Yes, the 645 is longer than the 545 by the same amount. It's because of the nose - just a styling thing.
Also according to the M5/M6 Brochure...

The M5 has a longer wheelbase, and wider front track, with a narrower rear one.

Front Track: M5 1580 / M6 1567
Rear Track: M5 1566 M6 1584
Wheel Base: M5 2889 / M6 2781

So even through the M6 is longer it actually has a shorter wheelbase, and obviously longer front and rear overhangs.

it depends on the weight of the overhauls and the overall wheelbase and the overall weight of the car and so on...
