Looking to get into a 2007-2009 m6 convertible and was looking for a guide of what to look for as far as issues. So far I have;
-some type of warranty that covers engine tranny smg rear ac etc. must have!
- issue with convertible top
- pull bmw records for service
- Carfax
-how to pull codes?

Don't know these cars at all so looking for some help from those that have purchased used and what to look for. I am currently in a '10 535i with a tune and it's been a great ride but it is a cpo until 2016 so really haven't worried too much. Planning on putting current ride up after the new year then really look to buy after that.

Not to scare you but it is an expensive car to fix. For me these are the problems I have had so far. Mind you I fixed most of these issues myself except the tranny problems I took to the dealer.

-Flywheel and clutch replaced at 51k miles ($4k)
-Clutch position sensor replaced ($1800)
-both throttle actuators went bad ($1500 total)
-ionic current controllers replaced ($250 each)
-Spark plugs ($250)
-O2 sensor replacement ($250)
-Oil and filter are between $150-200 if you change it yourself
-CIC (nav system) failure because of leaking water in the trunk
-drivers side door assist not working
-window catch not working
-HID ballast failures on both lights ($150 each)

Whatever you do just make sure you get the extended warranty, all of this was out of pocket for me. Otherwise such a pleasure to drive when it is working. The looks I get with my black on black on black car is always pleasing.
