Actually, I am not planning on any mods with this car at the moment. This car just exceeds all my expectations. Suspension is perfect. Sporty and classy front end. More power than I can probably handle. And engine sound was great as well..... Didn't regret getting the 650i GC instead of the M5

I put the Morr MS8 on the side to see if it looked better than stock. In fact, the 20" seems a bit too large on this car So I think I am sticking with the stock 19" Dunlops for a while........

Saw you yesterday down garden road.

Couldn't catch you at queen's way, my son was seating in front and ask when I will change to that sports car. Hehe I told him I can't afford it.

I think I'm the first member here to see your ride.

I had some thoughts of the F06 for the past couple of days from an ex-F10 owner perspective. But I posted over at the 6 forum here so as not to clutter up the F10 forum.

Welcome to read my less than 2cents if you are bored

Great run at stubbs road.....

Took the F06 out for some food and took the long way home Up Tai Hang Road->Jardine's Lookout->Stubbs Road ->Garden Road. at the Tai Hang Road - Stubbs Road round about, a new CLS started to tailgate me. I can definitely see the kid behind the wheel. I wasn't driving particular aggressively as I still have the Dunlop run flats on and not even 400km on the car.

But he just keeps on pushing me real close, so I muttered to myself, what the heck! Switched the car into sport mode and floored it, starting from Adventist hospital. I can tell the dude tried to keep up in the back, driving fairly aggressively. The F06 didn't fail me at any turn and I didn't even slow down at the turns. Pretty soon, the headlights from the CLS were at quite a distance.

And then, there was a taxi in front of me, that I had to slow down CLS kid caught up and pushed me again. So well... Dangerous manuever but I have confidence in my F06 I passed the taxi in front at a very short broken white line section (I think right after white jade) right before a right turn which followed by an immediate left bend. CLS tried to follow but I guess he finally chickened out. The CLS can't handle like the F06. I know because I test drove it.

And by the time I got to good old Police Museum Junction, the I can't see the lights from the CLS anymore

And during all these, on Dunlop SportMax DSST, DSC light has not come on once That's handling of the Gran Coupe

^ it's nice to hear you have out-gunned the CLS but please drive safely on local roads. Not worth it if anyone got into an accident or somebody got hurt. It only takes one split second for bad things to happen.

A Audi TT (rs or tts) came from behind, I could tell he wanted to overtake me on a brief allowable stretch, he was coming from a distance, but I could already feel him waiting for his turbos to engage, so i jammed the pedal in normal mode, car barely warmed up, got up to 5.5k rpm in no time, just enough to head him off to prevent him cutting in my lane, but ofcourse no where near enough power to keep up with him,and bendy flyover, i don't want to fly off -the car has NO handling .. but at least i managed to play to the car's strengths.

I hear you. But still once in a long while. And I waited until I have clear line of sight on the length I needed to pass

But I hear you
