It certainly does!

Although I think the Gran Coupe looks fantastic, I'm too old for one. Too much forced induction, synthesized sound and flappy-paddle action going on for my taste! :lol:
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey & 108Ms. Cruise, Storage and pdc. 325ti Sport as a DD.

Na... I would still take the M6 GC :D ,

The exterior on those Astons is lovely but the interior is a massive let down, the sounds track is glorious though :thumbsup:

Think I'd stick to the M6 also. Seems like every time I go out I see a Aston on the road. The M6 is a really rare beast. Had a excellent review on top gear when they shipped it to Australia for some fun.

Nah - Aston every time - you don't buy cars like this on reason and logic, it's about the emotion. When you're dribbling in your wheelchair, would you want to be able to say you owned an Aston or a BMW? 8)

Think I would take the aston for the drama and sound. I want to love the GC but it just looks a bit bland to me? Handsome, mental pace but bland :?

They are absolute beasts you get a chirp in every gear it has so much power. Ultimate luxury, I also think they look the balls too.

When the non GC came out they were super unpopular and within 3 years BMW were selling 6 month old demos with under 6k for half the price with everything. Went to look at one with my dad and it had every option and a list of £127k 6 months old with 4,5k for £59,995. Went for a test drive and the power was biblical but just felt heavy compared to his 911 but fantastic super cruiser.

The extended leather is gorgeous and the options list is drool worthy! Didn't get one in the end because of more depreciation worries but they seem to have recovered and many are as much as they were when we were looking 3-4 years ago.

The M6 is one of my favourite Ms would love a V10 just the cost to fuel it is insane. There was a write up recently of one with 150,000 miles and the cost to fuel it over its life time was around £90,000 :rofl: :driving:

I love the M6 gran coupe,as does my wife,since we saw one a few ears back in BMW world,Munich....fully loaded at around 125k ISH.
Heavy depreciation indeed,but a future bargain imo.
