I went to the BMW dealership expecting to buy a 550iX, not knowing the GT existed. When I saw the GT, I was overwhelmed by the appearance, and after a closer look and test drive I leased one. The dealer was able to find a GT which filled my shopping list. While I fully enjoy uniqueness of the car, I wonít be buying another GT. I find it too large and not nimble enough for my needs. It is a great vehicle for the right audience
interesting observation (not 'nimble-enough) ... did you find the '7' more to your liking insofar as 'handling' compared to this GT?
we had a 2000 '7' but the newer '7's' might not be a fair comparison to each other either . thanks for your help !
