It does not, at least not here in SoCal.

So yes, a 110K for a 6 cyl BMW Gran Coupe is asking more than what I think most buyers around HERE are willing to spend.

Oh, and if you actually read my previous post you would realize I was stating that you cannot compare a car that has been out for years (the R8) being unsold on lots to a brand new introduced car that is sitting on lots unsold.

Read all the posts Judah, no one is saying the 6GC is not a hot car. What they ARE saying is it is probably overpriced and the market could very well have a hard time bearing it at that price.

I would be more than willing to bet they will have to start incentivizing the
the GC soon if they want to move the number of units that BMW is used to moving in order to be on track for number one lux brand in the US this year.

Oh and yes I do know how to spell Kool-Aid. I spelled it correctly for how it is spelled here in the U.S.

I also know where the term came from. So please do your homework next time sir.....
First, you did not spell Kool Aid correctly as it is spelled in any market. It's spelled with a K yet you initially spelled it with a C, so you're just lying there,( check your previous post and my reply to said post as proof). You tell me to do my homework yet you don't know how to spell "K"ool aid.... Smh

Second I know exactly what you said in your previous post and part of my reply to that post was, "Currently, alot of high end new cars are sitting on the floor unsold due to a poor almost worldwide economy the fact that they've just been introduced to the market or have been here for 2+ years doesn't matter." However, since you keep stating that it does matter, tell me exactly why...
Go back and read my previous post you are having trouble comprehending this point.

This conversation is not about what others have wrote or are writing, it's between you and I and what you wrote. I replied to you. Also, don't put words in my mouth or my post. I never said or implied that anyone said the CG isn't a hot car. Besides, that's something subjective to the beholder and really has no merit in debate.

Alot of high end cars have incentives now. Hell, Ferrari introduced a 7 year unlimited mileage free maintenance plan. Do you think they did that out of the kindness of the heart ? Take a look around and you'll see NEW high end cars sitting in the showroom with 500, 700 or even 1000+ miles on them. Usually the sales manager puts the miles on them. This allows the dealership to lower the price,(sometimes drastically) without calling the car a demo or the manufacturer calling the price reduction an incentive. You're so stuck on alleging that the 6 is not selling or not going to sell or slow selling because it's overpriced that you can't see what's going on around you.
Truth be told, its only over priced to those who can't afford it.

The US is made up of way more than just SoCal. Just because a group in SoCal feel a certain way doesn't mean the rest of the US does. You need to step out of your area and see what else is going on in America. By the way, I know you won't answer this two part question but what exactly makes Porsche more "cachet" than BMW ? and What is it that makes you and your alleged "SoCal" peeps think that a 6 cylinder Porsche can cost $100k and not a 6 cylinder BMW ??
