Can anyone tell me why BMW won't let me configure "shadowline exterior" if I want the 19 inch, all season tires? Frustrating!

Exactly the same reason they removed M Sport brakes from the Performance package on F3x order with all season tires - in Canada anyways.

Probably because A/S tires aren't "sporty enough"

As the owner of a M6 GC, the gran coupe is the absolute ultimate chassis for this high performance Sports car.

The coupe and convertible are an after thought.

Still debating whether to get the new M8 Gran Coupe or go all out on the next gen 911 turbo S

I agree dude. The GC is unbelievable. I ended up finding a killer X5M, kids are still babies, but the next one will be a GC.

Yeah but totally different feel. I agree looks much better but I'm still torn between these two.

If you don't need the extra utility, I can tell you the TTS will be in an entirely different league.

The fact that BMW chooses to call a 4-door sedan a "grand coupe" is a marketing strategy to dilute the shame of the poor married bloke who is forced to buy one.
