    Prices are pretty significantly different, IMO.

    That's a lot of money for a 5 series after having one for a loaner car.

    Besides that though, what you just showed was an M6 costing 10,000 euros more with 22,000 more km on it. I'm also guessing gas mileage is more heavily weighed in Europe.

    No radar / laser in each case. The cop was on Haskell and saw me from the side and pulled me over about .2 miles away.

    I don't know where the cop was on mockingbird. He appeared out of nowhere.

    Yeah, diesel cars holds value better, also it's before danish car tax. :ember:

    A brand new M6 is base trim is 124.000€ and I found a couple cheaper ones on a german site yesterday (which I assume you guys don't read).

    I wonder why BMW haven't fitted the 50xd engine to the 6 series, when it's available in 5/7/X5/X6.

    The thing is though, in the US you could get a $125k M6 for close to $100k brand new at one point (I think it was 2013s when 2014s were coming out).

    Tough decision... I'd take the 991 if it were a Carrera S. Otherwise, M6 coupe.

    Though, a $100k CS would be poorly optioned and less refined inside than the M6's interior.

    Used, obviously. Would be a tough decision I think. I think I'd go with the M6 based on rarity alone.

    For sure. Still can't stop thinking about that Cayman S I drove. What a fantastic car.

    No, I didn't get tagged/pulled over. But I was very surprised about it.

    Unless you track your car often, M6 easily. Better looking, much nicer interior, more rare, and better technology. The 911 will hold value better though.

    Did you test it with the chrono package? Makes a big difference. The car is so small though.

    You can get a discount here as well, but the B&O stereo is a 5000€ option alone, so it runs up very quickly, my guess would be there's at least 30k in options on all of those cars.
