As a new GT 530d Owner from Vienna Austria I am happy to join this community.
I went for the GT because my main requirement for a car is COMFORT !
This means that since I am no longer in my thirties I want to get in and out of my car without any physical effort (and I don't want looking dogs through the window right into my eyes).
The last 15 or so years it was a RangeRover 4,6 HSE and several Vans (Renault Grand Espaces and a VW Sharan) - all with this throne-like seating position and ease of entry and exit :-))
Since there is no longer the necessity of an SUV or VAN I looked around what it possibly could be and - tadaa - there was one and JUST one - the GT.
Everything else like Audi A7 or Merc just did not qualify (besides being still more expensive than a GT).
And since here in Europe those 8-Cylinder guzzlers are no longer political correct and the diesels have become extremely quiet, it of course had to be one of these.
Plus some options.... Here it is.
And the reason why I love the looks is easyly explained:
The most beautiful car I have owned (before the GT) was the Rover 3500 SD1 (from 1986 to 1993)
and if you compare the pictures you will understand why.....
