Smile Finally got my Sakhir Orange M6 Coupe

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I used to own F01 BMW 750 with Dinan Stage 5, great car, but finally decided to go with something sportier.

A few days ago I picked up my brand new sakhir orange M6 coupe, so far I love it! Sounds amazing, drives the way I want it, technology is just phenomenal.

Booked an appointment for Wednesday for the following:
20% window tint, winter tires (sottoes), 3M protection.

Thinking about blacking out front grille and powder coating wheels in black.

Including my video review and a few shots below:

anyone else like to see contrast stitching in sakir for the black leather? While all sakir is too much for sakir/sikir a little contrast/color for the black interior would be nice BMW.

The coloured stitching is an Individual option. Most dealers in the states have no idea what you can do on the Individual program, pretty much you can do ANYTHING! Any colour leather for any part, different colours if you want, different colour stitching on any part, different colours if you want. Don't like the M embossed on the seat? You can have it removed, or embroidered on in M colours instead or any other logo embroidered on. You really can change the colour of almost anything, the paint can be more than one colour either just two tone or blended from one to another, you can have a leather or Alcantara trunk. The paint does not have to be a BMW colour, anything is possible - at a price and delay in manufacture!

Richard is in running in period though and I know that he is being good!!

My GC has just gone passed 3,500 miles and I now drive her harder than before and I am sitting at 17.6, but that is a lot of driving to London and back so not a great reference point and I've found out how to make her burble so that probably costs me each time :-)

The car is now scarily fast and the power will not stop coming irrespective of speed. Absolutely amazing.

Petrol wise it costs around 90 to fill up so just under $150 and I am getting between 260 and 310 miles to the tank.

As an aside I fly to Toronto on Monday for a Sales conference - I will look out for you!

I get 22-23L/100 km with my "fun" driving style, still playing with the car.

Just bought the carbon fiber shift knob here http://ind-distribution.com/ind/bran...dct-shift-knob
Great guys, replied withing 2 mins, the package should arrive on tuesday.

Thinking about ECU tuning my car http://ecutuninggroup.com/
Cost: $2500, they promise to bump my borses from 560 to 780 in 2hrs by installing their chip, dyno run included in the price.
