Cars We Drive! - Page 682

post #10216 of 15715

The 'do it all' is the common choice; witness the proliferation of M3s and their ilk. It is a compromise, though, and a frustrating one. I went with the former route and drive a used Pontiac Grand Am as my daily (my father has one that is over 250k miles and still going strong, so I figured what the heck), and picked up my M Coupe for fun (was trying for a Lotus Exige S, but that was a tad out of my price range 4 years out of college with loans). But I like specialization, and would have felt compromising keenly, and also would have not wanted to DD my 'nice' car. The M Coupe already has a frustratingly high number of stone dings with less than 20k miles put on it.

What say you all?

I thought you already had your answer.

I like the one car gt do it all concept, the abuse is frustrating unless you have a true collector car. Cars are meant to be driven and I'm sticking with it unless we're talking gt3 concept which I would still drive the fuck out of just not every day.

Think I might pick up a 6 gran coupe next year and to be honest I think the sport body kit looks better than the M6GC (though I prefer the engine obviously).

We're in agreement on this. I believe in driving my cars anywhere and everywhere possible. I like luxury and high performance so a car that fits both criteria works well for me.

I just don't like the idea of putting junk miles on a good car - not the service requirements or anything, just that I don't like too much wear and tear for such unimportant drives. The 6GC is beautiful, best BMW made in the past decade. I actually prefer the standard non-M sport kit on that car as the venting on the front bumper is lower visually, and the rear M-sport bumper is rather ugly IMO. I feel like the M-sport kit isn't detailed enough for bodywork that is quite intricate - the standard bumpers are just the right balance.

drove the F-type S and V8 yesterday. V8 will most likely be the next car unless I can swing a used bull.

my top 3 most beautiful cars sold today, non exotic, are:
F type
6GC
RS5

Love it. I had the 745 and wanted to change to a 645 or a 650. But changed my mind and went for a SUV.

 

What year is this?

Anxious to see what car maker is the first to release the IOS integration. Will be in the market for a new car by then.

I doubt the regular 6 or GC will be collectible, so I wouldn't care to be honest and BMW has a good residual value, so....

I'm the exact opposite, I find the stock bumpers bland and not aggressive enough.

Beautiful.

What color?

The "one vehicle does it all" is why I'll probably never get out of an SUV.

re: the mileage thing, they're not junk miles if you've enjoyed driving them

gc is one of the few cars bmw makes that looks good in both stock and m trim, i'd be content with this but not the color and shadowline
