Thanks for the kind words, they are 21" and I have updated the original post. I think 21" is the perfect size for the Gran Coupe.

I think 9 and 10 spoke wheels fit the gran coupe well.

While the mods look nice, I have to say that the more I see the GC, the less I like it. The coupe is such a sexy looking car, and the GC just seems sort of like a supermodel with 2 kids. I mean, it's still a great looking car, but I think the coupe is hotter.

I disagree. First of all I think the above car looks sick! Good work!

As for the GC, i think BMW did an amazing job for the design. The GC vs coupe ... different cars even though they have the same moniker.

LOL. Very clever observation. It's unavoidable when the two front doors get shortened to make way for two extra doors for a car still named a "Coupe". Perhaps BMW should have called it a "6 Series Quarte". Then both the supermodels and supermoms can join the party. Both cars look great nevertheless, just different.

Might be the best looking GC I've seen to date.

As for the discussion of which looks best, I'll join in.

I'm a coupe man at heart. Love big coupes, especially sweetly modded. But the 650 is so big. Too big. It isn't very sleek. The headlights are too bulbous. The rear is too tapered. So although it looks very nice, it isn't very coupe-like for a coupe.

I am usually not a fan of the 4-door coupre genre. Thinks it's kinda silly. In this case, the extra doors fit the 6 series girth better. Way better. Although I wouldn't buy one, I think the GC looks better. The design flows better all the way around.

I would buy a coupe though....and suffer its shortcomings happily.

It looks great with the upgrades!
Both the coupe and GC have the best design in their classes, especially with M Sport Pack
