About to pull the trigger
Found a 2007 M6 coupe with 55k miles that I am very close to buying. It is Sepang Bronze Metallic, has the extended (?) leather (leather on the dashboard) and all the goodies that go with an M6. Is there anything I should look for in particular that I would give me a warning sign? btw, not my first BMW, but will be my first M6. Thanks.

Look for a third pedal, if it doesn't have it, run ;)

Anything else?

Take the VIN to a BMW dealer and get a service history?

20ducks 11-25-2012 01:56 PM

Getting an SMG (sorry to disappoint some) and got the service history from the dealer it originally sold from.
I mistated the exterior color as Sepang Bronze. The exterior is actually called Stratus Grey Metallic but it looks different under different light conditions. I am not put off by this color but I have never seen a paint change so much...any comments on the color?

Warranty? Available one?

20ducks 11-30-2012 06:08 PM

Nope, no warranty on this bad boy.

I had a deal on an exact car like yours to trade with my 09' 650 cabrio with 64k miles. I didnt do it because that m6 didnt come with warranty. I think u better fine one. Its an amazing beast but I heard from people maintenance and warranty out of your pocket is somehow not favorable.

Did u get the car?

20ducks 01-21-2013 08:56 PM

Sure did. M6 with Silverstone Merino Li leather upgrade, HD radio, SiriusXM Sat, brand new Michelin PS AS Plus II's. This is just a gorgeous car with power to be in that special league of cars. So far, so good!

20Ducks. Nice job on the new ride. Can u shoot a couple pictures on here? Im in Oregon, debating between a convertible or Sedan? 2009. The problem with the sedan is the carbon fiber roof, no sun roof!!

Post up some pics. Be sure to watch out for the SMG, as that can cost a fortune.
