    wouldnt mind picking up the new version in a couple years so i dont take the blunt of the massive depreciation that flagship german cars usually sustain

    I don't know why but the headlights on the new M6 bugs me.
    It just looks awkward and small and soft to me.
    Rear is so much better than the Bangle butt though.

    beauty is more than skin deep (and taste is arbitrary, capricious and in the eye of the beholder)
    this thing is beautiful under the skin (although looks aren't high on my list or priorities for machines, women, another matter entirely) I like its industrial/functional cut

    I'd go for the M5 though, something about a 4 door faster to 150 mph than the newest GT-r

    She can't drive stick? Best advice buy a stick, so she does not drive your car.

    Stop buying cars to please your girlfriends. Like I said before, unless you're marrying these chicks, then buy the damn car for yourself. If she leaves you or breaks up, you'll just regret that shit.

    I let my mother drive one of my cars in the past... 97 Acura TL 3.2L, she managed to blow the head. I don't how how, but the car was in overall good shape. My stepfather replaced the engine. She drove it for a few more days and then the transmission started to act up. My stepfather let her drive the Land Cruiser, she backed it into a tree... Her current car the body work is original, but the wheels are terribly rashed.

    Personally, I say let them drive there own crap or rent a car... With that said, when I need a car I just take mothers... I know how bad this sounds/look.
