I would also like to add that nine out of ten customers for the BMW 5er Gran Turismo are new to the BMW brand. Which was one of the vehicles intentions - To introduce a new type of customer to BMW.

My wife has a 530d GT and she loves it and having driven the same quantities of BMW's I have driven she finds the driving position the most perfect solution for her. Her friends love the cars accessibility , flexibility and exclusivity and my kids love it too.

I am surprised that the car has not done as well in the US. Especially when it combines the attributes of a wagon in a sleeker more exclusive concept.
The people @ bimmerpost seem to love their GT's.
But they had to do something, the Premium wagon market was collapsing and still continues to do so in favour of SUV's.
