And hk standard has a lot of stuff standard as well. Good deal. Couple comments:

1) Both GC included, Full LED options, surroundview, comfort access (640i soft close door needs option), glass roof, BMW Professional Audio with 7" mon standard. BTW, both comes with 19" wheels. 650i with 4-zone AC, 640i 2-zone.

2) Options: Adaptive Drive, Comfort Seats, Ceramic controls, HUD, IAS, Navigation Pro. Not a whole lot. New colors looks stunning.

However, too many people. Did not get a chance to see the rear seats and trunk space which I wanted to see. But my sales person promised to let me see a bit later

Oh boy. The car was nice but the launch was packed! BMW could have learnt from Audi in this case as they should have picked a more comfortable venue! Not to mention, it was pouring, and outdoor (in a tent), and the tent itself was leaking everywhere!

It is a very good deal indeed. The 640i coupe is the same price of the 650i GC.

Have already fiddle with the 6GC in Ma Tau Wei. Just like the CLS, is a pain to get into the rear seats.

The color is hideous though, frozen color on such an elegant car, they should at least have it in matt wheels and a dark interior. What is BMW thinking? They trying to get those driving Altezza in MK to change into those?

I take it you like the F10 rear seats way better than the 6GC? How about trunk space of the 6GC? Maybe can save me a trip (and time) to check it out....

rear room can't beat the 5 of course, trunk space i didn't really take a good look but i'll say is about as large as the 5 and it's definitely bigger the the E93

Take a look for yourself, you have to go see it.

Just went and spent 30 mins with the car. I love it!

Rear space is better than I thought. Given the fact that mostly, I will be driving and carrying only my 2 daughters, rear seat rooms are more than enough. Trunk not too shaby either. And through-loading is standard so I bet I can still carry 2 bikes+luggages.

So may be saying bye to my beloved F10 soon.

F10 is a great car. But unfortunately, it is everywhere in Hong Kong now

A pity you're going so soon, but a new car means more stuff to play..
Yes they are everywhere now, good thing I still haven't bumped into a twin yet (knock wood)
Thought about individual color? Since you can afford it

I think the brembo and MS8 can transfer to the 6GC. Are you going to get the 650i?

I will very likely ditch the Brembo but keep the MS8. Any takers?

Yes. Going to get the 650i. Wait is a bit longer (start of production around July for 650i) But it is for the new engine

The hardest thing to chose buying a 6GC is probably the color. All the nice colors are Individual colors which costs a boat load of money (including tax looking at around HKD100K). All the rest of the colors make the 6GC look ordinary Gravitating towards the Ruby black at the moment but let's see how much that cost first

And way less choice in interior as well. Which kind of sucks. Again, the nicer ones are all Individuals..... Rather spend more money on options that actually enhances handling and/or are useful Maybe will just stick with Ivory White interior, which is very similar to oyster black.....

What's the difference between the old 5.0T on the 550i?

Maybe it's a good time to order the M sport Kit from WK now, so it will ready to install once you get the car.

The 650i Gran Coupe has the new N63Tu which gives 450hp and 650Nm of torque! Drinks 10-15% less gas than regular N63 in the process 0-100Km in 4.6sec.

And they are 4.4T, not 5.0T

I saw the pictures...if I were to get one, I think I'll go for individual color. The 6GC will be a popular car in HK and if you are worried about being like the rest, then better get Individual color.

I'd go for one of the frozen colors for exterior and then opal white with black piano trims.

I hope 6GC won't be everywhere. Reason being that most people will have gone for a Panamera in HK for that kind of money. People still think Panamera has a higher status than any BMWs

But Ruby Black, Cinnamon Brown/Black, Aluminium interior it is

Besides, the Frozen colors adds another $60K pre-tax, Opal White Interior is another $50K pre-tax. Not to mention all these will delay the production into september as July production is not ready for full Individual options productions yet..... We all know BMW factories shutdown in Aug for retooling......

And my sales told me most of her orders so far were looking for Frozen Bronze. So..... Guess not!

Frozen bronze? wth.. my sales also told me somebody got my color f10 but now I think he is just saying that to piss me off. I have only seen 3 on the road, all e90s

Still not many CLS on the road, if i get a performance car in that category, i would get CLS63 over any of the bmws just because it gets 5.5TT when the CLS500 gets 4.7TT, but M5/6 gets same 4.4TT no matter 550 or M.
So getting the GC550 is a very optimal choice in my book, good timing too, first body outside M5 to get same engine, and you get 1/3-1/2 the extra tune as well. Really good idea

How much just for individual paint, no interior?
Is ruby black alot different from the other blacks, can you tell the diff?
I saw a f10 with the brown/alu.. quite sharp

Frozen paint from BMW is anything but cheap. At 115% tax, will get to about HKD80K at least for paint.........

Wow that's expensive. Anyway, I'm sure with your MS8 your 6 GC will stand out...
