Doug DeMuro made an M6 video

Nice 6MT car, shame it isn't a comp though or have full leather but ohh well - this might raise some interest in our cars.

I'm in San Diego and was going to offer up my 2014 M6 GC, comp package, for review, lol. Looks like someone beat me to it.

Ah I see thanks.

Not that it matters too much, but I think the M6 GC would've had the highest DougScore against those cars he compared in the list, with a couple extra points for styling and practicality.

I dont know, I think the Coupe looks sexy. The wheels though, I didn't even know M6's came with 19" wheels.

Doug has commented in several of his videos that he prefers the look of the GC over the Coupe so I imagine it would score higher in the styling section of the DougScore.

Those wheels make babies cry. This video showcases how a proper set of wheels can greatly help the aesthetics of a car.

To my eyes the GC is far better looking than the coupe, hence why I bought the GC. The addition of the 2 doors compliments the low, wide shape.

Agreed. It's actually too bad Doug picked this relatively plain looking example to review for his channel. Aside from those unattractive wheels, but my eyes were instantly drawn to the totally faded logo on the brake calipers. With all due respect, there are some stunning examples on this forum of folks in the SOCAL area, which would've been far more worthy to represent the M6 on Doug's channel IMHO.

I found it interesting that Doug didn’t understand why the center console has a lock but the glove box does not.

I guess he didn’t see the valet switch that locks out the trunk when he looked inside the center console.

Ha, I found it by accident one day.

One thing I'm curious about, for the pre-LCI owners out there, that Doug mentions in this review. Is M2 not configurable? I can configure M1 and M2 in my car and assumed that has always been the case, but Doug here said M1 is configurable and M2 is Sport Plus for all settings. Is that indeed the case?

The blinker signal is not an issue -- sad that he couldn't figure out to disengage the blinker all you had to do is tap in either same/different direction, as opposed to doing a full send in either direction. Plus it blinks three times with a soft touch, which is way more of a convenience than a "quirk". Sometimes I just feel he's looking for things that are semi-normal and adding emphasis, through his narrative, as if it were something absurd.

M1 & M2 are both configurable. Dougie probably missed this for any number of reasons (similar to missing the reason why the glove box and center arm rest lockable feature)...but the original owner of the car may have had M2 already programmed...thus Doug wouldn’t want to play around with it and change it.

For example, here’s a video of a 2013 M5 where instructions for programming for the M1 & M2 button is demonstrated:

You know, I've seen other reviewers have a problem with this as well. It's never bothered me and is rather simple to figure out, and I agree with you about Doug taking wholly mundane things and treating them as though they are life altering.

Appreciate the reply. I assumed they were both configurable, but wanted to confirm, having never been in a Pre-LCI car. Seems Doug could've figured that out without much extra work, but I guess it makes for a more compelling segment putting so much emphasis on M2 being the "balls out" mode.

Think he should of chosen a convertible to me the vert just has that extra edge especially since there’s not much that compares looks wise. They seem to be more desirable as time goes on too especially when looking at prices of the previous generation m6.

What's your deal? You're in this thread crapping all over it. This is my car. He chose it because it's a stick and we live close to each other, so I am not sure what you're on about...There's 68 of them and he chose what he was offered. Sorry you don't like my stock wheels on my car that I paid for with my money.

No need to get all butthurt that I pointed out a few things on the car I don't like. I don't need to sugar coat my opinions. Sorry, not sorry? It is what it is.

But honestly, congrats that Doug selected your car to review, that's pretty damn awesome regardless of all those cosmetic flaws at the end of the day.

You've tossed your opinion into the hat 3 or 4 times along with your passive aggressive jab at the end of this reply. We get it . You don't like it.

3-4? I literally made 2 posts in this thread directed at the looks of the car in the review.
Passive aggressive? Dude, yea I don't like the wheels and the faded logos on the brake calipers. I don't need to beat around the bush about it.
It's not the end of the world, not sure why you're behaving like a sensitive teenager about it. No car's perfect and has some flaws, mine included. Move on.

All 4 brake calipers were replaced under warranty a year ago, so I guess they're faded from the factory

I too commented on the wheels, but please don't take it to heart. You know the old opinions line..."opinions are like assholes...". We all can't like the same things. I'm sure there are some mods on my car others don't like. Some colors I picked that others don't like. I personally don't mind the wider perspective of other's opinions and it has caused some friendly banter as a result, but I do understand that some may not want to hear or read it. As you said, we buy what we like with our money, and ultimately, that's all that matters.
