Side-view gives me Jaguar vibes. Which isn't good.
Price is also too high. These will sit a long while.

Does anyone else think that, based on the rear tailights and trunk design, two door coupe looks better than the four door GC?

Agreed.

Absolutely sinful.

Always has been, always will be.

My father refused a car once because of this.

There was actually a time when dealers drilled them into the trunk lid.

I want an 8GC, I believe that BMW has it right with this model. I have a 6GC which I love and not looking to change except for the 8GC. Well done BMW

If the middle back seat is useless. They should really have rear bucket seats ala Porsche Panamera.

I knew in one of the first posts someone else would remark on this. Literally if you buy a car that is 100k plus, do us a favor dealers, save us even from asking you to remove the dealer emblem. Its a courtesy

For me no matter what the car I am telling them to remove it

I like the look of the car.........it's definitely as good looking car but it doesn't look different enough from my 6GC or unique enough to make me want to get rid of it and buy one of these.

Totally right, 2 bucket rear seats was the way to go

That indentation where the rear tag goes looks funky. Strange design. Don't like it at all. Looks like part of the car is missing... what's with the Grimace

Meh, it's just boxier than the 6GC. The lines are not as sleek.

That works OK on the coupe......but this is a big sedan, it does not work as well with 4 doors.....as the lack of lines becomes more noticeable with the car being longer.

Curious to see it in real life....

That two tone red leather interior is hideous! As the past owner of a 6 GC I'm afraid to say I'm really not a fan. Let's see if it grows on me but looks like it's going to be very colour sensitive.

I like the rear lights but the roofline is too chunky and not as elegant as the 6GC. I think part of it has to do with the lame Hoffmeister Kink treatment they gave it. The C-pillar just looks super thick and not in a good way.

Noticed it too. Remove it or no sale. As a matter of fact, if I order a car , there had better be no trace of a logo on it ...

It looks super Panamera.. that kink. :

Perhaps the M8 will have the goods. There is no muscularity from the rear haunches. It's all ass and large non muscular thighs.
