2011 Frankfurt: BMW 6 Series M Sport Debut

The 2012 BMW 6 series M Sport package has debuted at the Frankfurt IAA. The M Sport package adds some aggressiveness to the normally (perhaps overly, in our opinion) svelte 6 series with a much beefier front bumper with large air inlets and integrated splitters. The profile of the 6 series gets M sport sideskirts, which resemble the M3 sideskirts and gloss black trim. And the rear receives some aggressive treatment as well with the M sport bumper with contrasting colored diffuser.

To us, the centerpieces of the M sport equipped interior are the beautiful alcantara/leather sports seats - alcantara back and seat and leather headrest and side and leg bolsters, finished off with blue contrast stitching and a small M colored piping. Par for the course, the package also comes with an M Sport steering wheel.

Those of you who have followed our entire coverage (links below), may notice a particular color theme being developed by BMW - the color blue is becoming somewhat of an identifying color for M, M Sport, and M Performance products. The F10 M5 gets blue brakes standard, the F20 M Sport (link below) has blue contrast stitching and blue trim throughout its interior, the new X6 M Performance steering wheel gets a blue center marker, and this 6 series M sport has blue contrast stitching on its seats as well.

Thanks, Jason.

Interesting. Note the Shadowline trim on the Euro M package cars. That red is pretty and complements the M fascia, but I bet will bring law enforcement from the next county!

Does anyone know what color red this is? Is it the same red they used on the X6M showing off the performance parts?

I can't look at this car and honestly say it's good looking. The interior is nice, but I don't like the exterior styling at all. Just can't get into it.

Why are they adding these hideous LED strips in the front? First Audi, then MBZ now BMW! Since when does BMW copy such cheesy riced out additions?

The seats are great, the headrest no

BMW has done a far better styling job than any of the tuners.

When you guys change out your oil, do you just use an extractor and keep the oil filter (changing the oil filter at the 15k intervals)?

The front always looked good but the back was meh but the M-Sport kit makes it look a lot better. And why couldn't the M5 get wheels like this M-Sport 6er?

I like this. It's a man's car. Had an 07 m6 for two years and I miss that car sometimes. This is cool. The M will be insane. For a track weapon you go with m3.

Gorgeous looking car!

I love the M-Sport package on this, and the interior styling is lovely! Hope everyone remembers how to take care of Alcantara!!!
