You're right. Imo that's best part of the old 6 series. Now it's gone

so the m8 will share the wheels, brakes, engine, exhaust, hp figure, (probably the interior), etc.. with the f90 m5 yet not be called the m6.....

cant wait for them to reveal that the m2 will be called the m4 and the m4 will be the m6.

The 6 series has been moved up to 8. The new 6 series is a 5 door GT.

Good question. Rumors have suggested that the 850i will finally usher in the new 4.0L V8, an engine which has been whispered about for years. Whether this will actually happen is unknown. But if it does, there is a chance that the M8 will use an M-ified version of that engine instead of the S63B44T4 in the F90 M5.

Hard top will weigh more. They need to lower center of gravity and minimize weight as much as possible.

Glad to see these land yachts get some nicer soft-tops without much ugly creases

Cant wait to see the production version. I also cannot wait to see the GC version of the 8 series. That will more than likely be the car I go after.
