I would say M5.

There are a ton of fast coupes; not to say the M6 is bad in any way. But you're in Porsche territory there (100k+).
But...
The M5 really has no equal in its class. No other sedan in that size comes close to it's performance equal.

both are awesome cars, just depends on what you need in the car to determine which one is better suited for you.

If speed is your thing, get a Porsche, an M5 is a sedan like nothing else. So I'll buy the M5 from the two; If I were to buy a 2 door, I'll buy a Porsche or Audi R8, M6 is overrated and to much $.

I'd go with the M6, although I do agree with DigitalJames....but I love the M6. If you do end up getting the M6, don't do something stupid and end up buying the convertible...stick with the coupe!

Im assuming you want a coupe if you like the shape of the M6. If so, go with the new M3.

False. M6 looks damn good.

OP: I'd get the M5. As said above, if you want a fast coupe in that price range there are plenty of other options whereas the M5 is unique. Big sedan that stays even with 997 Turbos and F430s with a few mods = win.

Lets say you buy a new m5 and it costs 90+ tax. The m6 would be around 100+ tax. If you are in the m5 range you could go for a 911s or 4s. GREAT CARS!! If you are in the m6 range I would look into a gt3. You can prob pick one up for around 120. Yes it is 20g more, but well worth it.
My friend just bought a 08 gt3rs for a grand over msrp. YES ONLY A GRAND!! You need to find dealierships in bumb fuc& states in the middle of no ware where they cant find a buyer. Do alot of research!! You can find some great deals on new cars. I remember my dad was looking at a c4s and found one new under msrp in kansas. He ended up buying a range rover, but will buy a turbo prob in a year or so.
But between the m5 and m6, I would vote for the m6. You want a fun car, and a m5 will feel more like a daily driver when you take it out on weekends.
If i was going to spend around 100g, I would buy a c2s.
Just my 2cts
