Just picked up an BMW M6 Gran Coupe Frozen Black

Like the headlined said, I Just got the M6 Gran Coupe Frozen Black tonight. So far I love the car. Looks, and feels great. I am coming from a 2014 M5. I must say, I like this car a lot better so far, and I loved my M5. Here are a few pictures from my ownership now

Current mods:
-Just the black kidney grills the car came with
-Special IND gloss black M logo exhaust tips that I had from my M5

Future Mods:
-Full Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust
-Frozen Black front reflector
-BMW M performance Carbon Fiber Shifter knob
-Special gas pedals and put rest with M logos
-Tint windows
-BMW M performance carbon fiber diffuser

Did you get a good deal on it? Trust me- the 16s are frustrating the hell out of me. I'm just so stubborn on having a MT out in SoCal as well. (Otherwise I too would have pulled the trigger on a 15 by now for my home out here)

The definite packages I'm getting are executive- black 343m wheels, Ceramics, white opal leather and 6 spd mt.

I'm just torn between frozen black and frozen grey. My cars scheduled as of right now a week 18 (pushed two weeks again) but that's when it goes in for approval to BMW because it's an individual build. I have until then to keep being the fickle individual I am and jumping between the two.

Once it gets here- I'd love for us to meet up and get some shots of the cars together sometime. Push to get featured as a frozen m6 GC and coupe

I feel like I did man, 18k off sticker. I bet man, I couldn't do an MT out here in So cal the traffic will kill me haha. But I am sure yours is super nice and must be fun driving it without traffic on manual. I think the head lights are all that changed on the m6 2016 right? I saw the head lights on them they look cool but I didn't feel like it was major upgrade like the LCI version of M5 that was a huge upgrade on steering wheel and head lights and rear lights and I drive touch pad.

Oh nice man that white leather is going to look super sexy, I wish I had ceramic brakes bro. I think space grey frozen looks amazing, I seen it in person, theres post about it on the forum. But obviously I am bias on the Frozen black, but either choice man it will look like a beast.

Damn, man that waiting game is hard, I never done a special order.

That would be awesome man, since we are both in so cal. I am in San Diego but in north county so LBC is not to far from me. PM me your number. Thanks man

Awesome! I had a '13 M5 in Frozen Black... the M6GC in Frozen Black is just sinister.

Nice tint (doesnt need too dark since the inside looks black?), wrap the handles and get rid of those orange reflectors, done!

N.S.A, are both cars competition pack or not? I'm curious about if they are the same spec if you have noticed a difference in general handling and steering characteristics.

Thanks man! I am thinking a 20% or 35% tint all around, what would you suggest?
I'd go 20. I had a Jet Black/Black Interior 750 a couple of cars back, and went with 35. Never really felt like it looked right. Much happier with the 20% I did on most of my other cars. I just put them down whenever I'm passing any police and haven't had an issue.

20% all around, except front mirror, 35%. visibility is key when your pushing 270km/h

My M5 was not competition, and neither is the M6 gc I have. I test drove a CP M6 GC it was great drive but a little to stiff for me, this drives perfect.

I definitely agree, I have always gone 20% or darker on my cars. I had 15% all around on my m5, but the only reason I thought 35% because its mate black and its in little slant inside so it looks darker. But I agree man

Really tint the mirrors? I never thought about that, thought they come pre tinted for reflection. Great idea man thanks. haha I did my M5 15% all around

Man, lately the brakes have been dead quiet - even when I'm pulling onto the decline of my parking garage very slowly which usually lets out a terrible squeal. Wonder if it's been the warm weather that we just started experiencing?

Anyway, was thinking of getting some catless downpipes to introduce some extra noise to my arrivals but I instead decided upon this:

I love Frozen black - I've considered vinyl wrapping my Sahkir Orange F13 M6 in 3M's Satin Blacků but the SO is growing on me
