    BMW 6-Series Coupe Sighting

    Today I saw near Munich 3(!) BMW 6-Series Coupes without any camouflage driving ahead of me.
    What should I say: the rear of the 6-Series is a catastrophy, it looks very close to the 7-Series. But from the front and from the side, the 6-Series looks very nice.
    I've been shocked to see how long the 6-Series is, it looks at least as long as the Mercedes CL class. Pretty disturbing for a sports car.
    The rear is really ugly, actually the only thing which really is not looking good.

    i've been to bavaria last weekend (including a visit to legoland with my daughter ) and spotted three 6 coupés driving around near the dingolfing BMW plant. the car is really nice looking from some angles in reality. as RC said, the boot is as ugly as the 7's -- but the car is looking slim, very stretched and somehow modern -- like an U.F.O. on wheels

    actually i liked it.

    Ha ha you see!!!
    I told you man, I told you!!!
    I'm looking forward to see it too actually.
    With the V10, should be very sweet!
    I'm in Houston now (will call you soon Ron) and just saw the biggest truck ever!!! The Ford F250, so so long! God bless Texas!

    Fanch.

    I hope this ufo car fails miserably...... maybe then they will learn that ugly cars don't sell

    I personally don't like the new 6-series from every angle. The back is horrible, right, but IMO also the front looks ugly. Viewed from the side it could look nice, if there wasn't that terrible boot lid.
    The only good thing of the car of such a big size is the weight. With a length, width and height of 4820mm, 1855mm and 1370 mm, a weight of 1600 kg is really impressive.

    I was sitting in traffic at a light recently and saw a new 7 series ahead of me in the adjacent lane. I asked my wife what she thought of the trunk on the BMW (she is not a car person and primarily identifies and differentiates cars by color only). She looked at the BMW a ling time without comment.

    I said "Well?"

    "I'm still thinking." she said.

    Finally "You know, it's like when there is a problem in printing a book". (she knows a little about publishing). "The first half can be one book and somehow, partway through, it switches to some other completely different book with a different subject, title and everything. The production people are supposed to be doing quality checks but this one has somehow slipped by. They are merrily printing and binding books, oblivious to the problem. The books are being stacked on the shelves and some are even shipped to customers."

    "That's what this trunk is like" she continues, "Someone has messed up and put on a trunk from some completely different car and it hasn't been caught yet."

    Maybe BMW management can only see the Front of the cars when they come off the assembly line.
