Get a smaller vehicle if you are so in love with manual, 4 series will be wonderful, maybe?

I had E39 M5 before, yes it was fun, boy it was so fun, but too darn heavy car for a manual.

If you need to change a clutch you need to dig out in Ave. $4k & buying a used car at some point down the road you might need to change it.

Opinion is subjective though.
I don't think he was asking for opinions on whether or not this car was appropriate with a manual first of all? Opinions are subject as you said, but certainly one can understand and respect to keep their opinions to themselves when they are not asked for?

As to your statement about changing a clutch is also asinine... you know DCT cars also have clutches and they also have issues, which are way more expensive than the manual cars to fix?

I don't know of anyone with a manual S63 car who's complained about the cost of changing a clutch...

Back to the topic at hand - there were only around 100 6-speed M6 GCs, they are pretty rare, but good luck with your search!
