    My car

    I quit biking following a bike accident and I wanted to replace My R1 with something classy but a weapon when needed.I scoured the internet on every site imaginable for over a month.The 645 ci looked more unreliable or the 650i was more rare,it was a toss up between 645ci convertible or 650I coupe.My little boy's brain say's might is right, how could I not want a 4.8 v8 in my life. I found what I understand now to be the only manual for sale in over a month in the 650i (39 of which includes SMG) So I have exclusivity and to me a manual is what driving is all about,hanging out the gear ready to pile on the throttle mid corner.Many discussions over tiptronic,DSG & manual have always had me heated and firmly placed as a fan in manual camp. This thing purely monsters the miles in an effortless manner, if you don't concentrate you will notice triple digits creeping up and I'm from Superbike Territory.If you hit sport mode on manual the roll bars stiffen,your steering becomes more weighted and noise pedal halves it's distance to become full throttle.This took a bit of getting use to, my partner suffers bad back but you can't help hitting warp speed.Oh and that noise is an off beat sound (dirty v8 noise) similar to a more muted SLR or C63AMG (spitfire) Completely different to my mates E92 M3 V8.This is a Monster GT car and typical BMW options list,you do need the extras like panoramic roof and Logic7 Sound System.I-Drive is a doddle and another toy to play with when bored.Last big

    My car

    Had the 635D sport for a week now new from the dealer, was going for the 650i but there is no getting away from the best diesel engine ever made. With the new sport setting in manual mode the torque of the 35d comes into play leaving all but the M6 behind 40-80mph and M6 gets a run for its money. (the engine is the only diesel that even Clarkson likes)

    The new exhaust set up gives a definite bark when the throttle is worked hard and a noise to shame most petrol engines. Went for the full length glass sunroof kids are very appreciative as with all 2+2 the rear seats is a dreary place, the extra light makes a big difference.

    Running Costs, what running costs 40mpg combined (with a very light foot lol) 35 more likely and £170 a year tax

    As a final note I have had both the 997 carrera 2s great Car - keeps its money(yawn). Only so many funny hand signals even the thickest skinned of us can handle. Audi R8 great but a 2 seater so not comparable here (plus the new oil burner audi is better). But I guess most wouldn't take advice on a purchase of this size based upon the view of a guy call Maurice who's M8 has one (hope the XR3 is going well for you)lol

    Why would any sensible, sane person buy this car? My chum bought one and I advise all to buy a Porsche or Audi R8 or whatever rather than this

    My car

    I bought a second hand 55 Plate M6, after having an M3 I thought it would be similar, I was wrong this car is a supercar!

    Dont expect higher than 13 MPG as you will not drive it sensibly as the M button calls out to be pushed on every drive.

    I work within a mile of my home and some nights I take the long way home of almost 10 miles.

    If you want fun this is the car and as a second hand buy it makes sense, as I bought mine for 48K at just over a year old, put in persepective my vehicle has every option and was new 93K Glad I did not take the hit.

    Not as many options to tick as the M5 and not as practical even though a family of four could just get away with it as a second car as we do. But you will be noticed and you will be hard pressed to find anything on the road to keep up with you.

    Happy Motoring
