I am selling as I want to make space for a new sports car!
Ask - $43750, 45K miles. No low ballers pls. Car is located in Seattle WA. Cell is 206 two-two- 8 4446.

M6's are rare -- but this car is one of the rarest in the bunch. The reason are

1. Only 10% of the M6's sold came (around 300) with a manual transmission. I would argue, the essence of driving a sports car is driver involvement and the buttery smooth BMW manual is a perfect complement to this car. The SMG (automatic) that comes with the M6 and M5 also have reliability issues, none of which are present with the M6. If you want to keep this car for a long time and want to wring out the V10 yourself -- it's the manual you want.
2. Indianapolis red is a very sought after but rare color on the M5 and M6. Most are black, white or silver. You have to see this gorgeous sporty yet restrained color in person. It dazzles in sunlight.
3. The car has a full leather wrapped interior with the coveted 'Merino' leather package from BMW. This is not standard on the M6's and is an expensive option.
4. The car has a light hand polished Madeira wood interior to provide visual contrast to the dark alcanatara headliner and black leather. This is also a rare option in the M6 - if you're getting an exquisite German car don't settle for machine polished aluminum, get something exotic!
5. It also has every option offered. (comfort access package, navigation system, bi-xenon adaptive headlights, heated seats, rear and front parking sensors so you don't hit a curb, seats that adjust bolsters, tilt etc!. . .see the list below)
6. My car has a $2500 dealer installed (and BMW authorized) Dinan exhaust that provides a civilized exhaust note that gets appropriate aggressive when you get on the gas and brings the V10 wail to life - driving through the business district in Vancouver or Seattle downtown or a tunnel is an affair that is guaranteed to bring a smile to any car enthusiast. The sound is incredible on full throttle and there is NO drone or intrusion during normal cruise (It's a Dinan exhaust after all and Dinan have a storied history with BMW).

When buying an M6 finding a pristine one is key -- if you're a perfectionist and want to buy the best of breed, my car should meet your needs. My car meets this criteria as I'm an obsessive car enthusiast, with a focus on the Obsessiveness. Read below for why!

1. I have all the service records available, including recent complete manual transmission service, regular oil changes with 10W60 synthetic oil (I DON'T wait for BMW's suggested 10,000-15,000 mile intervals for oil changes, instead changing them every 5000 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first), differential change, clutch drain, coolant, new spark plugs, new battery, Michelin Pilot Super Sports (fronts) with under 3000 miles on them and full Costco warranty (the rears are Michelin Pilot PS2's and have approx 1/3rd treadlife on them). Services were provided at BMW of Seattle and the 5 star rated local BMW specialists at 'Signature BMW'. The internals and mechanics are perfect. This car has never has a failure, breakdown or any issue other than regular service.
2. My car is unmolested, no engine modifications, no suspension modifications -- this is a rare car that will get rarer with time as more people crash them and modify them, I wanted to make sure it remains as close as possible to the day it came off the assembly line. It is my second car, so is driven on nice days and on commutes to Microsoft and back. I have autocrossed it once and it was a joy (I encourage a future owner experience the car in that setting, happy to share photos!).
3. The paint doesn't have one scratch. Not one. It's been washed at Park Place Luxury Motors regularly (receipts available), including 2-3x year waxes, and hand washes. It has never been driven through a car wash, I wouldn't dream of doing that.
4. I'm mildly OCD and no food is allowed in the car, the interior is pristine and the full leather leather is regularly treated with Chamberlains leather milk between details at Park Place. There are no nicks, tears etc. I have no kids and the generous backseats are untouched.
5. I have over $1500 of 3M full paint protecting clear-bra on the car to protect it from stone chips, bird droppings, insects etc. It covers the full front fenders, headlights, the full hood, the full A pillars, the rocker panels (where you enter and exit the car), the door handles, the rear quarter panels. Most kits are machine cut and only do a partial hood etc with an ugly seam/line that collects dirt and wax over time and also causes the paint to fade unevenly. I went with a custom hand fabricated job that is seamless due to full coverage -- you cannot tell there is a clear-bra on the car yet you get the paint protection provided. I've shown the car in various car meets/shows and would have it no other way. If you go for a road trip or end up with a gravel truck in front -- don't worry about the paint and focus on enjoying the drive.
6. I have also purchased a spare tire with tote for $410 (receipt available). The spare tire is rare (custom order) as BMW only sells them with tire glue (called tire mobility kit) for weight savings. The trunk space is huge and I felt uncomfortable driving around with glue to fix a tire tear. The spare tire will reduce any worry if your car has a flat as these cars are low and need to be flat-bedded -- If you are driving cross country you don't want to rely on a can of glue or an overnight at a shady place if you have a flat.
7. Clean title.

Full disclosure - Valet scratched the rear bumper in March (lesson learned, never valet your car) - repaired for $780 by Progressive and BMW Certified Pacific Autobody. I have the photo of the minor scratch, valet/insurance case #/report and receipt of repair.

Renewing. Reasonable offers welcome otherwise will trade it in when new sports car arrives! Rather sell to a private buyer who cares about the M6!

Fantastic car!

I'm in Canada and just bought a second BMW (E34 M5) a month ago. If I was ever looking at an M6 though, it'd be this one. Solely for the fact that I've never actually seen an M6 with a 6 MT before. GLWS!
