I don't think we spent enough time driving "normally" to make a fair judgment. I thought the M6 was pretty civilized during the little bit of off-track driving. As far as I'm concerned, if you can swing the M6 financially and don't need xDrive, then I'd go for the M6.

I didn't leave the PC thinking, "the 650xi is crap compared to the M6," which I was concerned about. Both are amazing cars. The M6 is better. Is it worth the money? Yes - if you ever plan on taking it to the track. Yes - if you really want the M6 styling, badges, and insane 560 hp engine. No - if you're going to be driving solely on public roads and want the best value for money when it comes to the F12/13. I fall into the last camp since I was trying to be financially reasonable (for lack of a better term) and won't be going to the track.

The 650xi can be "lurchy" in traffic when in Sport mode - that's what Comfirt mode is for. If the M6 was worse, I didn't notice anything drastic.
