    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.

    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.

    hampton is the new green frog

    don't think we need more pics of a base cayenne bro but congrats

    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
