My M6 and M5 dyno'd at EAS- Pics of the M6 and dyno charts inside!!!

Mods please leave this here if possible--- there is no traction on the M6 side and I think some or most of the members can appreciate this post- thanks.

Yes, I got an M6 too. Why? Maybe I was bored, maybe I enjoy the S63tu and its potential very much. I drove it at a local dealer a few weeks back off a whim and it was very impressive. I am keeping the f10 right now as they serve two purposes; a four door sedan than can haul 5 and a sleek sexy coupe that just looks really good.

In short I found it to handle differently than the M5. The chassis feel, response in short turns and high speed bends was awesome. In a straightline, handling was very similar as both suspensions share a similar set up. But the car just inspired more confidence at speed. Understeer is less prevalent in the M6- turn in feels easier as well. It in no ways is a gtr or even a porsche turbo handling wise but the car is great. Maybe it was the seats with the side bolsters that made it feel like it handles better than my M5 The car also sounds louder than my M5 did prior to my E-Race install. Im not sure why or was the active sound turned up Since I have the Eisenmann Race on the 5 Im gonna take a shot with Meisterschaft on this car. Install is slated for Friday and then another dyno to see if there are any real gains.

The interior is really great- the seats are amazing, carbon fiber all over the place, and the 3 spoke steering wheel is a nice change from the M5. I think its just a more luxurious feel overall and it should be given its price tag. I got a smoking deal so I pulled the trigger.

The car did feel slightly faster via the butt dyno vs my M5 but I wanted to make sure so I went to go see Tom and Steve and the guys at EAS- my local So Cal BMW shop to dyno it and make some comparos. Thanks again to all the EAS peeps including Anthony who always takes great phots without any planning. I have attached pics of the car and the dyno sheets of the M5 (done last December). I know they were done in different conditions but the temps were relatively close and so are the numbers. The slightly lower weight and chassis set up gives the M6 the advantage IMHO handlingwise and in speed. Whats ironic is I found this Car and Driver comparo after I got the 6:



Im in no way saying that the 6 is better than the 5- hell I have both and if I could only have one Id have the 5. They serve two different purposes and while they have the same engine, there are differences outside of that. Maybe not enough for most but enough for me. I like to waste money and switch cars alot so this was a necessary taste test YMMV.

Some minor cosmetics done on the M6:

Wrapped front grill- the slats are black just the rims needed wrapping
Wrapped rear trunk spoiler
Wrapped side grills
Painted side and rear reflectors
Full coded with turn signals in the HUD, TPMS, DVD, Cameras in Motion, amber lights turned off, warnings removed, etc

Wheels are ordered (HRE's), black badges are here, and Im waiting on springs- no one has them yet for the M6
















Love the LED's on the M6--- coding removed the ambers too:



Here is the M6 dyno uncorrected with all the runs:



M5 dyno that was done in December... this is the uncorrected sheet.

Please note I do not and did not have a center pipe:

You sir are living the dream. Now, just for the heck of it, go buy an E92 M3 to complete the collection.

You lucky guy! Looks great in white. You're the perfect test case for a premise I posed in an earlier thread, concerning the video you've attached I think. Even though it was stated that the M6 would be the faster car on track, I felt that the improvement over the M5 would only be realized by a very competent driver. I feel that the average driver's limitations will hold both cars to very similar times for a lap, not the capability of the car. Said another way, the driver will reach his limits with each car at very much the same point with cornering, braking, and acceleration, the end results being very close for a lap. I think that the supposed added comfort from the better handling of the M6 won't enable the average driver to turn a faster lap.

Now, I have no idea of your skills as a driver and you may be far better than an average driver, but I'd still be very interested in the results if you ever take both cars to Willow Springs or some other road race type track. Please let us know if you do. Enjoy them both and I envy you the opportunity!

White is my fave and I have still not found a way to drive more than one of my cars at the same time LOL.

I have the Black Series and its a pita to keep clean and detail. The dealer really gave me a good deal on the white and red with the carbon fiber.

White really sets off the lines of the car. Love the way the spoiler accents the rear and the CF roof just sets the whole car off. Very nice. :-)

Came very close to owning the M6 with the M5 as well. Same reasons. Sportier vs. practical. Hockey gear didn't fit well in the M6. Waiting on the M6 GC and who knows....the wife may get the F10.

Very nice car and congrats. Question. Could you find out what code your guy or you did as far as the blinkers in the head up display. My guy didn't have that one or couldn't get it to work. Thanks.

Thanks guys for all the comps... EAS didnt really elaborate on the tq spike on the last run... must be a one off push I guess.

As for the turn signals in the HUD it only works on the M6 as far as I know and not our M5's. Further, they are not available in M mode which was what I wanted. So while I have them coded on the f12 I do not use them as I need M mode on the HUD.

Nope indicators for the HUD do work on the M5 as well , as you mentioned they won't work in "M" mode if you have the tach displayed as it takes up too much real estate .

Wow very cool--- I wonder why my guy didnt know about this... He was very thorough and knowledgeable. Oh since, as you and I both mentioned, it wont work in M mode I find it not necessary. I just cant drive this car without the HUD in M mode.

Car looks fantastic Vic. AW looks great on both the M cars!! Love the interior carbon btw; may need to get some for my M5 at some time. Dynos on both your cars are very impressive; especially since its on 91 octane. Thanks for the insight re: handling differences.
