Why not just get a low mileage CPO BMW M6? The M6 obliterates the competition! Nothing like that 500HP V10.

M6 is definitely way more fun to drive and looks a lot nicer and aggressive than 650i. I am leaning more toward the M6 over the 650i as its more unique and fun to drive.

2007 M6 versus 2007 650i coupe?

Hello fellow Bimmerfans,

I am looking at either an M6 coupe or 650i coupe as my next BMW. How reliable is the 2007 BMW M6 versus the 650i coupe? I like the power and thrust of the V10 in the M6 as...

Lotus Elise or Exige?

My favorite track and sports car is the Lotus Elise and Exige S.

Greedy San Diego BMW dealers and 335 coupe price gouging

I like the 335i better for the money and power

Both are great cars. I test drove both and while the 550i has more comfy seats and plusher interior and is smoother than the 335i, the 20k price differential cannot justify it for my pocketbook. That...
