Good luck with your search! I like the green one: http://www.bramley.com/carsales/deta...oupe/11348.htm pretty unique and a mental spec!

Agree - there's a lot of basic spec cheap lease M5's coming back on the market in the last year, most leases are low option spec to keep the cost down.

It seems the used M6 prices have dropped to reflect the circa 70k discounted new price of these cars.

12 months ago dealers were trying to sell 1yo cars for 1000's more than you could buy a new one for!

That car has been for sale for ages, beautiful spec but I don't think the British racing green colour suits the M6. That would work on a Jag but not a BMW IMO. Suppose the hunt continues for a SMB

Yes its been there for at least 8 months, i also would disagree with the description, its advertised as 2015 car, but check out the headlamps and centre screen all of which are pre face, i could be wrong. Never the less it looks nice, though would take some nerve to buy that combo. There is a also a purple one on the AUC at 80K

Pre-LCI were made through to February 2015, so it could well be a 2015. Nice car and I like the colour combo but it has been for sale for ages.

Competition Pack style 601M.

You pay extra for the competition pack and get wheels, in comparison with the 343M, that are cast and not forged, cheaper by about 50%, heavier by over 2Kg each and are not as strong.

But if you pay for the competition pack you can still choose 343M wheels, but get no discount.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the 601M.

Exactly. As the only forged option available from factory the 343M wheels are the best choice. Both black and silver options are forged.

I ordered the 601M having specifically asked if they were cast or forged and told they were forged. On finding they were cast I had them swapped to 343M at no cost (after a lot of argument!).

Hi mate

Really enjoyed watching this clip, I have the same colour in M6 coupe. mine does need a bit of paint correcting. These guys look really professional. Where are they based? I'm in London BTW.

thanks

I had a single stage paint correction and 3 layer ceramic coating done at 5 months old, money well spent, it just cleans up so easy now and gleams with very little effort... even had the ceramic coating on the wheels (inside too) and calipers!

They do nice videos of the cars at the detailers....
