S. order form but they can always request it, it's up to Germany to say yay or nay. I'll find the list.

Yes, I think the matte trim does look better on the convertible, especially with the folding top cover.

I wonder why they are so stingy with options that we should be able to have, considering other models have them. It's not like they have to fabricate something new. It's already there!

Also, nice touch on the black/white roundels

Thanks for the link!

It seems like letting us pay for the extra options would just be extra cash in their pockets. Not quite sure how that works. If someone has a plausible explanation I'd love to know.

That is a gorgeous car. Even my wife thinks it's sexy. I told her that I think you're driving mine. It looks almost exactly like what I ordered.

The Shadowline trim on the vert boot is a definite improvement over the chrome. Nice choice!

+1 matte looks good. Gloss would be cool to see too.
