BMW dealer trying to get me back (M6 vert content)

Post by 535dboy » Mon Apr 22, 2013 8:35 pm

The best aspect of my BMW ownership was the salesman who really was a top chap and would go out of his way to help you and even dealt with my aftercare - I barely spoke to the aftercare department because they were so <beep> !

My old saleman phoned me early Saturday morning and told me to come up with my driving licence and there sat for me was a new M6 vert for the day, all £102k of it

Well...................I still don't like it !

Sorry to those that have just bought or are soon to get an M5 but I think the sound is really not that exciting compared to mine.

Some of you will remember I had the new M5 for a week when they first came out in December 2011 and the lack of traction really wound me up but I partly put that down to it been cold and then wet. In this though I thought there were still major issues with the traction, even on a warm dry day.

For a car to drive to Monaco in it is probably one of the best but to have fun in it is not. I have to say that I prefer the old M6 to this one, even with its dodgey gearbox. I think my main gripe is the power delivery of the turbo and that is why I much prefer NA or s/charged cars.

Anyway couple of pics for you and it is safe to say I wouldn't buy one (even if I could afford it!) and would much rather an R8.

Disagree on the sound i was concerned at first but loving it now with the M5 - it sounds great.

If i was after a 2+2 coupe though i think i would go for the 911 or GTR - no way would i go for the M6 I've just never took to the 6 series - why i don't know, its just one of them cars I've never liked the look of, you either like it or hate it.

Nice colour that M6 though !!!
Gone but not forgotten boohoo !!!

I was hoping you would miss this...... :)

The colour is stunning like yours is - the main colours for each model I think.

That looks amazing! My mates a master tech at BMW and he sent me a picture a few months ago of an M6 and it looked exactly like that, stunning. but im sure from a AWD to RWD is not good.

True, nobody mention this at this years ADI please!

She is actually a size 10 or 12 so it's not too bad. Still a few pounds woudn't hurt!

Bam is probably more interested in the bra size to be honest

You can piss on a grey RS4, I don't own one of those. Also, if, just after I show 'the little woman' your RS246 quote, you react by pissing on my car, do you think that might be seen as an admission of guilt?

I couldn't find an RS6 so had to settle with a 4.

Good advice on the browsing history, I got called up on that only a few weeks ago.
