I'll keep the M3. Maybe supercharging it with stage 1; it's plentiful of power.

Well played sir...

Somehow these white/platinum interiors just spruce up the place like nothing else

I don't believe you're correct M6 coupe vs. M3 coupe. Head room is slightly better in the M3 (an inch), but width and trunk space for family needs is bigger in the M6. Also you can rake the front seat forward to create more space for occupants in the M6. I never said it was a "family" car anyway. What I pointed out was GT vs GT car, one would be more convenient to have.
Trust me brother, the M3 is roomier than the M6.
I sat it in and felt the difference on my own before I picked up a 3 series over a 6 series. I needed the back space in a coupe and it was pretty much non existent in the convertible 6 series for an adult to fit.... I thought the 3 series convertible was already too small for leg room, never mind the 6.

Look at the chart above that was posted also which shows the M3 has more leg room and head room.

Anyway, I'd still go for the new M6 over a supercharged M3. (just to keep things on the right path) lol

I guess I didn't feel the same way when I sat in one, but dimensions don't lie.

The good news... I bought it in Harlem and sold it on the Upper West Side 3 years later.

lmao!

Ahhhh lol I misinterpreted the statement. Lucky you though! Harlem has changed a whole lot in the last decade!
