Thumbs up New daily daily driver - '08 M6

Drove her home from Atlanta on Thursday... not a bad drive ~ 10.5 hours, 705miles. Got surprisingly decent gas mileage 20.2mpg @ 75.4mph not bad for a V10. Still getting used to the SMG trans, but the more I drive it the more I like it.

One unintended consequence, that I didn't even consider until I parked the M6 in the garage and my wife pointed it out... is that I now own three cars that are almost the same identical color. whoops

mook is probably the last person you want to take suggestions from when it comes to modding your car

take his advice if you want to take out a 2nd mortgage on your home or sell a child.

The 20 Most Expensive Cars To Insure


17. BMW M6
Average Annual Cost: $2627.27

What You Need to Know About It:
An F1-inspired V-10, chassis and driveline bits shared with the E60-chassis M5, and an optional carbon-fiber roof. Still, who would've thought that something that looks so... uh... interesting would be so damn expensive?
