Five-Point Inspection: 2013 BMW M6

4. Helpful Head-Up Display

Surging to the speed limit is so much more fun when you know where you’re going and how fast the car is traveling.

It’s sort of a sick and twisted juggling act in some high-powered cars, but BMW doesn’t ask you to glance between the speedometer and street. Instead, the heads up display shows everything from speed to rpm and even the current speed limit.

Most remarkably, it updates within seconds of passing a new speed sign, which is helpful when you’re busy taking in the car’s sensory overload of luxury amenities.

    How can you hate the stop-start but then say you love the mpg right after. That’s like saying you want to eat french fries three meals a day but never gain any weight. Makes sense…

    Why can’t they build a smaller version of this car? It would be so cool if the M4 looked like a miniature version of this thing…

    I’m actually not a fan of how the BMWs look these days. If they would go back to the E36 days I’d be all about it (hipster comment, I know). But seriously, these bulbous hoochie mamma cars are too much.

    Bring me back to the days when cars were cars and people other than greased up investment bankers and dope pushers could afford the good stuff. I guess that’s why I’ll never buy new. Alas.
