Thumbs up Rosenthal BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe Review

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I think many of us here know Rosenthal Automotive and their awesome car reviews. They just came out with one on the 640i GC. He left a little surprise too!

Quote:
The new 2013 6 series Gran Coupe is here! Steve takes us on a tour of BMW's new 4 door coupe- the 640i. This model is brand new for BMW and comes in two models, the 640i and the 650i. Steve explores the interior and exterior of the Gran Coupe and reviews how well the car feels to drive in person.

Angry please less car salesman... more like a buddy

I am sorry but i just cannot stand this guy...

... i just dont know why... i would love to love him... but i just dont...

it's driving me nuts... that i hate him. so i dare not watch this tube.


EDIT: I gave in!!!!... and watched the video...

and you know what... ??? I love the guy now LOL

he gave a personal shout out to BimmerPost !! so i apology for saying the above... i take it back.
Not because of the personal shout out... but because this video is really well made, just like any other video they made..

The initial reason why i didnt like him was due in part to a previous Bmw review he made, and back then
he didn't sound very convincing and came out a bit trying too hard, too much.

But this time around, for his review of this 6GC, the team work made it come across as much more pleasing to listen and watch.
This is probably one of the most desirable cars on the market, who wouldn't love it...
and we can see that he honestly love the car himself.

Congrats on this well made video Rosenthal.

The Music,The Lighting, The Editing

Great script- but everything else got in the way.
The music is intrusive- mixed up too high. And the music is so 80's. Even the host looks a little like Michael Douglas. Not a bad thing I guess but it smacks of trying too hard to be cool from another era. Message to the host- Gordon Gekko wants to see you in his office....NOW!
The lighting is overly dramatic- everything coming out of the shadows like a bunch of creatures in a horror flick. The editing with stop motion while the car is moving is so corny- so undergrad film-school.
I couldn't watch it longer than 3 minutes. This is a generation disconnect from a crew that's stranded in the past.

Didn't know the 640i takes off with such sonorous exhaust note!

My F10 535i with the same N55 engine doesn't do the same. Shame!

Nice review. He doesn't just love to pick up the negatives like some. Love the GC, can't wait to see 4 series version of it...

I like the review, it does have a bit of an 80's theme but that's not a bad thing. Although I'm 29, I still remember the luxury car commercials with the pyramid of wine glasses on the hood and the ball bearing following the panel gaps. A bit more calming than today's "HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY LOOK LOOK QUICK QUICK! okay it's over."

Love the vids this guy makes.. they're high quality, funny, and give the viewer exactly what they want to see -- just plain awesome!

Beats some schmuck walking around a vehicle talking to himself at a car show with his kid.. like so many vids on Youtube.

You will learn it is easy not to like what you don't know or understand.

Not thinking that way will set you free.

The review was great, and the shout out was super cool as well.

I honestly think this is the best looking BMW now. Been a huge fan and still is of the 7 series but 6GC is more stylish. Great job BMW for creating such spectacular looking car and providing needs of many people that need style and practicality. Awesome personal shout out by Rosenthal Automobile dude!

I really enjoy this guy's reviews. He's not obnoxious or intrusive like the other reviewers out there. Has a very similar style to motorweek.

Brake light

WTF?!?!?! On this they put the third brake light where it should be on a non-convertible car, but on the 6 coupe, they stick it on the trunk lid and in the case of the M6 they stick a silly fin ahead of it? WTF BMW?
