These M6 GCLCI competition LCI are rare in the UK and are quickly snapped up.

It would only be used as a weekend car. I have two dailies already. So mileage likely to be less than 5000 miles/year. Has BMW individual frozen black exterior and interior (Colour SONDERLACKIERUNG (490) Upholstery
IND.VOLLLEDERAUSST./PLATIN/SCHWARZ) with bang and olufsen audio. I am so chuffed. Almost all options but surprisingly no power boot opening and no driving assistant and four zone climate controls

Drove the car almost 300 miles today from the dealer. So many admirers today of the car. Hopefully would keep this one for a long time. Needs to start saving for retirement.

Th car drove so well and I set the M2 button to sportiest everything including MDM mode and the damper did not seem stiff at all (I know it is adaptive). Did not feel stiffer than my previous G30 520D. The multifunction seat was heavenly. I back now without feeling any discomfort having driven for almost 5 hours

The car drove like dream, driving in manual and setting the RPM above 4000 miles gives exhilarating acceleration with beautiful tonal sound. The car moved sideways a bit if accelerator pedal is just mashed, it need to be feathered.

Hopefully I would be changing its engine oil at every 5 k miles, avoid high RPM when engine is cold. The car feels solidly built made like any BMW and feels bullet proof. i hope so.

It is the best car I have owned to date

Many thanks for all the forum members that steered me away from those two I was interested in

I would probably change the grille to a black performance one.

Would be okay to stick a carbon spoiler onto the frozen black paint?

Few pictures attached. The back of the car has become dirty so the photo would be added later
Gorgeous car, same age as my SMB, pleased to see they will "age" so well (mine only has 16k km/10k mls). Love the colour combo, but I didn't know they made these without the rear climate control options... Well, I guess Aussie cars come with most options as standard, then again nobody really sits on the rear seat in my car anyway.

Can't see from the pictures, but if yours doesn't have Michelin PS4S, that would be the best way of spending some money on it - changing from the OEM P-Zeros transformed the car. Also, get the alignment sorted - not at BMW, but find someone who knows what they do. Remember, the rear axle has adjustment in our cars, but appears it's pain in the butt to do, but so worth it.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about the spoiler, these cars look so classy that it will just make it look strange - looks good on F13, though.

The other "mod" I would suggest is a proper after market sound system upgrade, but as yours has B&O its so much trickier, so probably don't worry about it. But our cars are pretty damn good acoustically, so you could get amazing sound. This would also delete the synthetic sound piping through speakers - but you can delete that separately...

Enjoy, and let us know how you get on with it!
