There are some differences on the LCI 650. Most dealers are giving 2008 M6 and M5 at 2% over invoice.

any must-have options?

does it feel limber, or like a fast truck (seems a little heacyy to me)?

Thanks
1. For sure get an SMG. The engine was made to go with the SMG. Just don't go by what you read in articles and magazines. I test drove the M3 at the track of Paul Ricard the other day and I missed the SMG from my M6 ALL the time.

2. With the coupe you get two cars for the price of one: a GT and a true Super Car for every day use. If you buy the convertible you get 3 cars for the price of one: a GT, a super car (although a touch slower than the coupe) and a convertible. I'm happy with the convertible but that is a personal choice. Both cars look great IMO.

3. 08 looks fine although I'm not a fan of what they did to the trunk.

4. don't know what the option list is in the US but here they are pretty complete in standard config. I took the Individual package as an option but that seems to be non-available in the US.

5. How dare you asking if it feels like a fast truck Good word of advise: go drive one and you will understand what I mean.

PS: as with the Aston: I considered the DB9 before getting the M6 and decided to go for the M because of reliability (seems to be bad on the Aston and very few service points available where I live).

Keep us posted on your final choice.

I went by and looked at an M6 today. I was pressed for time, so I didn't get to drive it. Over the holidays, I think I will go back and drive one.

They didn't have any '08's - just an '07 (black on black coupe).

Looked better in person than it does in the brochure.

Thanks for the input.

You are welcomed. Please take enough time when you go drive it. I'm pretty sure you will be impressed with the car and remember ... SMG is something you need to get used to. This system is at its best when you drive the car at warp speed which can easily be achieved with this beast.

Keep us posted on your impressions and final decision.

Wow, you guys are tough. Not rare enough?? Aston?

What do you propose he get? A Fisker?

Audi R8 is my pick. You could say I'm biased, but that car is simply stunning, in every way. It does things that the V8 Vantage cannot, for the same price, and IMO it looks even better. The M6 is hot, too, though.

I'm going to wait a couple more weeks, and, believe it or not, see what the new CTS-V looks like.

I don't see too many around, and if the runors are right, a s/c pulley swap will get that car to 600hp and beyond. If that is true, it would be a real fun daily driver, that can haul my kids.

If that doesn't look good, then I'll do some serious comparo shopping.
