Yeah, I may regret it, but I do think it's better without it, aesthetically.

The car came to the dealer with the spoiler still needing to be installed. Personally, I don't like the look of it, so I asked them not to install it. I can always add it later, but I'm glad I went...

One more thing...

I am planning to take delivery tomorrow, so I will take some additional pics with the new 20" winter set-up on the actual car.

We've always done the larger option wheel on our SUVs, which has always necessitated a winter set-up. Personally, I'm not a fan of non-OEM wheels on my cars, but even more than that, when you go with...

I haven't seen them on the car yet, as they were supposed to put them on today and I don't pick it up until Wednesday. (On Tuesday, it goes for tint on the front windows.) Anyway, I don't remember...

Black, full merino. I love the mocha/coffee leather, but it wasn't available in full merino, so I went with the traditional black.

I will say that I like Manhattan Green even more than I thought I...

2020 BMW X6 M50i -- She's Here!

With no forum for the new model, I guess I will post this here, even though this board looks like a ghost town, too. I know the X6 is "controversial" (code word for "ugly" in the minds of many, I...

I've purchased an embarrassing number of cars from the same dealership, so they typically do a great job for me. My salesman took all of the initial off-the-truck pictures for me, texting me as soon...

Oddly, I haven't been getting notifications on this thread, so I apologize for not following up on my original post.

As someone who owned several 6 Coupes and one 6GC, I can confirm that YES, the seats are MUCH improved in the M850i. The seats in my last 6ers were one of its weak points, I always believed. I was...

Absolutely. I was actually behind a brand new Lexus LC500 in the line at Starbucks today and thought about how much of a cross-shopped competitor the car probably is to my M850i coupe. Of course, I...

Ah, thanks. She's a four month old (brindle-colored) goldendoodle. She is, as my grandmother used to say, full of piss and vinegar.

On a BMW forum, you're bound to get a bit of bias, but it would seem to me that the M850i is more of a comfortable GT car that just so happens to be exceptionally fast, etc. (A recent review compared...

Option 1: Style 786M in Black,...
