Even though I already posted this in the M5 section, I would also like to post it here to see what the general public think!

I would assume people who are in the market for a M5 also have the cash for a M6. $16,000 shouldn't be that big of a difference for a $100k car. So why are there many more M5 than M6? And the number of peolpe viewing the M5 section is always at least 2x more than the M6 section. Why?

I also considered the M6 before placing my order for the M5. The main reason why I picked the M5 over the M6 is because girlfriend and family (not kids) like the space of the M5 more, and a bit because of the price. Another note; when I sat in the M6 driver's seat it felt squished and uncomfortable. I was a bit surprised that the bigger M6 felt smaller compared to the M3, and I don't even need to talk about the backseat.

So why are there many more M5 than M6? Is it because of the reasons I mentioned above or the look (even though the M6 is gorgeous in it's own ways, but more prefer the look of the M5)?

I replied to your post in the M5 section, but I'll reply here as well. One thing I forgot to mention was I believe that the M6 is still getting the old nav system until 03/13. Not sure if that may be playing a role in a lot of peoples decision.

I agree... I think people buy M5 for exactly the reasons you mentioned.
I like the every day functionality that comes with the M5.
M5 is a lot more practical car than the M6.
