gran coupe arrived

posted this in the other forum, but figured I might as well post it here too.



Got to pick up the gran coupe the other day and I love it. Everyone is in awe with the fronzen bronze, I really like the interior but it's not every ones taste. I showed it to my parents this morning and they didn't care for the interior much. After driving this I feel like I got ripped off with all the range rovers I have had over the years. The electronics in the bmw are on another level.

Here are some pics, still need to get the car tinted

Gorgeous combo! Bet the interior would look even more amazing at night time with the ambient lighting and B&O illumination. Please post pics soon.

They are the vossen cv4 wheels. I tried to find something that didn't look too aftermarket, I just really didn't like the individual wheels it came with.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

You may need to turn on or crank up the illumination in order to see the B&O speaker lights. It is not apparent in the pictures.

The ambient lighting is much more apparent in these pics than it is in mine with all black Nappa (with the lighting at its brightest setting). I guess it has to do with the way that the different leather colors reflect the lighting. All of the pics I've taken of mine do not show the orange lighting that well. In real life, the lighting is more apparent than the pics, but still not as obvious as djsaad's. Just an observation.

Beautiful car and congrats!!!
The interior is OK.
If I would have gone the two tone interior route like you, I would have made ALL the white bits, a lighter brown.

I had to break out the real camera to get a good shot of the B&O lights. Here are some better pictures.
