UK M6 owners

I'm saying hello 6 months into M6 ownership after a decade of 3 series. (62 plate coupe) How many UK owners do we have on this forum?

For those in the UK who remap, I've had DMS and Evolve maps. Evolve have proven to be far far better both in power and smoothness. I'm not bias just pure experience guys. Also the DMS dyno over reads compared to evolves and also Surrey Rolling Road which allot of people use as a benchmark.

I have been using Evolve for the last 9 years and nothing but good has come of their products/maps.

mits : I have the data for all the RHD M6 GC cars built up to Nov 9th 2016, on that date they changed the VIN block that's in use and I don't know the last 7 digits of the new block. Would you mind sending me a PM with the first 5 of the last 7 digits of your VIN so I can keep my data up to date? I think the GC looks stunning in Sakhir Orange, but there are not many in the UK, just 20 plus yours and any others made since 9th Nov.

OP - pjs? Think I remember you from the E90 post days?

Can't believe I've had my M6GC a year already....

DMS stage II map (725bhp) Catless DPs in the shed waiting to go on.... if I ever get time...

191.6mph at Vmax last May (damp) which beat Evolve's white M5 on the day. I was quickest 4 door and quickest BMW!!

Can you send me the data? or if not then how many San Marino Blue with Aragon Brown leather are there in the UK?
