I was planning on lowering with H&R springs. Looks great on yours. Do you have wheel spacers too?

Went in for service. Took a few interior pics. The brown is in a 650 and the Sakhir Orange from an M6.

I saw Zandvoort Beige on an M6 today, and beige has never looked less beige. I had to go to bmwusa.com to determine whether or not it's an Individual color (because I'm too stupid to look at the sticker ), which it isn't. Zandvoort looked a lot like what I imagine Champagne (Individual) looks like. The oak trim, which I typically like, somehow looked less special in this car.

I was very impressed by the full Merino option (the only way Zandvoort comes) as every surface that is plastic, albeit high quality plastic, in our 6ers (non-Individual) is covered in Merino - glovebox door, lower portion of the doors, the lining of the door pockets!!! Sheesh! I'd rather have the furry, velvety stuff in our pockets as conditioning door pocket interiors would annoy even me. For the record, Itinj, this is where I draw the line for what qualifies as too much leather. I know you were wondering

I also found there to be very little difference between Merino and Nappa. I think I'd be hard pressed to tell a difference between the two. The feel, thickness, and texture look very similar.

Didn't notice the wheel type.

That M6 was impressive and seeing that showroom new white M6 makes me realize how desperately I need to get my car polished.

Kinda cracks me up that they do a model deletion on the white M6 and then throw a big Vista badge on the back... That sure would have to go.

What did you think of the frozen silver in person? Can't really decide but don't think it would do it for me.

lol. Didn't notice the delete 'til you mentioned it. I think the Vista badge is much more impressive than the M6, IMHO.

I noticed the badge delete instantly and Vista normally doesn't put a sticker on the higher end cars so I was very surprised to see it.

As for the frozen silver? Stunning in person to look at, but would not want to own.

Nothing like owning the world's only BMW Vista.
