Used Car of the Day: 2007 BMW M6

Today we bring you a 2007 BMW M6.

The pickings are a bit slim today, so I snagged this sleek-looking coupe that apparently has some issues, including transmission troubles. It also appears to have some modifications. The listing is a bit hard to read and translate from Bimmer-ese to English but it appears that some of the maintenance work has been done and the transmission was addressed but perhaps still needs work.

It also appears that the headline sags.

This car is based in North Dakota and the mileage appears to be around 132,000. It has some carbon-fiber bits and the windows look tinted in the image. Our seller is asking $8,000.

    The listing appears to have been taken down since Tim posted the link to it. Here are the extended cliff notes on the car's history:

    -It was modded.

    - Previous owner went full broke from getting most of the 100k-mile overhaul done.

    - Current owner continued the good fight but is demoralized by more wear and failure regardless. The car has an SMG (yuck!) that made an unsettling noise, then threw error codes pointing to the pump. So the car is a liability to drive at best, a lawn ornament at worse.

    - The seller is mechanically adept and thinks they can replace it, but isn't keen to, and has their eye on something newer and less problematic (X5 M).

    - Personal opinion: this generation of 6 series hasn't aged well.

    Hard pass for me.

      There’s a Wheeler Dealers episode where Ant removes the balky SMG unit on an M3 and converts it to a manual transmission. I can see this occurring on this sketchy M6, unless it’s sold off for parts.

    "Our seller is asking $8,000."

    Wow, kinda reasonable but still a tad too high given risk.

    Btw for some reason the Z4 "M" is 11,750 with those miles, my brain initially crashed trying to reconcile below wholesale and upon reboot realized I wasn't looking at "M6"

    I wouldn't take it for free; you could spend as much in the first year's repairs.

      To your point, probably worth more in parts.

    The visual effect of black paint and black wheels and minimal brightwork is very visually distinctive; I wonder why more people haven't thought of it.
