Sold my M3... on to an M6

I picked up an 08 M3 sedan back in July 2008. Sold the car a few weeks ago. It was a great ownership experience. Cant believe 4 years went by so fast bought it for $59k new and sold it for $40k w/34k miles on it. $19k depreciation over 4 years - nice!! NO ISSUES with the car in 4 years other than a sunroof rattle here and there. Pretty amazing for an M car - my previous 2 M3's had a few issues. I had a manual, and was itching to move into another M3 DCT or an M5 DCT. I was looking for quite a while for the right car, then stumbled across an 08 M6 SMG w/ eisenmann race exhaust and 2 more years of CPO... I didnt think I was going to buy it, but it was LOCAL so figured what the heck I'll check it out. Started up the car and it was quite loud, put it in gear and SOLD! LOL. High revving V10 with an Eisenmann Race is out of this world. I was giggling up and down the highway on ramps.

Anways, they are both very different cars built for slighly different purpose. The M6 is a laid back, exotic sounding, rich dude's car, that can kick it when needed. However it does feel a bit heavy vs. the M3. The m3 is obviously more sporty and eager, however its not as luxurious inside or on the highway.

Both fabulous cars, I think I was ready for something larger with more luxury for my needs - I drive on long, straight, flat roads everyday - so the M6 fits the bill. Plus the V10 is to die for.

I'll miss the M3... its last of the amazing high revving M cars and has a classic but aggresive design... enjoy

I had an 05 M3 ZCP with SMG and loved it. As a manual driver, I actually like the feel of it. I've driven the DCT, its soooo smooth its amazing. I kept backing off the gas during upshifts, as I'm driving a manual or SMG, and the owner kept telling me I dont need to do that in the DCT

I tried auto mode in SMG, its a joke - the shifting was making me ill. Good thing I love shifting myself!

Well, I am contemplating the same thing, a trade-in with a 08 M6 with 18k miles, and two years CPO. Not seen yet the car as is not local, I'll plan the trip, but I am afraid of the SMG gearbox, I heard is not very reliable. Even though is covered by warranty, I won't like being stranded on the road waiting for the service car to pick up. And the clutch, it doesn't last too much and very expensive.
So I don't know, I guess I need to see it first.

Enjoy your M6!!

Why do people feel the need to come in here and say something negative?



But besides that, thanks for the wealth of info captain obvious regarding the m3/m6 comparison on the track.

+1

I know someone, that told a friend of one of my friends' cousins, that he drove an M6 once and the right rear window rattled once during a slow turn to the left. My M3 does not do that, so there!

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
