Your Old man is spot on. It was either one Panamera or one BMW 6GC if we were not going to get two 330d M Sports. The Panamera was off the list after a very quick drive due to the transmission. The 6GC was the one. Then we drove the F30 with the ZF 8AT. The 6GC then became history.: too big, too expensive and not such good value for money. F30's version of Joy won.
