     Other than the tiny wheels it looks really good! 


    Re: 2012 BMW 6 Coupe

    Maybe it is due to the photographic angle but it looks way too long.

    Christian, it is almost 4.9m car.


    Re: 2012 BMW 6 Coupe

    The rear overhang is indeed too long for my liking, but it might be the angle, I never noticed it with the cabrio 6...


    Re: 2012 BMW 6 Coupe

    Previous model was much more singular and unique to my eye.

    A white 5 GT looks better ..

    From these pictures it doesn't look well proportioned. I hope it's the photographer's fault because I wanted to like this car.

    Re: 2012 BMW 6 Coupe

    It is longer than old one (4890 mm), but I think it looks on those photos even longer than it is due to photo angle and small rims. I like new 6er, except front could be better. But anyway its too big Coupe for me, I will be more interested for next gen. 3 Coupe (F32).

    Here is 6 series Coupe concept, which is basically the same car:

     

    And new 6er (with camouflage) next to old one:

     

     


    Re: 2012 BMW 6 Coupe

     I waited to see the car in real as I wanted to order either a 6series or 7series as a daily driver. Seeing that I ordered last night a new 7. The 6 is not emotional enough to me for having lack of space and comfort for the daily biz trips!

     "Meh." 

    Seems a bit dull, doesn't it? The lines seem inharmonious as if six designers were each given a section and some duct tape to assemble the parts with.

    You're just missing some of that Bangle surface excitement, thats all.  Smiley

    Congrats, 7 series is perfect choice for a long distance trips Smiley I haven't seen new 6 series in person, but old 6 series isn't very comfortable and spacious inside...

     Very good looking limousine!

    740 Diesel I presume?

     You can't go wrong with a 7 series, I don't think.

     You're probably right. I actually thought the last 5 Series was beautiful and the Z4 as well. Didn't like the Bangle Bustle but did very much like the lines of the last 6 Series.

    This one seems lumpy to me. But it may be better in person and it may grow on me.

    When I look at a 6 Series, I go "6 Series. 911. Which would I rather drive?"

    It's a no-brainer, isn't it?

    Re: 2012 BMW 6 Coupe

    IMO the 6 series has occupied a market niche by itself.

    More special and unique than the Mercedes E class coupe or CLK previously and the Audi A5 and on the other hand much more affordable than top luxury coupes like the CL  the Bentley Continental or the Maserati, but still with sufficient effect

    Porsche need something in that category with a perfect balance between luxury and sportiness.
