In all honesty, I find the GT to be much better looking than the Wraith. I hope BMW continues to offer the GT in the US for years to come, but fear slow sales will seal its fate.

Love the look of the matte finish and wish I was able to find one at the time of my purchase. It's a shame that the area around the shifter is not finished in matte as well.

I have the softshut option and find one of the doors, rear driver side, to be significantly harder to close. Will be bringing it into the dealership to see what can be done to adjust it.
