I made the step from a 450D to a 6D - it's bigger in the hands and feels much better built, I've been happy with the AF of the 6D, especially with low light and my faster lenses. I sold my 450D and 18-55mm for £250 - Havin owned it over four years, it cost me £50 a year. I also sold my 15-85mm for £400 - that cost me about £70 a year to own, I've a 10-22mm to sell yet, hopefully soon.
I bought the 6D as a split kit, I didn't want the 24-105mm lens, I was then tempted by a second hand 17-40mm, but ended up slapping the cash down for a new 16-35mm f2.8 II, to go with my 50mm and 135mm primes. I plan to buy a 24-70mm f2.8 II in the next 9-18 months, it's a planned upgrade, but I'll probably buy on a whim ;-)
Overall, since upgrading, I've been overwhelmed with the quality of photos I'm getting, a real step change in light gathering ability - I would strongly recommend one extra thing though - buy Lightroom 4 and shoot in raw to get the most from your new purchase regardless of it being a 6D or 5DIII
