Re: System 6 helmet
Schuberth does indeed make BMW Helmets (and not just the S6, most of the previous models too). That being said, although the Schuberth C3 and the BMW S6 are very similar, they are not the same at all. The fit is completely different, so if a C3 fits you, the S6 might not and vice-versa.
Also, spare parts and accessories (screens, foam inserts, etc.) are different and not compatible. Same thing with the BMW Bluetooth kit for the S6: it doesn't work with the C3.
Both helmets fit me well and are pretty much identical in terms of usability, comfort, noise level and quality of manufacture (duh!). If you sweat a lot, though, beware: replacing the S6's inner foams costs about twice as much as those in the C3. Then again, pretty much everything with a BMW logo on it is more expensive that without it...
