Talk me out of it

Out looking for my next car. Have a 528i xDrive. Looked at a 435 GC, Looked at a 535, test drove a 640i xDrive Gran Coupe Msport Edition with Cold Package and fell in love. Nicest flipping car I have ever driven.

Tell me it's a horribly unreliable, underpowered POS. I won't believe you, but tell me anyway.

Black sapphire on black leather.

It's haunting my dreams and I haven't slept yet...

Test drove a 640i GC in 2012 and talked myself out of it...went with a more practical solution and got the 550i [yeah I know some will say that's practical]. Anyway flash forward to 2014 and just upgraded into a 650ix GC....so far I can say sorry they are worth all the accolades you've heard.

Saw the 4 series GC today at an Auto show and must say I was impressed and if I didn't go into the 650 GC that car with a little more hp and maybe an M version would be something to consider.

Easy, my POS 2013 650i GC is getting Drivetrain Malfunction error, and they never fix it. BMW NA is offering me $1000 to live with this problem and take it in whenever error goes off.

Check the thread below to see how many 6er owners are getting it, and google "drivetrain malfunction bmw" to see how many other people are getting it.

Sorry, I have only the 2 iPhone pics that I took when I took my test drive. She's pretty dirty in those pics, I pick her up on Wednesday, and it's supposed to be raining pretty good (not a bad thing, for my family, rain and new toys represents good luck).

How do you not keep it in Sport mode all the time, that dash cluster looks so sweet...

LOL congrats, excellent pick up. I love how only one day later came the comment "I did it"

Enjoy in good health!

Easily the nicest car I've ever driven. Been miserable and raining ever since I got her (which, historically, is actually a good luck omen in my family) hence no new picture. Got black M-perf grilles installed this morning.

Could not be a happier camper...

Congrats! But the front license plate ruins the front look of the car.

Please post some close-ups of the grille and front end when time an weather permits. My car is the same color as yours and I ordered the M Performance grille also. I'm trying to decide if I want to have the auto body shop install it while they are repairing the curb rash on my front bumper, but car is back in the States and I haven't been able to see a close-up of what I ordered and can't decide if I want it installed.

Nice ride. True, the F10 is more practical and less expensive, but it doesn't turn heads like the F06. Congrats...
