Hello,

I currently drive a 335, however I was looking to upgrade to a new m3 or used m6. On cars dot com i was seeing really good prices for used 2006 m6s for 70k with about 10 - 20k miles on them. That seemed pretty cheap to me for a 110k car. Do the 2006 M6's have problems or something? Or is the 2007 just that much better, that the 2006 have gone way down (if someone could tell me some differences that would help)? I just can't understand how the price drops are so severe for this car...any insight would be greatly appreciated. Also do you think its worth that price?

Thanks for your helP!!

I just bought a 06' two weeks ago with 11,500 miles on it for 70k exactly. I too would like to know if I got a good deal I'm rather certain it wasn't in any accidents. Its at the dealer getting the brake fluid changed and completely looked over. Will let you know if anything negative comes out of the service. I figured that its still under warranty so if there are mechanical problems it would be covered.

That's sounds about right. I got an '06 in November for $74k. It had 6k miles. High end cars usually take a nose dive off the lot because people who can afford them... like to buy them new.

The 2007 has a different tire pressure monitor system vs the 2006. I think thats he biggest difference.

I paid 73.5k for my 2006 with 8500 miles.. had a 3rd party inspection done.. it was perfect, like new condition.

no problems yet

sounds about right. 70K seems fair for an M6. but why not just get a brand new M3 for that price? i particularly dont fair to well with used cars. but its on you bro. good luck let us know what the final outcome is :)

Ya, i mean the new m3 is hot..no doubt about that. Handling maybe a little superior as well, transmission defnitely, however ...it just looks too much like a 335 to me. And in my area, washington DC, 335 are soo common. The m6 (at least in my eyes) looks far superior, its just a damn sexy beast of car. Plus, V10, 500hp..etc.etc. I would rather have that then a "common" m3. I just can't believe how fast the m6 depreciates!!! 70k...wow.

thats exactly how i feel. in south florida the 3 series are a dime a dozen.
there are plenty of 6 series around here as well, but the M6's are not as common.
besides if you get a new M3 you'll have to deal with that out the door depreciation.

lets not turn this into another used M6 vs new M3 thread.. theres more than one of those.

yes a used 2006 is very "worth it" and no problems and hardly any difference vs the 2007

Used M6

Got mine --a late '06 model with less than 4k on the clock...for way way under new sticker last July --but more than $70. And it went out the door with a BMW Financial new car lease, and the unexpired warranty.

Unless hit or abused the M6 is bulletproof -- plus you can always run the VIN and see the history. I sure would look at the printed history before I jumped in with both feet. Simple rule of thumb, no history no sellee. No issues for me except the Conti rubber that I just ran through. And I have the Dinan re-program so all is up to snuff.

I do agree that high-end machinas get slammed on depreciation --- had a Ferrari once that dropped 50% from new in 15 months. Turned out that whomever could afford a Ferrari could afford a new one --- why chance a used car ---particularly something as whacko as a Ferrari with NO warranty left. BUT the BMW unconditionial 4 year warranty is enough for me. I like being the beneficiary of someone's indecision/depreciation.

And not to hijack the thread ...but M6 vs M3 is not applicable to the question--This is an M6 forum.

I'd love a second M6 with 10k for $70,000 and some warranty left. Maybe I'll get one for the Mrs.

It really depends on all the options, color, etc.

White or Black seem to be the hardest and most expensive to obtain. I checked out a interlagos blue on white in Addison for I think $75k with 5k miles and a dinky hard-wired radar. I was really considering this car but the sales guy wouldn't work with me on this price with trade in on my 545i. He was kinda rude and said "Good luck getting a deal like this anywhere, it even has a $1000 escort radar" - like I was an idiot. So I bought a Black on Black with 4025 miles for 81,5 out the door the following week. That Interlagos Blue had been for sale for a long time and I prob would have bought it had the dealer not been a doosh to me.

It's way worth it, getting a car with such low miles is pretty much like getting a new one...almost. I don't have the money to spend on the MSRP mark up or to get a new M6 off the lot. I could have gone the Z06 route but I've wanted an M6 since they came out. Its a big car, I feel crammed in a 3 series and in a few months I can maybe get a used C5 Z06(depreciation...wow!:eek:oohhh:) in the low 20's to play with.

I just see it as incentive to work 12+ hour days to get ahead while I'm young. :haha::haha:
