Exactly my thoughts...what part of it justifies it being called a coupe. It sure is grand though. Grand bloat.

I really love the current gen 6 series, not feeling this. It may look better in person.

Terrible wheels and bad choice of color for this car (it just doesn't show the price of the car appropriately). I also think this is the base 6 gran coupe; the more expensive versions will look much better; either way this is a beautiful car.

I was a big fan of the grand coupe concept but these pictures make the car fall completely flat. Very unflattering...

I think it looks good, most of you guys will change your mind once you see it up close, just like all BMW for some reason picture don't do justice.
Plus I think it's the color that kinda hides the appearance For this car it will look a lot better in diff colors.

These cars are all a joke. I guess I would settle for the s2000 but none of them are worthy to spend a minute in my garage.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I think its the door handles, because the concept had Aston Martinish handles. I know it seems like a small thing but it does make the car a lot sleeker.

I have to say, in these pics and in this color, I wish they would have made it pillarless between the front seats and back seats. That would have been stunning.

Mineral gray and dark graphite and darker colors would better suit this car... Not feeling the grandness but this must be a tester of some sorts... Would love if
Tanzanite blue wasn't an individual color but then everyone would have it... Also thought the GC had the tailored led daytime running lights?

It's stunning! I kind of wish the F30 shared more of this DNA.

I am sure BMW marketing have done their homework, but I wish someone could explain to me why they are making it. I mean it can only eat into 5-series or 7-series sales. It competes so directly with both cars that I can't see overall BMW sales expanding.

Be interesting to know what pricing will be. I think they must have forgotten we're in a recession.

Looks very average to me, just another BMW. The color and wheels definitely don't help and M-Sport package is greatly needed.

This is officially not a "4-door coupe".

Nothing about it says coupe. It just looks like a sedan.
