Totally agree with the Maserati points, also the maintenance is horrendous!

Good choice, Iíve still got my 650i and canít see me parting with it

I have the same colour/shape as this, but just the 'poxy' 3 litre engine - couldn't swallow the extra fuel costs with the V8, it's bad enough on the I6!

Do like the new shape M6 though - it is on the list of cars to own!

Lovely M6!

I feel your pain regarding Marlow bridge! I’m sure the widths restrictions are narrower than they say.

You might be surprised with the efficiency of the new twin turbo engine. Itís significantly more fuel efficient than the Merc was. It feels like Iím making far fewer trips to the petrol station anyway!
