The wing mirrors suggest it's not an M5. Appears to be a 530i with 17-18" wheels.

I'm with you on this one. I've seen the silver one too and with it's black roof up, it's outright ugly!
I like the coupe though.

M6 IMHO is not a very viable option. I agree that I may be biased because I don't like its looks, but look at it this way, apart from it being a Coupe and a very slightly faster car than the M5, the basics which make it a great car is THE ABSOLUTE SAME as the 'regular downmarket' M5.

The only reason IMO someone would go for the M6 would be the 'cool' factor, but hey, you can get a regular 6 series for half as much and 99.99% of the population would be unaware of the difference.

Nope, the M6 convertible is a soft-top as making it a hard-top would be completely against BMW-M's philosophy. The M6 coupe has a carbon-fibre roof though.

Via other routes? I am sure Navnit Motors would import one if ordered by a customer.
