The 6 GC is a fantastic looking car and I totally agree BMW executed the 4 door coupe very well. I think the biggest question is comparing it to M5. I have been in both M6 GC & M5 (both with competition pkg) and I feel the M6 is sportier.

Another great video. Thanks.

First of all, thank you. However, while comparing the M5 and M6 GC is interesting, I think it would be not the most interesting video. I think both cars are very similar in performance and comfort. I am pretty sure the M5 would win every category by just a bit, except for design maybe (which is subjective). But the M5 is definitely better in everything, but it comes down to the personal preference of the buyer, which one he will chose.

I respect your opinion. However, I do not understand how can you say that M5 is better than M6 GC in every category?

Before getting my M6 GC I have tested M5 for a few days. Yes... M5 has more luggage space and is better bang for buck. In every other way M6 GC is far superior as far as I'm concerned. From much more sophisticated interior, overall design... to performance. Imho

Sorry I think you misunderstood! Performance wise and on a sheet of paper with performance data, the M5 beats the M6 GC in every category.

Design wise.. I don't think we need to discuss that Best looking car ever!

Okay. I will do some research as soon as I got time

Trust me, I love the M6 GC (as I said in the video), it's the most beautiful and sexy car BMW built in recent history (since the Z8 imo), but since it's also a bit heavier it can't 100% keep up with the M5. But I doubt you would feel a very noticeable difference when driving them back to back.

But I think I didn't express myself correctly too. I don't think the M5 beats it in every single category. But it at least ties the M6 GC and overall wins every comparison in terms of performance, lap times etc. But then again, who cares.
