  1. This is one of the most disgusting looking vehicles I have ever seen. Honestly, BMW should be ashamed.

    • The more I look at this atrocity, the more I am willing to wager that McGregor lands more punches on Mayweather than the number of these that BMW sells.

      Oh well, at least BMW fans can just hang onto that gorgeous 8er that is soon to be here.

        The car is now lower than its predecessor and offer a less differentiated interior concept, so what's the official selling point then ?

          Space, luxury, price.... also, not being a bell-end that drives SUV's needlessly in towns or urban environments.

            Maybe this was already discussed, but wasn't the whole recent rebranding of 3 coupe -> 4, 1 coupe ->2 etc meant to make all even numbered series be coupes only? So how does calling this thing a 6 fit in with that?

              No. Fake news. Granted, it was popular theory, but it was made up by the rags... BMW AG never said anything about that even/odd crap, at least when it actually happened. 12-15 years ago it was talked about, but that was when the line up was much simpler.

                It's actually a really nice 5er gt but an ugly 6er gt. Probably the reason for all the hysterics.

                  Good Lorde!
                  I like your posts - you have an interesting perspective on things. I reckon your summation is succinct and to the point. It doesn't matter whether BMW did or did not actually state the odd-even naming strategy's reasoning; the reality is that the precedent was set in the initial execution.

                  In my humble, layman's opinion, the product roll out was its own undoing - if I recall correctly, we got a 6er, a 4er thereafter and then a 2er coupé and all was good and sensible (read - a nice synonym for logical). Suddenly - not long after - BMW released the 2er Van and the whole thing turned on its ear. And now this. Can't blame the naysayers - it just is what it is: an insensible (read - a nice synonym for illogical) decision in the eyes of many observant, joe-public consumers and car fans alike.

                    If the marketing people say it is a coupe, it is a coupe, even when the car has 5 doors.

                      It is going to be weird if the 4er range comprises the coupe, cabrio and GT while the 6er only has the GT.

                      Don't give them even more suggestions. The last thing we want is a 6 GT convertible to fill in the niche market.

                        After all 6GT is heavier than the 7er and much, much heavier than the 5er

                          Exactly what I was thinking, I'd go so far as to say the front is ugly when compared to the G30.

                          Terrible from BMW!
