Pros This is an Autobahn Car., where you REALLY woud appreciate
Cons I can't find no Cons with this car..
Summary Your testing the car in SF traffic is ridiculous. Take it to Indy or Daytona and drive it where you'll get a deep appreciation of this master piece. You spent much too much time blabling about the navigation system. When you drive the M6 at
160 mph on the Autobahn you've got no time fiddling around with the nav sytem. I personally picked up my new 2007 M3 in Munich
last year and drove it up to Hamburg (500 miles)for shipment. The BMW guys told me not to drive faster than 90 mph. At that speed I never left the middle lane. BMW's are really only "driven in" after 40,000 miles.
Pros Great engine
Cons Ugly, heavy, ugly.
Summary The 6 series is considered a joke amongst most true auto enthusiasts. From the "Roseann Barr in a miniskirt" rear end, to the clumsy nose, the 6 is a styling disaster.
When it comes to sporty motoring, weight is the enemy. And the 6 and M6 are heavy, heavy, heavy. While the electronics successfully mask the porkiness for the majority of owners who will only drive the car to the country club, the gizmos can't hide the car's heft if driven in a manner truly befitting a sports car. And the brakes are miserable if one would be so foolish as to try to drive this lard ass on a race track. So failing as a sports car, the car is relegated to "sporty GT". Which would be OK, if that's what you want, if it wasn't such a visual monstrosity. The M5 offers equivalent performance, better utility, and is far cheaper. And the new M3, which I just put through the paces recently, is much more fun than either, at least with a 6 speed. If you do choose a BMW 6 series or a M6, whatever you do, PLEASE keep it under a car cover as much as possible! You owe it to humanity!
