435i Gran Coupe in showroom

My local BMW dealership doesn't have the 4 GC yet, so I figured to take a ride to Morristown. This place is about 3 - 4 times the size of the one by me. Tons of 2-door 4ers and when I walked into the showroom, there she was...

The pics aren't great (taken with an iPhone), but I wanted to share. The lighting doesn't do this car justice; it's looks so much better in person. I prefer the contrast of the silver door trim to the darker color (Luxury model), or the lighter colors (white, silver, etc) with the sporty black trim.

I'm 6ft and found getting in the back was fairly easy and comfortable. The headliner does barely graze the top of my head, but I'm looking to be a DRIVER, not a passenger...perhaps in the next year or so.

Enjoy...

Beautiful! Not to nitpick, but it's a 435i, not a 435xi - they don't make an xi w/ the bigger engine unfortunately.

I test drove this AW 435i GC M Sport Line fully loaded.
It's just a great car to be in...

Fortunately, not unfortunately. Otherwise, there would be no way to test drive a RWD car at any dealership in my area - they all pack their lots with xDrives exclusively these days.

i don't know...the GC isn't doing it for me. I haven't seen one in person yet so maybe that will change. Something about the flow/proportions are off to me.

This looks good. For the price, that is base M3. If they had a M4 GC i would jump on it.

Looks good... Does the white one have the LED headlights? Would those transfer to an F30 or is the shape different?

The White 4GC does have the LED headlights... They do look a bit different then the headlight fixtures for the F30...
