I must admit that I am quite taken by the images that those of you who have "taken delivery" of your European M6s have posted. Even those with limited photog availability have shown the car to be quite beautimous indeed!
Here in the USA, I am wondering if I would replace my M5 with the forthcoming M6? I guess I would only do so if it had a manual shifter. The paddle shifter is not something I would enjoy... altho many have stated otherwise. I would not buy it if it only had a SMG for the US version. I believe there has been some rumblings that the US version would have both the SMG and the 6 speed boxes. True?
If I cannot shift this beast for myself, I would not buy it.
The M6s that have been delivered are quite handsome IMO. I am surprised how Chris Bangle's cars have (sorta ....) grown on me.... I guess. Even the 7.
I wonder if the sound of the V10 is more than a Hoover sound? I love my 2003's M5 V8s Tubi drone.... and torque, of course. I wonder how the V10 will compare sound-wise with my car's wundermous rumbles? V10's, altho very powerful indeed, are not always the best sounding vehicles. Hoover-like comes to mind again. Altho, many have said that "Porsche-like" is a more appropriate an adjective.... but, what do I know? But, I have a 993 Pcar.
I still think the M6 is a possible "next car" for me... you folks that posted photogs of your new M6's, I thank you for my interest. But, man... a HUNDRED GRAND (USDs) is a crap load of buck$ for this car. And, it's not all thatmuch faster than my M5, eh. (sigh...)
