Excellent write up! I just picked up an M6 in October and now am considering the B7. The local dealer has one in white but its a 2007 model.
I will be coming out of a 2005 CL65 and I am sure what I lose in power, I will gain in steering and handling. As fast as my CL is, there is that numbness that drives me crazy. I still have to test drive the car before I finalize anything but the dealer is closed now and wont reopen until the 2nd.

Jerry is doing well! Thanks for asking everyone. Just been very very busy with family and driving of course. Car is doing fine. Its the best daily driver I've ever had. I love it. Even in the snow with snow tires it can get along well. Hope you fellas are all well and are surviving The Great Recession ok. Btw- I saw another thread on tire blow outs. You do have to watch out for road hazards but, that said, I have over 18000 miles on mine and so far Ive had 2 blow outs, one due to a road hazard early on in its life that totaled the rim and I am glad I bought the wheel and tire insurance, and another which the dealer caused by accidentally hitting a curb at the dealership at low speed but it was enough to damage the tire and rim and they covered it with no drama. Ive found the wheels and tires hold up better than I expected but you still better watch it. Btw- Gustav, great improvements to the site.
