Got to pick up the gran coupe the other day and I love it. Everyone is in awe with the fronzen bronze, I really like the interior but it's not every ones taste. I showed it to my parents this morning and they didn't care for the interior much. After driving this I feel like I got ripped off with all the range rovers I have had over the years. The electronics in the bmw are on another level.

Here are some pics, still need to get the car tinted

Is the insert on the steering wheel leather?

The white wood is embedded into the steering wheel with the leather wrapped around it. You can't feel the wood while driving unless you really try.

Tim

They are vossen cv4 wheels. I tried to find wheels that the average person would think are stock, I just didn't really like the individual wheels that came with the car.

So, what is going to be the routine for keeping it clean?

I have to admit that, at first, I wasn't quite certain about the interior; but it really is good looking! Great choice!

Thanks for all the kind words.

So, what is going to be the routine for keeping it clean?

I need to figure that out as I go, might just need to do a mobile detail a couple times a month. I am not sure if I am worrying too much about it, or if I am not worried enough. I will know in a couple months though.

Yeah people have mixed feelings about it, but usually warm up to it after a few minutes. It is pretty much UT longhorn colors, so a lot of random people here are loving it.

As much as I love the car and the colors, I am not loving the attention. I knew it would get attention, but didn't realize it was going to be this much. People always looking back when they pass, people taking pictures of it when it's parked, etc...I always got black on black cars because they never stuck out. I wanted something different this time around, but I might have went a little too extreme. It's going to take me a bit to get used to the attention the car brings.

Just getting caught up on the board, so I missed your initial post. That said, CONGRATS! Love the Bronze... really stunning.

Hi ,

I'm a newbie here ; also a newbie to BMW. I've been driving the Mercedes 500 series since 2002 and have really liked them.

I just ordered a BMW 650xi Grand Coupe as my E550 4matic lease comes due in march. I'm getting it in Black with the cinnamon brown nappa;cold weather;driver assistance;lux seating;premium sound;adaptive drive;headsup;active cruise & full LED.

I test drove a 640 coupe because that was the closest thing my dealer had so I don't know exactly what to expect so I was glad to find this site and others who have experience with this car. I'd love to hear all about your until I get mine.

Best regards,

Tom

Cheers!

Great looking car! Congrats! Is the steering wheel heated?

no its not, because of the wood inlay it can't be heated.

I don't really know because I wasn't in any great hurry. My Mercedes lease doesn't expire until March. The Sales person told me the car was in production on Dec 14.if that means anything.

If it comes in early , hopefully they'll do something for me.

Regards,

Tom

If the car was in production on the 14th it should arrive at the end of this month or first week of Feb. Exciting!

That's a lot sooner than I expected! Now I'm really excited. I hope it drives well in the snow!

I'm curious why they couldn't heat the wheel despite the wood inlay. Our Denali's steering wheel is heated and has a wood inlay. The wheel doesn't heat as well as my 6er's, but it does take the chill off of the cold leather on a cold morning. I don't think many people would consider it a deal breaker, but for >$100k you'd think they could work something out...

Yeah, I found it odd that I couldn't order the individual wheel heated. It was the one option that I really couldn't decide on until the last day. But living in Texas, I decided I might as well take the risk.

Beautiful, I have only seen the individual on the website, and it's a composite, your car is literally stunning! Love the colors, is the roof anthracite in that color combo?

Stunning. We almost went Amaro/Opal but chickened out and went Black/Amaro. Would be interested to know in 6 months, 1 year how the white is holding up to dirt. That was what we were afraid of.

So now that you have the car for some time, tell us about the light interior. I have Venetian Beige in 528 and its not terribly bad to keep it clean. Stitches picked up dirt at some places, which is hard to clean though. No kids allowed in the car...maybe that's the reason. How are you keeping it clean?

I have been traveling a lot so I still only have about 400 miles on the car. So far the interior and exterior are still perfect but that really doesn't mean much yet.
