2008 M6 Opinions
 
A couple of questions.

The biggie is: manual or smg? is the M6 smg plagued by the same miseries that the m5 was?

next: coupe or cab? is the drop top loud at speed (with it up)?

has anyone seen an '08 in person?

any must-have options?

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

Thanks

defintely manual if it's the only car you're looking at.
coupe or cab is preference with cab obviously a lot louder. 08 looks the same for the M6. HUD and night vision are must haves IMO. It's a big and heavy car and if you have to spend 120K plus, there are much better cars out there..

997 turbo's, Aston Martin vantage v8's, noble M400's, used 05 continental GT's, 2000-2001 360 modena's, later model SL55's or Sl600's w/ the twin turbo V12's, 04 Gallardo's to name a few.

OK, then, back to the drawing boards.......

I was actually thinking 997 turbo, and my wife loves the Aston. I just don't think the Aston has enough performance. My 14 yr old daughter wants me to get a Viper or a Gallardo.

I think I'll just get a F150 and get it over with.

I vote for the Aston! Just how much performance do you want (or can you use?)?

a lot.

The BMW, Aston and Porsche are probably more user friendly and easier on the wallet with maintenance than some of the other choices...although I don't think you can go wrong with any on the list posted by SANguru

if you can get an Aston...get it, that seems like a no-brainer to me. A M6 is a common-exclusive car, same as the 997tt, but Aston are rare and they look great, in this league practicality should have very little to do with the decision, so it's pretty simply buy what you really like

btw the seats in the M6 really hurt my back, I drove one for about 2 hrs and had major back pain and I'm under 25.
