Threadjack...

Gawd I HATED my 2003 GS (the worst 39 months of car ownership in my life). Curious how you find the GC in comparison to your GS?

Active Roll Stabilization and some throttle response in comfort mode would make this car really close to perfect (ok, can they take 500 lbs out too please? ) :)

I needed a car that seats 5, so the Panamera was out. I also think the 6GC looks better (both inside and out). Still, I would have at least test drove the Panamera if it sat 5.

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.

The weird part is how when the 5GT came out and they made specific reference to the fact that it was actually built on the 7-series platform. Either way, I think I agree with you guys -who cares :)...
