Love those headlights, still!

You can start to see the relationship between the F20, when you look at the front of this car.

And if you kind of squint when you look at the pictures, you can imagine what the F32 will look like

So, I guess The US will not see any kind of 640, whether it be "i" or "d"?

Absolutely one of the best looking BMWs period! I wish they would've displayed it in Vermillion (a color that looks good on every single BMW) or BMW Individual Citrus Black Metallic.

This may seem like a silly point, but I'm an audiophile, so I'll ask...

Will BMW be using Bang and Olufsen on all of its future models? Are the Harmon Kardon days over? They're both good, but I prefer B&O.

I hope so!! but I think B&O will only appear on the high end models. I think 1, 2, and 3 will be still using harman kardon. I am a big fan of B&O on the 6 coupe!

I saw this car in both days, just came back from IAA.

This is really Imola Red, I checked it from tab. But it didn't work very well with 6er. Pretty dull, in nature looks more like washed out, little but same as in the pictures where flash was used (lighter shade). Vermillion would be much more better I think. Imola is good for very basic machine like 1er.

There where at least 3 cars with Individual Citrin Black Metallic at IAA so obviously BMW didn't want to bring it to every single model. 6er cab was BTW wearing that colour...

This has been beaten mentioned many times but just in case, it's a law in Europe to have these things as day time running lights from 2012 or 2013. So it's not like anyone copying anyone. Just regulations. Like big side view mirrors or elevated bulky bonnets that shoot up and back when pedestrian hits them. No point to feel upset, BMW isn't copying anyone.

Seats are now Audi like - alcantara centre, leather on sides. GREAT. FINALLY!

As with my old E92 330d and current F10 535d, I opted for the M Sport package with Shadowline trim. However, I think the F12 & 13 both look best in standard and IMO the convertible suits chrome effect aluminium trim especially well as it emphasises the contrast between body and roof.
As others have commented, the Vermillion Red is a stunning colour, but it would visibly suffer too much stone damage during a typical Scottish winter.
I'll be getting my F12 640d in Orion Silver - can't wait until next spring.

I thought they were LED fog lights? Wasn't BMW experimenting with those?
The daytime running lights are technically the Angel Eye Halos and the strip just above them, no?

I am with you on LEDs. I think it would be cool if you could change the color of angel lights from white to red if you set from comfort to sport. Would it not? So benz or audi drivers would know to get the hell out of way.

You are correct on both accounts the Angel Eyes are the DRL's and the LED strips are foglights that operate independent of the main beam headlights
