I was making my visit to the BMW M GmbH in Garching today. It was very disappointing. I only saw two M6s in Silverstone II and Sepang Bronze covered under snow and ice with still camouflaged front and rear bumpers. I tried to brush the snow off the carbon fibre roof, but the only thing I revealed was a thick layer of ice. The main reason for my visit was to have a closer look at the colours offered for the M6, especially Interlagos blue. Interlagos blue looks terrible under wintery daylight conditions; an ugly striking dark blue with a tinge of purple. I couldn't believe my eyes; it has nothing in common with the stunning pictures posted in the M5 thread "Interlagos blue – how sweet it is". Artificial light seems to change the colour completely. The standard M6 colour I like best definitely is Silverstone II. It's a sporty colour that you don't see on other cars – it's exclusive to M5/M6 for the duration of at least two years; it's a light silver that on the one hand stands out but on the other hand isn't flashy/bright at all. Unfortunately, they could not show me Indianapolis red on a car, but they were crazy about that colour. Apparently 85% of all customers in Germany have ordered the M6 in Indianapolis red! I can't believe it though. Next week they get in a M6 in Indianapolis red for their presentation room. That is a good reason to visit them again. Sorry, I was not allowed to take pictures.
