im a turncoat ;)

I miss the S65 M3, I admit it. I thought the little Z4m would do it but the straight 6 isn't a V8. On a goof I called the dealer about the M4 and offhandedly said I'd a take an M6 if you had one with a manual tranny. He laughed and said they don't ever even see one. But he looked and their was 1 in the whole country! And just the combo I would want. Singapore grey with sakir interior. 3 days later its here! It's raining so no review yet but here are some pics. Doesn't drive as heavy as it is. Interior IMHO is the best BMW has. I will say this thought the shifter is more smooth than the M3, not nearly as notchy for some reason.

Honestly one of my favorite M6's out there, it's perfect. Perfect combo and correct transmission choice (for me) too.

Any plans to mod it?

I would think someone on the BMW forums could easily infer that OP meant the "only manual transmission M6 currently sitting in dealer new inventory in the country at that point in time"

Congratulations. Great color combo. 6MT FTW! I really like how these cars look. But when testing, i couldn't help but notice how disconnected it was compared to my E63 M6. To be fair though, it's now more upscale and more GT than it was before.

Congratulations! Great choice on the color combo, and the 6 speed. I will never give up my manual trans!

The F13 M6 interior is as you said, the best currently available in a BMW. Enjoy the car in excellent health.
