1st 650i Gran Coupe Delivery in Hong Kong

Just took delivery of my 650i GranCoupe. Salesperson told me I was the first to take delivery of the 650i GranCoupe here (due to no small part of me continuously nagging and yelling at her for the past month)......

I just took the car back home and very tired but took a few snaps.....

And to anyone that thinks the 6GC is simply another form of the F10..... NO IT IS NOT! As soon as I pull away in the 6GC, I can tell it is a sport car, not a sedan! Suspension dampening is PERFECT! Absolutely none of the boat ride feeling from my F10 550i. And the steering..... Sports car feeling. And the car does not feel heavy at all! Cornering was perfect. All in All, this is what the F10 should have been.


Wait, no. Otherwise the whole street will be full of the GranCoupe

And I did strong arm my salesperson to look thru all the 6 series to look for a set of star spokes with Dunlop tires instead of the crappy Primacy HP ZP and swapped with mine

But too tired from driving to take more pictures.... Maybe tomorrow

PS. The new N63Tu is amazing! The tune on this car is definitely very different from F10.

Congratulations again! Can't wait to pick up mine which will be the first F13 650i in Macau. Traveling at the moment but will do that as soon as I return at the end of the month.

Extra for the ruby black, but worth it. Much less then other individual colors.
Tires.... Well, just say that I got my salesperson to fix the tyres issues. Nice exhaust sound. Strong enough for me, as I hate really loud cars.

How long and wide is the 6GC compared to the Panamera beside your parking slot?

The 6GC is very very slightly longer (not by much) and very slightly narrower than the panny.

I think BMW HK's Individual color pricing system is a mess at the moment. All the Individual color costs HKD40K (pre-tax) at the moment. I paid HKD29100 pre-tax. Didn't want to go for moonstone white or frozen bronze. You may try citrin black as well

But I like ruby black most

PS. The pricing for each individual color is different. So you need to get it out from your salesperson. I thought any salesperson dealing with your GC order should be treating you as VIP
