The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.6
8.6

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2008 BMW 6-Series is overwrought and overstocked with technology that distracts even from the M6’s heroic performance. The 2008 Cadillac XLR-V marries a folding convertible top with Corvette-style performance--what’s not to love?
