Not even remotely. Multiple threads on how BMW gave up on classic BMW lines and cues to be more like Lexus or something. Check out the threads on the 6 forums.

I think the entire 8GC is executed poorly. Don't like it at all. Coupe looks better

Still cannot get excited about this, don't think I ever will, immediate issues are

- Its not a 110k car
- Interiors nothing special for me, follows the family concept, you buy the high end 8 and get the interior of a 1
- Pull out thigh support - really !!
- Wheels too small
- Fussy design

I shall keep my m6 gc for now, there used to be a niche case to go for the m6 over the m5, I think it no longer exists, indeed the M5 in my view looks the better proposition, thats probably the one I shall buy when my lease is up

The couple exterior design is striking. More so when seeing on the road no matter the colour. The side profile looks gorgeous, sporty and expensive.
