Nail on the head! Quattroporte as well. Not difficult to understand at all. Will be interesting to see how it stacks up as a credible and less expensive alternative to the big boys. One thing we're sure is that the 'drive' will be right.

IMO they are competitive now ... as I understand it they've out sold both German rivals... maybe merc and audi should take a page out of the "older" BMW hand book...the focus should be on quality not quantity....

If you want the best mid size four door sedan, it was easy.... buy a bmw 5er...
Now itís by a 5 or a 6... Why? Beside dilution of the brand?

Sadly... it looks like that day too is close...

Then put in those ceramic brakes we've been hearing so much about, and the DCT. Then, and this is a must no matter what, drop a few hundred pounds.
Sounds like the perfect idea to me.. kinda wanted it on the current m5..

I think the M6 gran coupe is a great idea, there is a big demand for such a segment and BMW wud definetily nail it. SO I ACTUALLY CANT WAIT FOR IT!!!
