Definetly hanging onto my m3 for life and in a year its sadly going to be stepping out of bmw and into a new 991S.

If you were going to spend that money on a HUGE coupe, why not go for an Aston? At that price point of 140's for a car, you are looking at people who probably could easily afford 240k as well so choosing the m6 does not make much sense. The aston is twice as beautiful and sleek, has a beautiful engine note and is spectacular legendary car.
I don't agree that people that could afford a $140k car necessarily could easily afford a $240k car. I'm one of them!

I'm shopping around for 991S though and waiting for 991-4S announce at Frankfurt auto show to finalize my plan. I'm though interested in M6 just so my 11 and 8 yrs old kids can comfortably sit in the Bach vs uncomfortable road trips on 991.. I'm really torn now...again I'm not going to even think about spending anything north of $135K....but man, BMW's resale drops like a rock and 991S drive is just so sublime and addictive...I'm so puzzled!
