Mein Auto: 2013 BMW 640i Gran Coupe
Got a new Gran Coupe

I just picked up my 2013 640i Gran Coupe around a week ago, fully loaded with a Moonstone Metallic Exterior, Opal White Leather, and Dark Red Sycamore Wood trim. Does anyone else have a Gran Coupe on here yet? I like it, but I think I'm going to trade up to a 650i xDrive when it comes out or a 750Li xDrive.

I don't have any pics of my own yet, the dealer might have his pics still up, want me to post those? I'll probably post some pics soon when I get a chance to take my SLR out.

Congratulations on your GC! Just so you know, the rule around here is that it didn't happen without pictures.. Interesting that you're already thinking about the 650 GC or the 7...why is that? You're one of the first, if not the first, around here to actually own the GC, so please post your impressions regarding the car.

Well I traded my old Jaguar XF in for this car, and I was waiting for the 650i to come out , but my old Crapuar was having a ton of issues, decided to just trade it in. Then I saw the new 7 with the awesome headlights, I've always wanted a 7 and I figure I won't lose too much money if I trade this car in soon enough.

Drove a friends Panamera the other day while in South Florida. Absolutely loved the car. It's a drivers car. Loved his Yachting Blue (smoky blue) exterior with the Yachting Blue dash and light colored seats. Was really spectacular and driving it, I couldn't get the grin off of my face for hours.

Unfortunately, there is no Audi or Porsche dealer in Lubbock, TX, so they are not an option.

We pick up my wife's 640i GC in Munich on the 20th of Sept.

Would you mind taking a better picture of the rear side shades fully extended? I'm wondering how much of the window they actually cover.

Very nice! Are you perceiving any difference in power or torque going from a V8 to a V6? I ask only because I did when I was test driving the Pana4 coming from the 750ix, and the reason why I got the 4S. I guess I just like the power from the bigger engines.

Actually I got it mostly because it was pretty and stylish. A Girl thing. My husband is the one that cares about POWER!!! Macho thing I guess.

Wow, what a car! Beautiful. I understand about power, my wife's the same way. Wanted more cush for the tush and 6 cylinder was just fine.

No doubt about the macho thing. Actually, I was speaking from the perspective of being accoustomed to a certain level of performance in a V8 powered car...which was what I thought you previously were driving...and wondering whether you perceived a difference in the 640 GC.

I understand what you said the first time. So to satisfy your question. The answer is no because I probably didn't drive the E550 Coupe in a way to feel its potential power. Again I am a woman and for me that is not a priority. Better to look good than to go fast. Who is going have the time to check you out if your always going fast but the Police. Plus the extra I save on gas? Lets just say shoes are expensive. Enough said!!!

Come on, you should know better. BMW does not do V6s. Their 6 cylinder engines are in-line.

It's Ivory based on the window sticker info. That's all I have to go off

How do you like the ivory leather, ordered it on my x6 without seeing it in person. From the pictures it looks great though.

I love it so so much. I had seen it in other cars but the way it fits with the black leather and white stitching on the GC interior, it exceeded my expectations. What color is the exterior of your X6?

It may be a car forum and I may be a guy that loves cars but I love Herve Leger just as much. Beautiful dress. Is it wrong that I know that.

I am buying a GC without a doubt in 3 years when my 335 lease is up. Beautiful car. Ur gonna love it.

Picked up our GC on the 13th of Sept. Now waiting on re-delivery stateside. Can't wait to get back behind the wheel. The autobahn and the twisties were a blast.

Look forward to seeing Moonstone. I couldn't find one at any dealership so we went with Carbon Black which we love!
