Man, loving proportions of the M6... Looks less like a long-nosed shark.

I think the M6 will look better in person. More modern, but still aggressive. Some of the lines on the E92 M3 are a bit too soft for my tastes.

That M6 looks like an M3 on the juice.

Just saw a 650 on the road this morning and it looks soooooooooooo much better in person, especially the rear half of the car and from behind. I think the M6 is going to look incredible. Not crazy about the front end (headlights are too large) but otherwise looks great.

I agree. Color aside, those dumbass reflectors kill the rear. Are those absolutely necessary? Ewwwww.

I think the E92/E90 M3 is almost perfect in its aesthetic design. What makes me appreciate it over the M6 is the powerdome (a nice touch) and the side mirrors along with the closer spaced quad exhausts.

the back end of the M6 definately looks weird, they are supposed to be 295 tyres at the rear so maybe just the photo is screwed up

Looks awesome!!

That rear shot of M6 looks ugh, but all the 6s I've seen in person look amazing. Have yet to see an M6 in-the-flesh.

The pictures don't do much, but the regular 6 series in person looks great.
