    Ya man because we hear those horror stories about BMW's falling off of cliff's since the brakes are so bad. :rolleyes:

    I have only seen one 645 in person. It was on the highway, but the car didn't strike me as something that would make a person go "Wow, that car looks awesome, that's the next one I'll buy" or even strike me as interesting. I think BMW made a mistake with Bangle and it shows a lot more now than it did before. All the cars blend way too much. They all seem so alike. I wouldn't want to spend the $69k on a 645i just to have someone buy a 3 series coupe next year that looks somewhat the same.

    My guess is that it is only the engine and under pinnings being tested in that vehical.

    I would agree. Usually you see tons of diagnostic crap on the cars when they're in testing.

    They would test the car with its own parts. They are not going to put the 645ci body on an M6 drivetrain, just to fool people. That would kill the whole idea of better airflow/downforce of M cars

    Also, the US is one of, if not the largest market outside of Germany for BMW. So, there are typically a lot of test mules running around in the US before official release.

    Because the version they are testing is for the American market. It's not the one they are going to sell in Germany or other countries besides the US(minus countries that have the exact same cars as we do).

    ?

    what's the difference between an M& in germany and an M6 in the US? the one in the US might be governed at 155 mph but that's about it...

    or are there other differences :dunno:

    True. They were testing the 6-series in San Francisco last year for about 6 months. Very cool seeing all these different colored cars with black tape all over them.
