    Looking at the M6 setup, BMW has opted for a 2piece single piston caliper in the back, even if it looks bad, its more than enough.

    BMW's are nose heavy when braking hard.. probably 80%+ is done by the front wheels.

    Nope, McLaren had to replace some of the kits early on due to customer complaints of squeeky brakes and lack of feel.

    The lack of feel was not the brakes, it was the drive by wire braking system. I have driven the SLR and its a really bad system, but the brakes work very well on my car with the mechanical system. Btw, mine never squeeked Click here to enlarge

    Saw this new M6 at a dealer today and its quite a looker. I have no idea how the dealer had one in so soon but it looked fantastic. I did not like the odd steering wheel however or the M6 badging in the kidneys, it looked quite cheap.

    Drove the M6 vert last night at PBIR Road Course . Was fun, handling on corners was amazing. Two things I was disappointed in.


    • The DCT shifting was dull and not as sharp and cut slice as the M3/335iS DCT



    • Steering was too soft for an M car, the M3/335iS steering was much tighter and very easy to predict



    • was not impressed with the power delivery from a dig when compared to my 335iS


    Now what I was REALLY impressed with on the DCT, other than its handling, after coming to a complete stop, you can release the brake while the car is in drive (regardles of mode). The car does not move foward unless you press on the gas peddle. Wish I had this on my DCT.

    I got a GOPro vid driving and the handling will speak for itself as this was my first time ever being on a Road Course.

    I loved the road course expereince. I only stopped after I exahusted myself after 12 laps broken down in 3 sessions.

    Now as for my experience with the M6, I liked the handling but didnt like the power delivery which wasnt what I expected out of a M car

    This is a little different from what I would have expected, given that the new 6er weighs 2 tons. Certainly the engine won't be like a heritage M car due to the turbos, but I would have thought the handling would be the weakest link instead of the motor.
