So how are they?

Most of the reviews I've read are quite positive and I'm happy to see that. I think the GC is stunning, in and out. I'm very interested in 1, but like others, feel its somewhat overpriced. $106,000 650i GC vs a similarly equipped 550i at around $75,000 vs. a 750i for about same $106,000 (I'm using a specific car I liked as the reference but same across board). The 6 is supposed to fall in between, in pricing as well. $30k more to go from a 5 to a 6 is stunning. That said, I am not a fan of the F10 drive or handling, certainly not when compared to the E60. Even with M-sport. They really took the BMw out of the BMW with the F10. My opinion. Still a beautiful looker and plush.

Any thoughts from new GC owners in a position to offer a comparison opine?

Some starting points:

Handling - Either version
Seats- comfy? Supportive? Better than 5/7 luxury seats?
MPG real life - just curious, not deciding factor.

Forum is very light on traffic. I know it's a new model, actually a year old, but should be buzzing with interest.
