I also considered the M6 before placing my order for the M5. The main reason why I picked the M5 over the M6 is because girlfriend and family (not kids) like the space of the M5 more, and a bit because of the price. Another note; when I sat in the M6 driver's seat it felt squished and uncomfortable. I was a bit surprised that the bigger M6 felt smaller compared to the M3, and I don't even need to talk about the backseat.

So why are there many more M5 than M6? Is it because of the reasons I mentioned above or the look (even though the M6 is gorgeous in it's own ways, but more prefer the look of the M5)?
I went for the M5 simply because I like having more room for my passengers. I had an E92 M3 coupe prior to this and there was simply no way an adult could fit comfortably in the back. However, I also feel as though the M6 offers no significant improvements to the M5 so that price difference to me isn't truly justified...
