I hear the 6er super stretch limo is coming soon... How big can they make this car?!? I understand and appreciate the 6 GC, but really?!? The tradition I'd the 6er is a flagship coupe. 4- door coupe? Okay, it works and looks damn good. I'm not sold on the flagship coupe being transformed into a station wagon. "Wagoning" the 5er makes more sense to me.

It came from my cousin who owns a leasing/financing company that specializes in high end cars, and is a fan and owner of German high end cars, so take it as you will.
Pics of the M6 GC look like the regular GC, which looks like the 2012 coupe. By the time the M6 GC makes it to market the regular F12/13 will almost be up for LCI. I find it hard to believe that the first year of the M6 GC will look outdated in such a short period of time if they make that drastic change to the front of the 6er. That being said, I was convinced that BMW wouldn't give the '13s the more powerful engine, so I apparently know nothing - and BMW sent me a patronizing gift to prove it
