From what I have been reading, I believe this is the 8 Series. Since we haven't seen any other prototypes yet, I suspect the 6 Series coupe will gap and we'll only have the 6 Series GT on 2019.

If I didn't put the stock tires and wheels in storage when new, then I usually put on new tires with about 12kmi before the end of my lease.
