Thanks guys for your responses, but here are my takes on the three car choices: The SL 55 amg is definitely a nice car, fast and with amg you get a nice engine roar that for sure will make driving this monster an unforgettable experience. But the thing I started to dislike about the SL is that there are ALOT of them here! Not necessarily the AMG, but the SL here is as common as the E class or Range Rovers. Most of the regular SL's I have seen were being driven by women, the AMG's one were either being driven by younger guys or older men. I never saw a woman with an AMG lol. Oh and I also love the fact the SL has a hard top. Pretty darn good option and its hard to beat.
The Maserati GranSport is on the other hand a very rare car. I could not recall seeing any GranSport Spyder here. Plus the way you can customize your car, it is just simply amazing. You can choose even the color of the piping around the leather seats. The treatment I got at the dealership was amazing. They treat you like a king, and show you every step of the way how the car is made and what makes it so special. Plus it starts at $99k so it is cheaper than the SL AMG. The car price though sky rockets when you start adding all the options you want. Mine with all the options and special leather seating went to about $124k. The leather and interior materials I would say are definitely of a higher quality than both BMW and Mercedes. You feel like you're really driving an exotic car with the GranSport. Oh and the Engine rumble left me basically speechless!!
As for the M6 convertible, while I have never test driven one before, but what I hear from friends who have, is that it is a very fast car, with BMW handling. Very Sporty, and I like the M customizations of the body especially the front and rear bumpers and I liked the double exhaust spoke which all contribute to making it a true M. I first thought it might not look like a very special car cause it looks a lot like the regular 650, but trust me, once you see an M6 you would immediately know its an M6 lol. Though I have seen some people with a regular 650 customized to look like a fake M. To me that is definitely not attractive! I still need to test drive one to decide. I also have a few concerns about the smg. One thing that kind of annoys me about the M too is that it seats 4 people lol. I was more into a true sports car that would seat only two.
Well all of this might seem like it would help me make a decision, but I guess I am more confused now than I was before. I guess I have to wait until I test drive an M6 to make a final decision.
