Out before I'm in... (UPDATE: Pics Changed to Attachments)

Hey guys, i've been lurking since I bought my M6 back in November and never posted/introduced myself. Well, tonight I ditched the M6 for a 2011 M3 Vert in Space Gray. Here are some pics of both


As far as a comparison, to me there is none. All the things that make a BMW a great car to drive are most strongly present in the three series.

BTW, pics provided by my iphone...

Thats too funny. I just sold my 2008 M3 Vert for an M6, because to me the M3 Vert really didn't represent what BMW has to offer because of the lack of luxuries and power.
No full leather option, no HUD, no Suede roofliner and then there is the power...dont get me wrong. The M3 is a quick car, but the convertible is just too damn heavy. I tried convincing myself for the 2 years that I owned it that it didnt make a difference, whats 450 lbs? No big deal! That was until I drove a stock M3 Coupe, and it felt like a rocket compared to my M3 Vert. (keep in mind, my M3 vert was modified too, with exhaust, pulleys, software and RPI Scoops, the M3 coupe was bone stock).

I could never go back to driving an M3 Vert because of the lack of power that I felt it had, maybe the M3 coupe would do the job as it is lighter then the M6, but it still has 100hp less.

However, the M3 vert is a ton of fun to drive, it still handles great for a convertible, and you can really enjoy the sound of the V8 with the top down.
Enjoy your new car, let us know how you think it compares to the M6.

Interesting that you wait to post on the M6 board until you change it out for an M3. At least you kept it in the family!

That is funny... how preferences and interpretations can be radically different from one person to the next.

I suppose i should've been a little more informative to begin with but here goes. My first BMW was my 2007 335i. Absolutely LOVED this car - not a single thing i didn't like (which is rare). Not the fastest car in the world, but by far the absolute best to drive.

At one point i looked at a 650i coupe with a 6 speed and after the test drive i couldn't wait to get back in my 335i. The 6 felt humongous (which it is), but i was expecting one of those "i can't believe this is a huge car" type of drives.

Some time later, I came across the M6, which felt like a totally different car than the 650i (I think most would agree with me), and after thinking about the swap and what the numbers looked like, i decided to make the change. I really liked the M6, awesome car, really special engine, but ever since day 1, i missed the 335i (i'm sure there are plenty of after reading that).

Anyway... I put about 800 miles on the M6 from last November to last weekend when i turned it in... basically it was just sitting in the garage (VA traffic is AWFUL!!!)

So far, I feel like i'm back where i belong, in my nimble little tank of an M3. Don't know about the performance yet because she's still breaking in, but based on expectations, i'm sure i'll be satisfied. Get your ready, but I don't consider M cars to be mind blowingly fast. They're quick, they're impressive, but if i want to go i'm buying something american and having a heads/cam package installed or forced induction.

To me this car (and my M6) represent class, luxury and performance in a well rounded package. They are in perfect balance and come together to make an incredibly enjoyable ride - I just find that the 3 series does it the best

I actually want a vert M3 as my second car, but I just sold my 69 Camaro and my wife isn't all about the car lot mentality so I will have to wait on that for a bit I guess...they are a blast to drive.

Just go buy one and bring it home. Then when she sees it, right when she gets ready to yell, interrupt her and say "Look what I bought you!!!"

It's worth a shot...

Wow... that's some hardcore thread jacking my friend

Anyway, that does bring up a point that helped with this decision which is i think the new 6 series/M6 will be nothing short of amazing (same goes for the M5), so if i want another M6 in the future, chances are it will be the one coming out (vs the E63).
