BMW has $7,500 credit on the two door 6-series but not the 4 door (GC). So per them, there is no oversupply and as pointed out, $800 a month is only going to happen with a lot of money down.

Staggered?

Agreed. The 650xi GC is about $18K more than a comparable 550xi. Does it look better? Yes, to me. But $18K for looks? Wow. Plus the 550 has better interior trim choices from what I can tell. ...

Sounds very similar to my old M5 (2008). I've never used the REST function and HATE people who drive with their fogs on. So two positives there. I honestly can't get over how much better the M3...

No, it is not from the heating elements. It is in the glass - in fact, I don't think there are/were any heating elements where the distortion was originally? As noted, it is better. Perfect? No...

Do you both have 2012s? What month were they produced? Any chance you have the 3 person rear seat?

Others with older X6s are not reporting this problem - so I wonder if it is a 2012 issue?
