5gt On The X-factor / Uk

The F07 / 5GT has started popping up on the television.

It featured in all 3 episodes of the BBC2 drama SHERLOCK [silver 530dSE]
And now a Black Sapphire 5GT is being used to ferry judges around on the UK-version of THE X FACTOR whenever they are in London!

As some who was very skeptical of the model when it was launched [looks, drive] until I actually saw one and drove it on an extended test drive;
and now a proud owner of one that I wouldn't trade for a saloon, I am not surprised people are coming around.

Granted the looks are an acquired taste: but it doesnt exactly go un-noticed for the right reasons when I park up.
My E60 (which I believe is a stunningly modern design and better looking than the bland F10) had got kind of dated.

Visibility GT


I'm new here in this Forum.
Live in Germany, near Trier which is the oldest city in Germany.

My 530d GT came 2 months ago with 8500km to me for a friendly price.

Last week I was for a short holiday in our capital Berlin for 5 days.
During this stay I saw several X5 and X6 but not a single GT!

After coming home, I drove to our neighbour village (both 500 inhabitants),
which is only 5 km away and I passed a black one and from the other direction a silver one came, and passed me.

It seems that the GT is not really a city car.............

Even in the BMW home country the GT is quite rare as you can see.
