An easy decision, the M5 is the better car. It's more practical, it's prettier, it's 97% as fast in acceleration and around the same on the track but best of all it's an almighty £20K cheaper to start with and holds more of it's money when you come to selling it.

If you really wanted a coupe then you would be plain mad to got pass the M3 as it's a better car than the M6 hands down.

M5. The M6 may be a sporty coupe but it looks fat, bad face and bad bum.

This is highly incorrect.

The M6 looks like a bloated whale. The M5 is a better looking car that's more practical with the same performance for less money.

34% within a year is not great and something I wouldn't be willing to put up with, that is for sure though others clearly are. I would put this down to the press reviews that the M6 got at the start which basically couldn't see a way of justifying the increase in price over an M5, something I happen to agree with. This is not to say that the M6 is a bad car in any way only I reckon it's over priced for what you get.

And by the way that was the sticker price and not what the car may have sold for which could have been even less.

I drove both at the M performance driving school, and I was very very impressed with the M5 and not so much with the M6. Maybe it's because I had better expectations with the M6.
The M5 handeled just as well and the power of course was the same.
It's an awesome car!

My vote--M5 all the way!

If you're willing to spend that much just get a 911 GT2.

What's the point of an M6 when you could get an M3 for less?

Pros of M6 in comparison to M3:
-Badge
-(*)SMG if you're into that
-Spec sheet bragging rights

Pros of M3 in comparison to M6:
-Driving dynamics
-Faster
-Better looking (subjective matter)
-Will most likely have more community support
-Newer technology
-New M-Diff allows crazy drifting

Hmm...

True...

But a gt3 is close to the price of a m6..

I hope everyone on this forum would rather have a gt3 than a m6.

But +1 on the m3...

If i was stuck on a bmw, I would go for a m3..

GT3 FTW. My next car if anything would be a Porsche.
There are too many 335is out there.

I also agree with L~R~G nor cal, if I had to buy a bmw again, it would probably be a M3 convert.

I wouldn't have a GT3 as a DD. I'd take a Turbo for the extra $20k.

Personally, if I was in that price range, I'd be looking at an AMV8 or an Audi R8.

The M3 is not even close to being faster. What are you smoking? I'd also say imo the M6 looks better, much sleeker but at the same time more aggressive. What about the m-diff makes crazy drifting more viable than a standard LSD?

Cali sucks for car buying lol. There was an 07 M6 at the dealer by me about a month ago they were selling (starting, had a banner on it saying as much) at invoice.

why not include the r8? it among the same range as the m6 or a new m5 depending on what options you get.
