2013 650xi Gran Coupe ORDERED!
Well, my GC order has been placed, as follows:
2013 BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe
Titanium Silver Metallic
(Ind) Canyon Brown Full Merino Leather
- Anthracite Headliner
- Individual Door Sill Finishers
Fine Line Oak Wood Trim
Cold Weather Package
Driver Assistance Package
Luxury Seating Package
Premium Sound Package
- Bang & Olufsen Sound System
Full LED Lights
Automatic High Beams
Shadowline Trim [special order]
The only remaining question is the issue of the headliner. According to the dealership, if you order Canyon Brown leather as an ala carte option on a non-MSport car, you get the standard Anthracite (instead of Light Gray) Headliner. They are currently checking to see if it's possible to special order the Anthracite Alcantara Headliner and, if so, what the price tag would be for it. I'm not sure how important it is to me, as long as the headliner is black, but I'll wait to make the final call when I hear the price tag.
I love my '12 Coupe. 85-90% of the time it's all that I need and more, but the other 10% of the time, I really miss the ability to have rear seat passengers. Or, at least, rear seat passengers with legs. I considered getting something else in addition (SUV or a 7-Series), as I've done in the past when I owned 6er Coupes, but I think I'd rather just have one vehicle that meets all of my needs. So, here's hoping the GC is it!
Here's a picture or two from BMW's BYO site. Just imagine it with Shadowline Trim and 35% tint.
