This is the first thing that would be gone if I got this from this dealership. Looks really tacky.

I immediately noticed the same thing. Deal killer right there, unless they removed that without leaving any scars.

The 6er GC was one of the most stunning cars in the line-up, particularly in M trim. I'm not sure this lives up as a successor but I'd need to see it in the flesh.

I haven't seen this in the flesh but when I saw the coupe version, pictures really don't do this car justice.

Was just about to say that Herb needs to settle down. BMW's badging is bad enough, we don't need this jabroni slapping his branding on +$100K vehicles, let alone any vehicles.

They should have kept the aggressive features of the concept, this looks dull and boring

While the 6GC still holds a special place in my heart, this is still a good looking GC nonetheless. The black on red example above looks really good, hopefully it will drive well.

I like it, looks good. My question is regarding the length. Is it battleship long like the 6 GC? And does it have better packaging? That car was huge outside, tiny inside.

Re Lexus rear and, don't see that at all, and I owned one. I do see a bit of Supra though. But far better than the 3er.

I agree. The 6 was and still is an icon in terms of styling.
This one doesn’t hold a candle to 6....
Not to mention the 6 was waay cheaper.

The whole move to 8 nomenclature was just a political move to justify the highe price. But it doesn’t work.

I had high expectations for the GC as well and is just ok.

I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but having just seen a non-M Sport 840 coupe, the 8-Series looks so much sleeker and more upscale in non-M Sport guise. Looks like a Jag or Aston without the M Sport, and actually looks more like the 8-Series concept. It's a shame you can't get the 850 without it, a non-M Sport 850GC would look amazing and be a dream daily driver.

I hadn't noticed the OEM badging in the rear was below the tail lamp housings until the dealer added their advertising.

I'm against the advertising but It can be removed easily. I'd recommend they put it near the rear plate in the future. That location is just horrid.
