    2013 M6 & Road Course First Time Experience

    September 28th 2012 BMW Corp private event at the Palm Beach International Race Way
    Got a chance to drive the 2013 M6 on the road course. This was also my first time ever driving on a road course. Car was driven in manual mode the whole time.

    Was fun, handling on corners was amazing in this car. Couple of 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.

    Nice job posting the video and on your impressions. Sounds like you don't feel it responded and delivered power as an M car should.

    Coming off the dealer lot as is, definitely not. It would need some retuning to reconsider.

    Oh no, night and day difference. X6M power delivery keeps you burried in the seat in just stock form. They are nothing alike. M6 took too long to get to 110 MPH compared to what I am accustomed to.

    I just think a good tune for this car will bring out it's true colors.
