Garage Mate for the M6

Having to want to do a some more track time and the obvious concerns about tracking the beast too much got me thinking of either a dedicated track car or another ///M. So here is my find, MY 2006, 22,500 on the clock.

Mission: Pick up car in Reno. Take a few side trips through Wyoming (American Autobahn), Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, badlands and deliver car to new garage mate. Five days, eleven states and over 3800 miles later the beast has a new friend.

This thing throws itself around the curves with as much zest as the M6.

SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND!

Randy,

A great addition and a nearly perfect track tool! On top of that you got the coupe which is more rare and, hopefully more valuable in the long run!! Congrats and thanks for sharing the pics!

Kindest Regards,
Milton

Great pick up Randy, your garage now looks complete! Would love to hear more driving impression from you later on, I've always had a soft spot for the Z4 M coupe.

Nice pics Randy!

On a side note, what branch of service are you?

Oh, and I wouldn't have picked anything better than the outfit in the picture: ///M or BMW shirt, pair of slacks and comfy sneakers!

Thanks Gene,

It's an ///M, it drives great. It handled everything I threw at it around the mountain roads. Very agile, best describes it.
