Yea.
M6 has better dynamics than the M5 due to the shape et all.

I saw 2 6 series yesterday.
One M and another 650/645 near apollo.

Sorry couldn't take a pic.

No, IIRC popular opinion points towards the M6 being some what a disappointment to drive especially when compared to the M5.

But wouldn't the fact that the weight of the M6 is a almost 100kgs less than that of the m5 make the m6 a better drive.

Is it due to aerodynamics?

honestly when we are talking about 500+bhp cars i doubt 100 kgs would make a big difference.

Not much but ya 0.2 seconds or something is a difference which is enough for the cars.

Spotted this PB(Jalandhar) registered Hummer in Rajouri Garden, few days back.Driven by surd and followed by security car.
Looks huge and has great road presence.
Just compare it with the Endeavour in the second image.
Only thing i didn't like is color.

Disappointing in the sense ? handling , fun factor etc.

I believe she doesn't handle as well as the M5 & is regarded as second best by international mags. BUT, this is not my opinion, merely what I've been reading in shootouts done by those mags.

I haven't driven either
