The only thing Audi falls short on is the interior. The 6GC has the best interior IMO because it feels like it moves away from the rest of BMW interiors found in other cars (even though the cluster, radio, iDrive are the same).
I think the first generation CLS has been the only car to truly be a four door coupe. They ruined it with the 2nd generation. All they should have done was change the front and leave the rest the same

I love the car but it really does not look like a 4 door coupe unless I am missing something or it becomes more apparent in person. The series line is getting a little cluttered but frankly BMW can do that with their engineering might and have an answer for every segment. Where I think they may lose out a bit is the fact that their cars are not uber unique and different - buyers that want that will look elsewhere.

BTW anybody know what the tranny options for this are? Will it be like the 6er Coupe/Cab come with a MT or are we just sticking with the Automatic for the 4 door. Which brings me to my final point in reference to BMW Canada. If I want a sporty 4 door sedan that fits 4 comfortably and has that epic BMW feedback and driving experience what do I get? In the past I could have bought a 530 and 550 with MT and game was on. Now no 4 door car from BMW comes to Canada with rear wheel drive and MT other then a 3 series? Yes the M5 may and yes the M3 may but why do I need to spend crazy $$ with an insane engine just to get that mix. **sigh** maybe they will add the full leather option in the upcoming F30, problem solved

Just in from BMW rep - Canada will only get the 6GC in 4WD and AT. Question answered. **rolling eyes**

They are all ugly and pointless cars - this, the CLS, the A7. Yeah, it catches the eye alright....with it's ugliness.

Even if I had the money, I would never spend it on a hideous car like this one....or the CLS, or A7.

Good looking car. What is with that trunk space though? Seems wasted.

It looks good overall, but the front overhang is too long. The numbers confirm that. It has exactly the same wheelbase as the 5 but overall length is 4" longer.

It has good parts but I am not happy with many design details that ruin the general feeling about the car: interior design-seats, dashboard, panels and instruments, headlights-too tall bulky and out of place, lower fromt led strips and markers below headlights, crease line in the front fenders, side mirror shape. They spent much time sketching and erasing and finally came up with this but I don,t understand why they were approved because again they ruin the good balance.

I love BMW but this design falls completely flat in comparison to the A7 and especially CLS. The final design replicates a sedan. Not a gran coupe like the concept. Still, I'm sure BMW enthusiasts will love it unconditionally.
