Traded my 12 M6 Vert for 14 M6 GC

After two weeks of back and forth with the dealer, I finally took delivery of a 2014 M6 GC and traded in my 12 M6 Vert. It's Tanzanite Blue, Opal White leather and white ash wood grain trim. B&O system is awesome!

That is an OUTSTANDING vehicle! Congrats.

Why the switch from drop-top?

Too short of a season up here in the Northeast for convertibles and I like the idea of more room in the back seat.

I love the white opal look but am afraid it will show dirt too easily. Thoughts?

I don't think it would be any different than my Silverstone II on the M6 vert. I'm pretty diligent with cleaning the seats.

I think there's just not enough top down days in the northeast. And I like the additional space that the GC provides.

Well now ... my top is down mid March through late November ... and then even mid winter if it's warm enough

However, that 4 door coupe is one of the nicest I've seen, so congrats!

Nice ride! Crazy car! The white seats will get dirty fast. Don't wear a black leather jacket, I remember the beige interior in my E class, I had hard times wiping the seats...
With tinted windows the car will be just perfect.

Windows were tinted a week after I took those pics.

The Tanzanite Blue is a beautiful exterior color.

But white leather interior? Reminds me of an old Buick
