Ok guys I recently traded in my 2006 M5 for a 2008 M6. Not exactly sure if I made the right choice but needed a slight change in scenery and love bmw. I didn't really need the 2 extra doors and wanted a more sporty car. I loved my M5 and I am hopeful the m6 will be a similiar experience. I ordered the car with
soft close
ipod
enhanced audio
hd audio
satellite
carbon fiber trim
comfort access
full merino leather
I didn't get hud because I hate the huge whole it puts in the dash. Not to mention the fact that the tach is pretty useless.
Tracking says it gets here on 2/14.....so when will I have it in hand? I am nyc??

What colors? My M6 is my first BMW after a bunch of Porsches etc., and it is great. Similar options as yours, but mine has HUD, and I don't find it very useful. Matter of taste.

Black on black. I am getting concerned though. When i track my order online it does not refer to full merino leather. It just says merino leather. BIG difference in my opinion.

Ask the dealer for confirmation order before it goes any further. He should have that easily at hand.

Follow up on this ASAP. I love my stitched dash and it's funny how many passengers runs their hands along it.

As for the HUD, I actually really like it, especially when testing out certain electronic "aids" BMW, Merc and Audi are hamstrung by:thumbsup:

HUD sucks and I would not get it again. I get a glare off the HUD, not the mirror portion, but the leather surround frame of the HUD.
Reflects in my windsheild right in my line of sight.

I took a poll and against my better judgement ordered the car with it. Mistake for me.

Forgot to say Congrats!

If you've had the HUD, used it and became comfortable with it perhaps you would miss it. It's a personal thing. I really thought originally it was a bit gimicky. I have grown to like it and find I miss it in other cars as well as the paddle shifters. I suppose that's why Baskin & Robbins has all those flavors? :dunno:

Ok I am a little freaked out that the order tracking does not say full leather. Can someone with full leather confirm that the owners circle order tracking does not refer to full or not full leather? My salesperson is on vacation until monday......i am dying.....

I can feel your pain. Call the dealership (or go down there) and have the sales manager help. Just because the Salesperson is enjoying their vacation, doesn't mean you have to suffer after plunking down 90+K. Good luck, and I had the HUD on my 550 (not by choice), and I actually liked it for the navigation function. Anyway, great car, and great color combo.

I love the HUD, but the hole in the dash is an eyesore ouich
The ridge in the dash, just below the windshield, forms a smooth arc starting on the doors. A beautiful design element, interrupted by the HUD :nono:

My order says "X3A8 sepang merino leather", and I have Full Leather. I remember questioning this myself. The standard would say "Sepang extended leather" You're fine.
