Prevously I owned a 2009 M3. The new M6 convertible is light years ahead. Nothing on the market compares to the M6 for the cost of this vehicle. Comfort, styling, options and power, it has it all. This car will be hard to top in 7 years when it's re designed again, but I will be there to get it! If you can afford it BUY IT, if you can't afford it test drive it.
This is a great car I Baught mine new and unfortchently will lose a lot of money. What can I say I use it as a daily driver and I have 88,000 miles in three years and have had no issues with the car. Fuel economy isn't good but it is worth it when you can zoom up to over 100 in just a few seconds and for the size of the car it handles great in all the difference drive settings. My wife has M1 and I get M2 so there's a comfort and sport one. Best air conditioning is ever had and best ventilated seats in ever had. People think it might not hav Aton of space but with the back seats and the removable top we can go make a marketing trip or even buy something huge like a tv and just put the top down. The paint is beautiful I have black. Thanks for reading and I recommend this car completely

One of the more difficult-to-access launch control systems. Involves holding the console shift lever forward, setting the rpm and then pressing a couple buttons. Quickest time came with a 3,300-rpm launch and no wheelspin off the line. Shifts very quickly, but the engine sounds tinny -- not very mean or V8-like. Launch control is very rpm dependent, but it's easy to get too much wheelspin.
Moderately firm pedal with short travel. Very little nosedive. Car stayed completely straight and secure every time. First stop was longest at 112 feet. Fifth stop (out of 6) was the shortest at 108 feet. Almost zero noise from ABS system or tires.
Skid pad: Set steering to Sport Plus, suspension to Sport Plus. Car stays incredibly flat and there's plenty of grip, but you really have little idea what is going on with the front tires. ESC is not very intrusive and even erractic at times when it comes to intervening. Slalom: Fairly frustrating car here. Very big and wide, making it had to judge where the cones are. Car has some real ability, but because there's so little feel through the tires/steering wheel, it's hard to find its limits. Best time came with steering and suspension set to comfort, which makes it less frantic and easier to control on the edge.
