What's your thoughts? Anyone interested in buying one?
What surprised me was the size of the 3GT, compared to the 5-series touring, it is nearly as large. And I see the 5-series as a big car.

3-series 3GT: ... 4824 length, 1828 width, (2047 mirrors) 2920 wheelbase, 1465 front interior width.
5-series touring: 4907 length, 1860 width, (2094 mirrors) 2968 wheelbase, 1518 front interior width.

The 3GT was the car I was very tempted to wait for, I quite like the way it has turned out, but not disappointed I proceeded with a 5-series touring. Plus a decent 3GT spec' is going to be eye watering.
