Got my 650i Convertible yesterday!
I have only put 75 miles on my 650 since yesterday evening when I took delivery of my Stratus Grey, Chateau Red, Head Up Display (an astonishing invention for drivers), Active Steering, Sport, Logic 7 sound system, PDC, Sirius (not too sure that this is what I want long haul, especially since the iPod connection will be available shortly)and comfort access (wonderful feature).
The balance and torque of this car are exceptionally satisfying. No, not the fastest car on the road, but one that inspires confidence almostg instantly, despite the not necessarily intuitive i-Drive system, but one that is nevertheless accomodating if one has a bit of paitence. The car corners like it is on preverbal rails. Visibility is quite good and torque is instant, unlike my 03 CL55, whose compressor did not enter the day without drama at 1750 rpm. The CL sadly did not have the optimal driving position for me (I am 6'), as one is forced to sit rather high in the car. Moreoverf, the seats in the 650 are exceptionally comfortable and supportive.
Coincidentally, my GF took delivery of her Carrera 4S yesterday. The difference between a sports car and a 4300 lb. luxury convertible is unsurprisingly vast. I could drive either one all day long, most of the time with a smile on my face.
All in, the 650 is a fablous car.

The Carrera 4S is a fantastic car too, although...
... I don't know if I'd want to drive it as my daily driver. For me, the 650i is the perfect balance between a car like the 911 and a sedan like my 745.
Congrats on your new ride(s)!
