I praised the new M5 previously but the point in the post is another. Yes (AWD on an M car) is a nice feature for those who can afford the M5...
Plenty of people still love their M cars "spinning" (including the M6 of course) exactly because they spin, because they are fun to drive without AWD and that is how M GmbH cars always were, and still are (M5 being the only exception thus far).

As for performance a slightly tuned M5 competition (and non-comp) already breaks it big time. Curious as well to see how far the M8 will bring it.
Time will tell if all future M cars will have AWD. Chances are that they will. I am not sure whether this is something the majority of the (M) community would welcome but it will be interesting to live if it happens.

Don't give up - if the interior color/type was the only reason wife didn't agree then it's a matter of time until you find one that she also likes.

The awd is something I think about often. As much as I love my m6gc the wheel spin makes the car so useless.

Good luck in your purchase!

I have had 7 M5s. I recently sold my M6GC and picked up a 18 M5. To date the new M5 may be my all around favorite. It reminds me of my previous e39s, the cabin seems smaller than my f10 and the handling is wonderful. It's an amazing platform. You will not regret this move.

She thought it was "too flashy"....

I can see her point, it's not my favourite either. But obviously very popular!

Yes... KW HAS system. It provides great handling and a nice stance.

I am very sad to see the M6 go so if anyone from this forum decides to buy it I will be more than happy to keep in touch!

https://www.autotrader.ca/a/bmw/m/wo...L0L1L0&sprx=50 - not sure who took those pictures but they are awful in my opinion

I babied this car from the beginning and did the break in procedure exactly according to the manual. The 2000km service was done exactly at 2000km. It burns 0 oil and runs like a dream. Also did the full ceramic coating and partial xpel front end wrap. Let me know if you have any questions!
Is yours one of the ones currently for sale by dealers?
