but the 6-series isn't meant for "spirited driving". It's a pure 100% luxury car. I can understand the automatic. It's compariable in price to an m5. You want a hard driving car, get an smg or manual m5. You want luxury where anyone can drive in style, get a 645. Different classes of cars.
And on that note, moving to the 6-series forum. It's not off-topic from bmws.
