Is the 6GT not just the X6 (also an embarrassing example of a BMW)?

I just looked it up and you know... the 6GT almost looks good in an Audi A7 (amazing car) kind of way since the 6 looks longer than the 3/5... but... its still too tall and looks like an egg. Be gone!

Thank God. The GT version is hideous (except for the 6 series).

This is a bummer for me. We love our 340GT. With no touring coming over for the next gen 3, looks like BMW is forcing me to leave the brand as I'm not interested in a SUV.

4er GC was a much better looking car vs the F30 3er.

I agree, assuming you meant 4er GC.

Same hatchback concept as GT but so much better looking!

BMW will axe the 4er GC and replace it with the GT. they just did this very thing to the 6er.

next thing you know the 4er coupe and vert are gone and we have them listed as a 5er and add $5k to the price.

Thoughts on "Gran Coupe" to be the next to go? I did like the 650i GC, but with the 5 & 7 below and above in model range, usually offered in M-Sport, is there much reason for it?

Not sure the major features that a GC offered that you couldn't have with another model...

Finally. Now let's wait for the 6 GT. Awful cars. Two of the worst designs in the current lineup

I hope the Gran Coupe sticks around and evolves to something more like the Audi S5 sportback.

Really wish they would do a M4 GC with AWD


Surprised I don't really see a lot of GC driving around. It's all the low priced 3ers, probably all with killer leases!
