It's outstanding that BMW has customer engagement events like this.... for both client advisors and other staff and also for customers like the Ultimate Driver Experience nAs a previous winner of one of these events .. I encourage others to participate!

I'm also excited about the 8er as a flagship for the marque.

So are there dimensions for this car yet? Available to the buying public? Would it be safe to say it's approximately the same size as a 6 series? If so, what's the point?

The 8 Series Concept was 5cm / 2in shorter than the outgoing 6 Series Coupé.
