Iím quite taken with an M6GC at the moment. Seems to be about £40k for a 2015 ish car.

Anyone have any experience of ownership, or opinions in general? Any options a Ďmustí or anything to skip? I was tempted by B&O but itís hard to find and I believe the HK is very good anyway.

Iím just gonna pretend itíll fit in the garage and claim to be surprised to the mrs, when it doesnít.

I have looked at these on and off for a couple of years now. Prices seem to be all over the place. I get a feeling they will drop a bit now as they are already starting to do so and the higher price ones are just sitting around.

Spec wise I dont think anything is a must, it comes very well equiped as it is.

B&O would be nice but like you said its very rare.

I would get adaptive LED and surround view, especially the latter as the GC is a LARGE car with less than perfect visibility.

99% sure adaptive LED headlights are standard on the M6GC since release.
Surround view is a nice to have but I wouldnt say its a must

Ahahaha it is a big car but i love it also its quite rare for a bmw you don’t see as many around as you do other m models so it has a sense of exclusivity I guess also that means it comes with a lot of attention to
I think the interiror is an absolutely beautiful place to be as well
I too wanted B&O but had to settle for harmon kardon as the one I got had a lot more to offer such as
White (my preferred colour)
Comfort seats
Heated steering wheel
Rear heated seats
Surround view
Soft close doors

Thanks guys. Still deep in thought. I agree though, I have surround view on my navara (I still hit something, doh) it’s got to be high up the list, not quite a must have though.

Had a coupe for 8 months. Lovely machine. Insanely fast but not chuckable around B roads at all and very heavy. Loaded with kit as standard - adaptive LED, reversing camera, HUD, Harmon Karmon all standard.

Extremely thirsty - I was averaging 16mph for my daily commute. Turned heads everywhere.

I also got a coupe. CCB, CP, B&O etc. Can't really think of anything to replace it with without spending another £20-25k on top.

I think this is probably going to be the longest I've kept a car.

Im sure in the earlier days when I was doing my usual car porn research apparently the M6GC handled/felt better than the M6 coupe.

Have you kept the car standard or modified it?
I am looking more and more at a coupe M6 2014-2015

They are a great car and as has been said, they are big. Harmon Kardon sound system is great. Had it in my last 3 cars and can't fault it. My new F10 M5 has B&O but I would struggle to justify having paid £2k as an upgrade for it. Surround view would be helpful as you have a long bonnet from where you sit to sticking your nose out at junctions. Soft close doors are nice feature but again not necessary.
Enjoy the shopping.
