Beautiful indeed.
I notice you have the M fender badge like the Euro models have. Is that something that US models now come with if the competition version is ordered?

Horsepower ratings

I see some references to the M850i horsepower as 523 and some places at 530. Is one for the US and the other Euro spec? Are these numbers measured at the crank or the wheel? Does anybody know? Thanks.

I owned a 650i coupe, 650i GC, and M6 coupe. When the 850i was introduced, I did a big groan at the sight of it. Huge increase in price but the same old look as the rest of the line up. Fast forward...

Oil specs

I agree. Last oil change was to 0W-30 and I questioned why here in SC BMW would go with such a low vis oil. Service manager told me it was across the board for BMW to 0W-30. I also have a 2014 M6 and...

I totally agree. There shouldn't be any signs of a leak. Take it in to the dealer before you try any brake burn-in to be safe.
