Can you make a picture comparison between this and the 5 series? I know it looks different but, I want to see side by side the differences.

I think something got lost between the prototype and production. It's not really working for me. I am not drinking any more kool-aid til it looks better.

I dunno. I'm in 2 minds about this car. It looks very sedan-like and yes then you do start wondering what's different from this and a 5 series, but it is very well proportioned and you can't really fault it. The rear end really does look sleek too.

I think on the road it will look a lot better. Just like the 6 series it looks ok in pics but on the road it does stand out.

My thoughts..
It's amazing to see how 'ugly' the front looks without the full-LED headlights, imho it's a must have in this 6 series :/ (I know it's a test car, but still..)

This particular 6 Series Gran Coupe looks a little tubby. Definitely looks more aggressive in the M-sport package. BTW, what is the hole in the front wheel fender? It looks like someone has been at work with a hole-puncher.

My ardor for the Gran Coupaaaaay is already beginning to cool. The standard version doesn't look anywhere near as nice as the M Sport version. Wonder when the M6 Gran Coupe will break cover?

Side View camera lens - also this must be a base 650GC, as it does not have fog lights - obviously a pre-production model.... Production models will look better - save for the standard 18inch rims
