An imperial gallon is about 1.2 U.S. gallons so you need to convert it.

36 mpg (imp) works out to be about 30 mpg (U.S.)

30 mpg is very much in line with what the 640i coupe gets. So the good news is true.

Do they have the launch date on it. I have an order date on a 7 series. Ill make that my next car once they work out the bugs for at least two years.

I wouldn't worry about bugs. The 6GC is an F10 variant. There's nothing in that car that hasn't already been tested for a couple of years in the F10.

I believe 640i GC will priced less than its 2 doors counterparts. Most definitely less than 740i.

More smoke and mirrors, and a generous dose of deception, using imperial gallons as the measure of gas mileage. Another piece of crap interior. Wood has been and is the measure of luxury car interiors not brushed aluminum. How about giving the consumer a little more bang for the buck -- a stinking V-8 with twin turbos ? This is a system that BMW hasn't been able to make work for years. I wish anyone who buys it good luck. BMW is notorious for not honoring warranty claims through their stealerships, just take a look at the websites. This dog won't hunt.

MMMmmmm, love it. Has hints of Aston Martin in the front and 3/4 side views... any hope of a hydraulic steering option?? I'd be happy to give up 3 mpg and pay a bit more.

It may just be the pictures but I am not impressed. At least not by the exterior. I think it looks too similar to the profile of the new 2011-2012 5 series. It's not very distinct in its appearance in comparison to how the Mercedes CLS is very different in design and purpose to the rest of the Benz line up. The interior looks hot but other than that, I'm thoroughly disappointed, at least until i get to see it in person.

FYI: That's White Ash Grain Wood Trim in the photo's. Part of BMW's Individual Trim options. Absolutely stunning and a 1/3 of the cost of an Aston Martin or Bentley.

I sat in this exact car at the NJ VDC this weekend. The interior will not be for everyyone but the headliner is very lux, the interior smelled like a new baseball glove and the quality of the seat leather, evn the perforated surfaces, was very high end. Very nice.

How is the rear leg room compared with 5 series?

Adequate for me but I'm a 30 inch inseam guy! I would say it's comparable to a 5er.

Its an option but there are also wood options on the BYO site.
