I would like to see a black finish, should look good as I find the current wood finishes not sporty enough for the 6 series especially the m6
However the pricetag is very high

I don't care for that look, carbon needs to be black to suit the M6's character.

Call me weird, but for me the whole naked carbon fiber look is over. Too many ricers dressing up their cars with CF trim, hoods, scoops, vents, buttons, shifters, wings, air dams, etc.

Call me weird too.

Well this orange carbon as actually been taken to extremes, hurt the eyes, but I saw dark blue carbon that was very nice before, maybe I have a picture somewhere, I'll check

I often wonder what the people at Hamaan are thinking.

How they come up with their designs is beyond me...they are so painfully displeasing to the eye!

The only cars I think they "got right" were the Ferrari 360 modena, and the Lamborghini Gallardo.

Alfred's right - that is ugly (and the exterior's even worse).

This is actually a pretty easy question, at least in terms of the CF. Many people think it makes their car look better, look faster, etc. Somehow, their car is faster, badder, more kickass because they have it. Look at any stock engined ricer with a fart pipe, 2 foot tall wing, and a CF hood. Add in that several of the hotter, higher end cars come with CF trim, or even panels and the majority of the car, and this adds to the impression that it must be better. So, to show how much better the car is, show the CF. "See, I have a CF hood, just like the McLaren! And check out my CF trimpanels inside! Isn't my car kewl?!"

So, Hamaan is just answering the call of their customers, or potential customers.

If I were to get a M6.. the first thing I would do is take it and get the roof painted to match the rest of the exterior. Hopefully BMW will give owners this very option.

Not my taste, but CF if applied judiciously, does look quite nice. IMO, It is for trim, not a whole panel.

The car in Geneva is equipped with a CF-trim. It looks very cool !
Prices are unknown so far but they will offer starting this summer ! Pictures to follow asap.

IMO it looks far better than the wood or the piano finish.

but that's a matter of taste...
Maybe it's just the flashlight of the camera, which gives the carbon that ugly silver sparkling look. I actually like carbon!
