m3 size vs m6 size

Does anyone have exact dimensions of the two cars? I keep finding different dimensions.

You should find all the specs you need at bmwusa.com. Even the manuals should be available online for real details. That M6 is bigger, but the rear seat room is MUCH smaller than an M3 coupe. The car is a lot less versatile.

......I got out of a 650i into the ///M3. The 6 series is smaller than it looks on the inside. From the outside it is definitely longer than the ///M3. From the driving position the front end appears to never end............Phil

I'm not a fan of the 650 either, its way too long. I hope these cars don't keep getting bigger going forward.
Are we still talking about cars?

Some people don't like M6's cabin, because you seat downer in M6 and also the visibility is less than M3.

Guys this is a M3 forum, right but does it give us the right to cover the facts and tell us what we want? No !
Someone is asking a question about both car, he didn't ask our OPINION about both cars, those two questions are different.

Sorena
So if that's the case, why didn't you answer the OP's question instead of giving your opinion ...............Phil

M6 looked great but probably wouldn't own one. More of a GT to me than the M3.

But I'm excited what they will do to the m6 this time around.

If I never tracked it and only opened her up on the highways (like most do), I would opt for an M6. You simply cannot beat the S85's top end and soundtrack.

Here's some data:

Click the "+" button for full details.

This is for the new 6 though, but the old 6 and M6 should be similar.
