Poor visibility when backing is certainly a problem on this car (as well).....
But with PDC, probably rear camera and possibly surround view as well it should be easy to avoid that folded license plate

I don't know if it's the wheels, but the front overhang seems to be a little too long...

Yeah, this car would look completely different with a set of 20" sport wheels.

No a fan at all of the BMW 6-series Gran Coupe.

I'm not liking the car. It's not the color - the car. The style looks fantastic on the coupe and vert, but it just doesn't do it for me on the sedan.

Just because you *can* do it, doesn't mean you should. I assume the GC exists to compete with the Panamera, the Mercedes CL, etc. But the GC doesn't have the same lines - it's just a longer 6 with extra doors. Thoughts?

Wow, saw a gran coupe arrive at the dealership today in Moscow. Really can't wait to test drive one, cause I'm considering swapping my F10 for a Gran Coupe.

I like the style of the GC, but I see it as just a more stylized and more exclusive (and much more expensive) 5-series. And after five 5ers, I'm very seriously considering it.

Has anybody tried out the rear seats of the GC yet?
Hopefully they are as comfortable as in the Panamera
