E92 M3 vs F12/F13 M6 ?

So I have a Bmw M3 Lime Rock Edition as my daily for the last 6 years and put about 31k miles on her. Fully loaded 6 speed.

But...

The other day I got offered a 2014 M6 Competition Cabriolet Black/Black Loaded for a equal trade. 24k Miles

I like how the M6 has more luxuries and the Cabriolet aspect plus it being a DCT (Auto) for daily A to B stuff.

Would I hate myself "if" I traded ?


I had a C63 P31 2012 (Sandy) Then my 2013 6-Speed Lime Rock M3 2013 = (????)

I don't like the F8X or F10's

I went from a C63 to an F13 M6 and I love it, still has that big V8 feel (but obviously doesn't sound as good)

I'm not sure about a Cab though after having an E92, there is a lot of extra weight in the M6 chassis already and the Cab makes it heavier again. Perhaps see if you can spend some time in it?

I once owned an E93 M3 convertible. I recently purchased a 2016 M6 convertible. If you're not tracking..... the M6 is by far a superior car. The extra weight is not as extreme with the M6 vs the M3 hardtop convertible. The M6 feels way more stable at high speed than my M3 did. I test drove an M4 convertible before looking at M6. I was not impressed with the M4 at all.
Love my M6

That Lime Rock M3 seems to keep appreciating in value, if anything I would keep it for a few more years and put less miles on it. The M6 values will start falling like a rocks when all the 8's make their way out to the streets, IMO.

I came from a E90 M3. I say a F12 is not an upgrade. You should aim for a F06 or a F13 with ZCP, and ideally 6MT and it'll change your life.

I have a 2010 M3 coupe 6-MT and a 2015 M6 coupe DCT and they are very different cars. The M6 is much more luxurious , better for long trips, more planted at high speed and obviously much faster.

The M3, as you know, has a much more engaging driving experience, you feel and hear everything. There are many times I actually enjoy driving the M3 more because of these factors.

Only you can answer if you you think the M6 is better for you. If you like a more raw feel, keep the M3, if you like luxury and power, go with the M6.
