Great WOW Factor !
Pros: Handling,power and shifting
Cons: Gas gauge moves faster than the car.I had a 2005 BMW 645 Coupe for 5 years and love the 6 series. Replaced it with the new M6 Competition. This car has a bottomless accelerator. Far too much power for our Canadian highway speeds. Very tempting to fly ! The POWER button can be setup with the desired ride,HP, handling ratios. Then one can always be ready to launch it when needed. Sound system, Navigation system etc are superb.The twin clutch transmission needs getting used to.I use the paddles and the gear shift lever most times.Although it has it's quirks, I still prefer the Automatic to the 7 speed manual. The V10 I hear will disappear next redesign so wanted to have it !!
The V-10 that sings!
Pros: The sound and performance.
Cons: Fuel mileage.Wind up this baby and listen to hear her sing! The V-10 makes a higher pitch sound unlike a V-8. Of course, the performance is also incredible. This car can be a comfortable luxury driver or, by pushing the 'Sport' button, becomes a high performance screamer. The SMG transmission takes some getting used to. However, it is quite satisfactory. The I Drive is overly complicated and you'll have to read the owners manual. Quality of the build is typical of BMW and excellent. I have several late model high performance cars including a Cadillac CTS-V and a Nissan GT-R. The BMW M6 is my first choice for driving.
