I love the look of the GT, I'm in love with the idea of a Gran Tourismo/Grand Tourer, I consider my "slow" and "poor mans" F02 in that GT category as well. Perfect for long distance travel in comfort, that just eats the miles up.

But its looks are definitely polarizing and not for everyone. I think that its a positive thing, its a special car and it stands out. If I had a family and wanted a wagon, I'd seriously consider the F07.

The M5 is very understated, very minimal, only the quad exhausts and side gills would tell the casual observer its not a garden variety 528 with 20" wheels. So its funny they trash the F07, but at the end of the day, the GT probably gets more looks - both positive and negative than any F10 would.

Enjoy your car, its only for the distinct taste. Your car is brie to their cheddar
