Pros

Takes well to Aftermarket upgrades, Really good Handeling car once suspension is upgraded.  True icon of the automibile industry and you will get thumbs up, stares, and people stopping you to know what it is!  LOTS of Parts also cross to the 5 series and 7 series cars so parts are abundant and inexpensive for a luxury brand! You will truely enjo the driving, RWD, LSD differential standard, Loves 17" - 18" wheel upgrades, and other performance upgrades. Engine is a Chain driven timing system and is good for honestly most likely the life of the car if taken care of, worst case is maybe you will need to change the timing chain tensioner MAYBE around 150,000 - 200,000 if it was driven rather hard!  Most EURO parts swap over easily!

Cons

Body parts like the front air dam, and rear Spoiler aka Wing are EXPENSIVE at around $500.00!!! Bumper Bellows aka Bumper ends are Crappy Rubber with thin steel that rusts out  and warp and are at least $150.00 USED to replace! With this age most of these cars have Rust, and I persoanlly hate Body work as do local body shops around here was quoted $5000.00 for a paint job (what a crock!).

Old Girl — I can actually say I do miss this car! Once I upgraded the suspension the handling was more like a 3 series car aka Big Go Cart basically! I also got greeat gas mileage out of the 5 speed transmission equipped 6er considering it has a 3.5l Inline 6. Much lighter, much better handeling, and more readily available parts then for my current Jaguar. You get thumbs up and people stopping you all the time, like what is that car, oh wow a BMW 6 series, WOW not seen one of those in years! True exclusivity without the LAmbo, Ferrari, Benz, Maserati, Prices. There is also still lots of sftermarket support and you can easily retorfit the car with a turbocharger from the Euro 745i period specific turbo car as it just swaps right over for supercar performance. Room is also good for taller drivers like I am, but rear seat room is truely only good for children or small adults under 6' tall. I still HIGHLY recommedn one of these as long as it is not a rust prone freak. Make sure to look for no rust on the rear wheel arches, rocker panels, and no under side rust especially near the floor board vent holes (Typical rust Spots on these cars!). Great car also for Drifting, track racing, or a daily driver. I got 20mpg in town in my 5-speed car, although had upgraded injectors and adjustable Fuel pressure Regulator Two great upgrades, and a performance chip from Dinan.

Black Beauty — This car is an amazing with handling, perfect car for any weather. The ultimate dream car, can even fit two baby seats in the back. Gas is the only thing you have to shell out money for. BMW has great coverage

Pros

Power, handling, convertible top opens/closes quickly

Cons

Gas consumption

45

Love The 6 Series! — Sooooo much fun to drive! Gas consumption seems unusually high - you can almost literally watch the gas level drop as you drive... Performance is awesome - AMAZING acceleration and fabulous handling. A bit pricey for what you get with this car - especially since this one is manual transmission - but one of the best sports cars we've ever owned!

Everything...

Price Tag...

2008 Bmw M6 — Great car and worth the enormous price tag. I bought the M series and then completely customized the exterior, but the M series interior was too well done to touch. I test drove the 650i and it was nothing short of outstanding, but I would not settle for anything less then the M series. If the cash is there I would definitly recommend the M6 for anyone in a mid life crisis (lol), or for a fast and luxurious car that defines BMW on all levels.
