I thought you meant 0-200MPH in 14 seconds lol... I was like wow! But still, there's just something about this car and all the other new BMWs that makes it repulsive looking. Maybe it's the angry headlights/rounded grill combo.

I love the brand. And I love how they handle - nothing feels as good.
But the whole BMW lineup right now is a mess. Putting an "M" on a Bangle concept is not enough to make me like it. He has really damaged the whole character of BMW in general.
The M6 is no different, unfortunately. Not only is it ugly, it doesn't have the quality of past BMW's. If you actually get in one and drive around in it, you'll think you're riding in a GM or Chrysler product - which I don't mean as a compliment.

I test drove the new 5-series before I bought my 325i, I had no affection for the cheap materials used in the interior...They seemed to be sourced from the GM catalog - Malibu edition. BMW has got to get their sh@t together and quit the cost-cutting to produce profits that is cheapening their product. There comes a point when the consumer will just say 'no' to being overcharged for materials that are so pathetic.
On the looks of a Bangle-ized BMW, too much disharmony with all of the lines, curves, concave and convex areas, too much confusion for the eye..... I heard that the best way an automaker can make a dollar is to have good styling and charge for it, since it is hard to sell an ugly car....Go figure, it costs the same to produce an ugly or beautiful car....

To the two of you who differed with my opinion, I want to clarify something.
I am not saying that all new BMW's are lacking in quality. I was specifically referring to the 6 series. BMW itself acknowledges a larger number of plastic parts in this car than in any previous model. I am referring to dash and trim components not engine and drivetrain.
I know the car HANDLES well and offers a superb ride and performance. It just does not look and feel as upscale as the rest of their line - on the interior.

I almost always like BMWs designs. But this one is going 0-Ugly in less than a second. I'm not sure why designers forget to design the ass end of cars, but I see BMW is in the same boat as such company; the Chrysler Missfire.

I think it is gorgeous. One thing you have to keep in mind, BMWs (Esp Bangle's BMWs) look MUCH better in person than in photographs. I was not sure that I liked the 6 series, that is until I saw it in person. Absolutely a gorgeous design. It is so unique, nothing else is like it. I think BMW is brave, and showing it, by doing something radical in the styling department. It sets them away from the crowd, Mercedes on the other hand, likes to homogenize their cars, making them all look the same..... boring....wanted tooooo badly to be classy.... etc....
