Just picked up 14 Singaphore Grey on Sakhir Orange M6 GC

We just took a trade in at work I couldn't pass up as I have been looking for a M6 Gran Coupe for a few weeks now and this one was just the one. 2014 Singaphore Grey on Sakhir Orange interior. Bone stock with 36,000 miles. Has all options but competition package. Has carbon roof which I really wanted as I never use a sun roof.

I have already ordered aftermarket wheels so I listed these in the classifieds area. Next I will be ordering downpipes, intake, carbon front lip, carbon rear diffuser, lowering springs, and have DME stop over to tune it. Will also add some other small carbon pieces and get rid of all the chrome that remains. Will update as I make changes.

Here are a few pics just from work.

Nice grab, wasting no time on the mods too I always assumed all the M6GC's had the Carbon Fiber roof vs. any other option.

Will be curious to see the wheel set-up as those OEM's I had and looked good but knew I would swap them as well. I always do!

I am close friends with the guys at RYFT. They are cutting me a set of 10 spoke 2 Piece wheels 20x9.5 and 20x11. Didnít want to lose too much ride quality or performance. So didnít want to go larger than 20ís.

Very cool, a brand I always wanted to work for. In a previous career path I worked for Aston Martin, Bentley, Maserati and Porsche, but only because there is no Lamborghini dealer in Minnesota

Growing up racing, my goal was to get into the Super Trofeo series and race full time there. I was never able to put together a full season, but I was able to do some testing weekends with the Huracan Super Trofeo car at Circuit of the Americas and Road America. By far my favorite race car I've had the chance to drive.

But I digress, congratulations on the M6 I'm sure you can relate that after being exposed to all sorts of highline cars, the M6 is definitely one that stands out. Enjoy!

Envious! No shortage of great products to be around and interesting clientele I'm sure I seem to find myself in Texas pretty often for various reasons (I actually bought my '16 M6 GC from BMW Austin CPO and drove it back to MN about two weeks ago) If I'm ever in the Houston area I'll be sure to pay you a visit

Oh man that's awesome to hear, what a cool story! I had a chance to drive the Huracan Super Trofeo (and a 458 GT3) in Modena, Italy last September and it was completely addictive, what a car. Can't wait to do it again when this pandemic subsides. Any videos from your experience? COTA would be a mega track to drive that car on. PM if you do, don't want to take this thread off-topic.

Installed the VRSF downpipes, VRSF charge pipes and had DME stage 2 tune added today. Dyno got rescheduled to next week to check numbers. Pulls hard and definitely sounds better. Will decide if I want to add rest of exhaust system after a week or two driving like this. The VRSF stuff wasn't bad for the price. Fitment was pretty much what you'd expect from this price point. Wasn't that great but I was able to make it work without having to weld anything or so anything crazy. Took about 2.5 hours to install the Downpipes.
