Need to see it in person. Look how hideous everyone thought the GT was until they saw it. (well, maybe that's a bad example)

Looks way better than the F10 and I absolutely love the interior design. Can't wait to see this in person. I wonder if the U.S. models will have the I6 as well as the V8....

I think it's a home run - I like it a lot. Best BMW design for a while, and the interior looks great.

They are bringing out the 640 with the i6 and the twin-power turbo (~315hp) and the 650 with the monster TTV8. And if I recall it correctly, either can be had with an xDrive.

As I said before, this is BMW's attempt to get people to upgrade from a 5 to a 6! They did so successfully in the past between the 3 and 5. That's why a lot of us a driving E60s...
