Well, that is a bit more the 2c. I will say you are a little hard on them but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Like I said GTs are definite conversation starters !

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_tourer

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_6_Series

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_8_Series


Grand tourer characteristics Edit

The terms "grand tourer", "grand turismo", "grand routiere", and "GT" are among the most misused terms in motoring.[3] The grand touring designation generally "means motoring at speed, in style, safety, and comfort."[18] "Purists define "gran turismo" as the enjoyment, excitement and comfort of open-road touring."

I saw a 650i yesterday. Sure enough, it was ugly because BMW renamed the 5GT.

Many of the items in the 6GT aren't even available in the 3GT. Love the leg room of my 3GT but I really wish the interior was more like a 5. The 5GT is smaller than my 3GT. This might be my next car.

Yeah there is definitely an upgraded interior but is that worth 20k-25k?

Different Strokes for Different Folks. We have a 530d GT and my wife loves it. But with features reduced as let's face it the twin boot is virtually redundant as the tailgate is the preferred option. Have sampled a prototype of the G32 and about to trial the G31 which shows how dated the 5er GT has become. But those that love the 530d GT will love the 6er GT perhaps more? Especially when its previous complexities have been removed. That upper segment refinement is retained and emphatically enhanced.

I find the 2 mode trunk extremely useful for those who live in cold climate. Opening the small trunk prevents large volume of cold air rushing into the cabin.

All BMW touring have had that for quite some time. It is indeed a very useful feature

I don't mind it. It's miles better than the 5 GT. So is there no more GC? We have a 328i GT and it's a fantastic little car. Tons of room in the rear, and perfect for around town.
