Hey all,

Just an intro here... I just finalized the purchase of a branch new 650i GC and according to the salesman at the dealer they have only brought 2 previous cars (of which 1 is unsold) and mine is batch 2 which is only 6 cars(with 3 still for sale)

I had little or no choice other than colors as over here you basically take what the dealer has on the lot and any special order would be extremely expensive.

I took the higher spec model (compared to an almost basic spec model) which has the following options:

2013 BMW 650i Gran Coupe
Space Grey Metallic
Cinnamon Brown leather (Dakota - Believe it or not over here Nappa is not standard on 650i GC and only available as special order)
Leather finish dashboard with contrasting stitching
- Anthracite Headliner
-M sport Kit with 20 inch wheels
Fine Line Oak Wood Trim
Driver Assistance Package (however without the Lane Departureand and blindspot detection...sigh!!)
Luxury Seating Package (non ventilated)
Premium Sound Package
Adaptive Drive
Full LED Lights
Automatic High Beams
BMW Apps
Shadowline Trim [standard for M kit]


I wanted to get the additional options in the Driver Assistance package even at the sacrifice of the M sports kit but that would've meant a US$ 15-17K price difference which is CRAZY!... I might do some sort of coding/retrofit later...

Anyway ill be posting some pics if i can get it registered and out of the dealer by end of tomorrow (Thursday is last day of the week here with a FRI/SAT weekend)

I am also considering getting the wheels painted to match the exhaust tips and a dark window tint as well...

Anyway looking forward to enjoying the car with the rest of the gran coupe group on here...:D:D


Regards..

Looking forward to seeing pictures of your car and regarding the Dakota leather on the 650i here in Qatar it's the same if you want Nappa you need to pay more which is weird , why bother with leather dash with dakota?

Also I do agree that special orders are very expensive here which made my 640i more expensive than any 650i they have and I only have an Individual exterior+nappa leather and AC schnitzer kit. :dunno:

Wow! beautiful car.. but GCC pricing makes it very expensive to have the car just the way we wanted... the lane departure, blindspot and full nappa only few thousand dollars extra.. but over here its an arm and a leg...


btw beatiful colour and kit you have..

The F06 is a beautiful car and when I was in Dubai last week I did not see a single one there (even in JBR ;))
Well maybe except the one our customer brought from Saudi Arabia to Dubai to get the 6NR ConnectedDrive retrofit done by us :thumbup:

Congrats on your new bimmer!
