Mein Auto: 2014 M6 Coupe
So three years ago I picked up one of the very early production 550i's, DHP/SAT/SPT/Etc., and thought I'd be keeping as a DD for 5-6 years, that is until about a year ago I drove a friends 650i. Same comfort/luxury of the 5's but the driving dynamics just blew the 5's away. That in turn led me to drive an M6 and convinced me that this is the perfect DD; the perfect blend of comfort, luxury and spirited driving.

So about 6 weeks ago I call my CA, he has an allocation coming up, pull the trigger and it went into production the very next day.

Space Grey, Black Interior (not full), Gray Poplar Trim (love this with black), Drivers Assistance, Executive, and the 20" wheels.

I'm still in the break in period, so will reserve comments about the driving (which is several times better than the 650 as the 650 was to the 550), but a few other comments:

Active Seats: They s... , aren't very comfortable. And as of now, this is my only complaint.

Ventilated Seats: Fantastic, wasn't expecting them to actually cool as they do.

M DCT: While I thought the 8-Sd in the 550 was superb, this is truly an automated manual. The message about shutting down the car in neutral is the only thing that isn't right, it's that perfect.

Various Options...: Having so much enjoyment just driving it that I don't believe I've tried most of the other options. ASS is an appropriate acronym, thank heavens it defaults to last setting.

Only changes I've made so far is the US Mill Works front bracket and installed my VBox et al (ordered it de-badged). Wheels next (moreso to lower weight), and by then I'll think of something else. Again, it's my daily driver and I drive a lot, so mod time is a subtraction to drive time, and that's bad.

This M6 is making me smile, just as my first BMW (a used 2002Ti) did not quite 40 years ago.
