So what? My 2016 M6 has 190K miles with the original clutch. If you know how to drive them properly, a clutch lasts longer than an engine rebuild.Clutch is over $2000 price from the dealer, hrb is another $300 I believe, and then at least $2,000 laborz
I have been driving manuals since 1972. I have replaced 1 clutch, that was in 1973 in my first car. That taught me to not slip the clutch unnecessarily. I sold my GTO at 127k with the original clutch. My Wrangler has about 135k with the original clutch. 99.99% of my driving is normal around town and the M6 makes it 10,000% more fun than a A8. Yes the A8 is faster, but this debate is getting outright pathetic. I am an old guy and I plan to keep the M6 until I can't walk to the garage!So what?

Agree, but unfortunately it will never happenFor the skip shift, either learn to drive the car to prevent it (it's actually simple to do) or spend $20 on a kit to eliminate it.
The auto is faster argument coming in 3......2.......1.......
Maybe one day we can have a manual thread without the same old constant BS dumped into it. Just maybe, one day some people will understand some people don't care about speed and care more about fun and the M6 is more fun for a certain type of person. Not everyone but their are still some of us old dinosaurs out their that prefer it. Cause if speed is all I cared about I WOULD NOT have bought a hellcat. Couple years ago we could brag but their are several cars out their faster than HC's for less money.
