add Walter de'Silva to your team Mr Reithofer ...quick.

...I don't like the 6 series nor the F30 design...to many creases..it's going in a wrong direction in my opinion. "Butzi" Porsche (he sketched the Porsche 911) was saying "a good form comes from minimum not from maximum"...I cannot agree more. A good designer should know when to put the pencil down.

The GC is a 5 passenger car like the Coupe is a 4 passenger car. The back of my seat is against the front edge of the rear seat...

beautiful car. Kind of pointless for the (5th) seat but I guess they can say it has one.

Just because you drive with a gangster lean (or are eight feet tall) doesn't mean the back seats are too small. I'm 6'3" and a 5'10" person can easily fit behind me in my little 1 series.

With that said, the "middle seat" in the Gran Coupe is truly a joke. Just admit it's a 4 seater, BMW, and move on.

I do not like the front "chrome blades" LED's those make the car
Look Cheap.

The steering wheel with the white line is just ugly. We stopped making white walls on tires for a reason...let it rest

Last the only way this is a 5 passenger car is if you have a baby seat in the middle and the baby counts as a passenger hence they said "up to 5 passengers" otherwise its 4 adult passengers

Besides that. I really like this car.

Not bad looking but its just a more expensive and less practical 5 series.
The 4+1 seating is retarded. It looks like a mistake.
Who is this car for?

4 door sedan + allot of "marketing" = 4 door coupe
4 seats + allot of "marketing" = 5 seats

quite insulting!!!

This car lacks identity and honesty of purpose.
It is very confused.

What differentiates this car from a sedan? There are sedans with greatly sloping C pillars. So a wide brake light spanning the length of the rear window, perhaps?

There is actually more space in the back seats of the 1-series than the 6-series.
Thats why they came up with the LWB GC.....

I'd rather get this than F10, because in a couple of years everyone and their mom is gonna have an F10. This Grand Coupaye! (lol) will be rare.
I also bet the GC will be more expensive than a damn 7 series.
