2013 650xi Gran Coupe ORDERED!
 
2 Attachment(s)
Well, my GC order has been placed, as follows:

2013 BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe
Titanium Silver Metallic
(Ind) Canyon Brown Full Merino Leather
- Anthracite Headliner
- Individual Door Sill Finishers
Fine Line Oak Wood Trim
Cold Weather Package
Driver Assistance Package
Luxury Seating Package
Premium Sound Package
- Bang & Olufsen Sound System
Adaptive Drive
Ceramic Controls
Full LED Lights
Automatic High Beams
BMW Apps
Shadowline Trim [special order]

The only remaining question is the issue of the headliner. According to the dealership, if you order Canyon Brown leather as an ala carte option on a non-MSport car, you get the standard Anthracite (instead of Light Gray) Headliner. They are currently checking to see if it's possible to special order the Anthracite Alcantara Headliner and, if so, what the price tag would be for it. I'm not sure how important it is to me, as long as the headliner is black, but I'll wait to make the final call when I hear the price tag.

I love my '12 Coupe. 85-90% of the time it's all that I need and more, but the other 10% of the time, I really miss the ability to have rear seat passengers. Or, at least, rear seat passengers with legs. I considered getting something else in addition (SUV or a 7-Series), as I've done in the past when I owned 6er Coupes, but I think I'd rather just have one vehicle that meets all of my needs. So, here's hoping the GC is it!

Here's a picture or two from BMW's BYO site. Just imagine it with Shadowline Trim and 35% tint.

Congrats! I just placed a similar order today as well. Got the frozen bronze with canyon brown.

Did you end up opting for the Shadowline or sticking with the chrome surrounds?

djsaad1 09-11-2012 12:47 PM

I ended up sticking with the chrome, from the pictures it seems like the chrome works well with the frozen color.

Can't wait to see pictures. It's going to be stunning, I'm sure.

I've had so many Silver-on-Black BMWs that I feel all walk-on-the-wild-side for getting a dark brown interior. Wish my nerves would have been able to handle something like Frozen Bronze. Ha.

Did they give you a build date?

xDrive McGee 09-11-2012 12:54 PM

I think BMW really hit it out of the park with Canyon Brown - or Cohiba brown. All we need now is diamond quilted!

djsaad1 09-11-2012 12:54 PM

This is actually my first car that isn't either black on black or black on some type of tan.

If I were buying the car I would have given the color more thought, but on a 3 year lease that I will probably get out of around the 2 or 2.5 year mark, I wasn't worried about it.

No build date, he is shopping other dealers right now to get me a slot. He is guessing right now that he could get me a build in week 40 which would put me in early to mid November.

Same exact situation here.

djsaad1 09-11-2012 12:58 PM

Lol, they are probably going to be fighting over the same slots.

Haha. At least we're in different regions (which I think matters). Did they give you any indication if the Individual paint would add to the build timeline?

No they didn't, I hope it doesn't take any longer.

They are buying out the range rover lease now instead of when the car comes in because they are guessing the value will go down a lot when the new range rover comes out next month. For the moment I am actually getting money back on the buyout.

In the meanwhile I will be driving a cts coupe, and I really hate driving that car. You can't see your blind spots at all.

The new Range Rover looks amazing! Wish I could justify one of those in addition to the GC.

The CTS Coupe looks great on the road, too, but I've never been in one. The blind spot thing certainly doesn't surprise me, though.

I don't know if this is new or not, but when building a 650 on the bmwusa site, shadowline exterior trim now shows up as standard on the bmw individual composition package.

Yes, but only if you get the full Individual package. Since I'm just getting the Canyon Brown leather only, none of the exterior Individual items (Shadowline Trim, special 19" and 20" wheels, etc.) apply.

Great combo. I always liked both Canyon and Cohiba brown. Can't wait to see the pictures when the car arrives. :thumbup:

Thanks. I'm excited. (And I have to make a decision about the wood today!)

Are Canyon and Cohiba the same color, just different names?

xDrive McGee 09-12-2012 05:10 AM

BMW seems to be using the names interchangeably and I think they are indeed the same. I ordered the M6 with Canyon, but Cohiba shows up when searching for my car by VIN. A quick Google search doesn't show any real difference that can't be attributed to varying lighting, but I can't say for sure.

Ah, got it. Maybe Cohiba is the other-side-of-the-pond name or something. I noticed on the BMW Individual iPad app, only Cohiba is listed.

Whatever it's called, I really like...

What wood options are you thinking about? I went with fine lined oak, but I am wondering if I should switch to piano black.

My gut instinct was to stick with Gray Poplar, like I have now. It has a lot of grays and warmer brownish tones, so I personally think it would look great with the dark brown leather. Everyone else, though, seems to think Fine Line Oak would look better. So, I'm torn.

I'm really not a fan of the Individual wood options, personally. While I think Piano Black is really good looking, I think it would be an OCD nightmare (dust, fingerprints, scratches, etc.).

djsaad1 09-12-2012 05:26 AM

I really like the shine in the piano black, but don't think it will look great with it right up against the brown. I test drove a car with fine lined oak and it's nice, but a little dull.

That's my issue with the Fine Line Oak, too... just a bit too conservative/dull. Since the Canyon Brown interior still has a lot of black leather, too, I think the Piano Black would actually look really great. I just know that I would obsess about every little scratch.

djsaad1 09-12-2012 06:35 AM

They just told me they were able to get a week 39 slot but they are not able to submit the individual options to it yet. They put in a call to the factory about it, but hopefully I will get the week 39 production slot.

XZLR8 09-12-2012 07:37 AM

I just received a few confirmations on my order.

First, Shadowline Trim can be special ordered for $350, which I am definitely doing. I cannot special order the Anthracite Alcantara Headliner, though. The Individual Canyon Brown leather (on non-MSport cars) comes with the Anthracite Headliner, which will be fine.

XZLR8 09-12-2012 07:39 AM

Also, the Canyon Brown interior moved the production back to week 44, so the best estimate is for a late November to mid December delivery.
