Hi there, we went for a GT as we wanted to fit our mountain bikes inside and move the odd large piece of furniture, and can sleep in the car if necessary under the stars - moved to a GT from having 7 Series cars. We found the handling of the car over potholes very poor compared to 7 series, and it wandered a bit at speed. Perhaps it was the run flat tyres? Hubby has just put 21" wheels and normal tyres on it so we can pretend that we are young and have a hot hatch! These new - NON run flat - wide tyres have cured the handling problems and it now feels far more secure. Very happy with car now. (self employed 50 year olds)
