Your dealer can look it up for you - or you can search on BMW VIN Check and type your VIN in (They are worded funny there but you can figure them out!)

I think it is somewhere in-between, looks like it will do light braking and you need the ACC to completely stop.

Leave the 19s with the Goodyear all seasons - they will do great in the Nov-March timeframe. Put the 20s on with summer tires (non - run flats) and you will be very happy with the car in the summer...

Well, I personally think you are looking at it the wrong way. Leasing allows you to guarantee your out of pocket over those three years. So instead of saying "I'm out $67K" - you might think of it...

Are the seat controls for the drivers seat the same as passenger seat? I don't understand why the two seats would be different (but I will be checking).

Mine got a little worse - never rattled, just was annoying. They ordered new rails for the seat and it seems to be better. I saw the cost - over $800!!

I agree - the steering on the 6GC is simply amazing (one of the reasons I picked it up). I drove a 535xi prior to picking up my car and it felt worse than my 2003 Lexus GS430 :)

I'm a bit confused by your comments above. I went from a 550, to a M5, to a X6, to my 650GC. In each car, the interior improved - slightly in the M5, more in the X6, and wow a ton in the GC. To me...

One interesting thing is that the exhaust changes sound around the 2,000 mile mark. That seems to be when it really opens up. Prior to that it is a bit muted from what I remember.

And I'm pretty sure that all variants of the 6, including the GC are built on the 5-series platform.
