There is so much I like about it... I like the interior two tone. Did you see the steering wheel, side view mirrors, and it has Bang and Olufsen sound. I can't wait to check it out!

Interior is above and beyond - just what I expected from the new 6er. The exterior design has only one "flaw", which is not exactly a flaw - just something I personally don't care for. That's the front bumper. It makes the front overhang appear elongated - at least, more so than the bumper of the Gran Coupe Concept did. I guess they had to modify it to meet the safety standards etc etc, but I would definitely like to see a different front bumper on this thing. That said, compared to, say, stock pre-lci E60 bumper, this is a work of art, so

When you look at it from the side, it is actually really well-proportioned:

and this angle also looks great:

But looking at it from this angle:

makes the front appear just a little off to me. And I think it is due to the way the front bumper is shaped, specifically that huge almost blank expanse of plastic between the outer edges of air-inlets and the wheel arches.

I agree with V ... the side view profile is perfectly proportioned and the interior is absolutely stunning! But, yes, the front is the weakest element (not too bad but something is just a bit off).

Now I can't wait to see the Gran Coupe.

Is that a B&O speaker hidden in the window switch assembly on the door panel? Cool! Is that B&O speaker on the dash a pop-up or is it permanently elevated like that? It just looks odd that way.

Yep, it is B&O and I wish I knew what the heck that elevated speaker looking thing was and how it operated. Honestly, this looks like the freaking future! Edit*** BTW, that wood matched PERFECTLY. I like that it isnt a big peive of melted platic on top of a thin peice of sliced wood. Or, at least it doesnt look like it is...
