Not many M owners move to 6-series?

I noticed that few E92 M owners move up, or express a desire to move to the F12/F13 ///M or 650i (which is most certainly fast). Just curious if it is considered too big, too "60-year-old-man" like, or what?

I have seen a few 650i convertibles around Dallas, and with the top down, they do seem rather long. Yesterday, I saw a 650i hardtop, with the 20" wheel package and LCD lights. The car looked very nice, very premium. I drove behind it for a while and noticed something odd. The cabin/greenhouse looked about the same size as my E92. But the body was obviously wider, but not in a good way. It just seemed like the cabin was too small for the width of the car, and the proportions were out of whack.

If anything, it made me realize that the E92 (even non-M) has good balance design.
