A huge improvement over the old 6-series in terms of cosmetics. The Gauge Cluster is now lit in white/blue? Nice!

BMW's were never known for spacious back seats (except probably 7-series), so no surprises here.

Wow guys, did you hear that? We don't have to "lean down to get to the (seat) controls anymore."

That's way worth the eighty grand this car will cost!

psych. The only thing I care for is the hood (just a little bit) and the cluster gauge. The "sharkish" front end appeals to me not at all.

If they put that cluster in the new F30/F32 I'll pay an extra two or three G's for it. Having had strictly BMWs for the last few years that dull orange is growing on me, alot. Hondas have cooler clusters than us..

I actually don't like the new white gauges. The BMW orange was designed in that specific colour for a reason. It's the only colour in the world, that regardless of brightness, will not adjust your eyes to itself in an otherwise dark scene, which obviously minimizes eyestrain. With the new white gauges, your eyes will adjust to the light from the cluster, which makes you see less of the darkness. This only matters if you are in a pitch black area without street lights, though.

But I've heard that the gauges turn orange in darkness. Is that true?

I like the way the car looks but the rear hasnt grown on me.

the "shark" look is definitely the right look for the 6.

has the interior grown smaller in this version? since many complained of its small rear seating....

also a 4door was mentioned? bmw making their won mb cls?

Visually speaking and in-line with every other BMW, the car looks much more stunning in "Non official BMW" photos and videos.

I really was on the fence about the exterior styling prior to viewing this video. I like it, Nice!

Yeah I think the gauges are white/blueish when the lights are off (daylight) and then they turn red/orange when the lights are on (nighttime). I think it's because it's using the black panel display that it's being lit blue in the daylight.

Horrid. As a BMW fanatic, this new design is embarrassing.

For anyone to say this car is beautiful, is crazy. An Aston Martin is beautiful, this is not.

At $90k+ base price, what a joke?!
