Car arrived

Got to pick up the gran coupe the other day and I love it. Everyone is in awe with the fronzen bronze, I really like the interior but it's not every ones taste. I showed it to my parents this morning and they didn't care for the interior much. After driving this I feel like I got ripped off with all the range rovers I have had over the years. The electronics in the bmw are on another level.

Here are some pics, still need to get the car tinted

Is the insert on the steering wheel leather?

The white wood is embedded into the steering wheel with the leather wrapped around it. You can't feel the wood while driving unless you really try.

They are vossen cv4 wheels. I tried to find wheels that the average person would think are stock, I just didn't really like the individual wheels that came with the car.

I have to admit that, at first, I wasn't quite certain about the interior; but it really is good looking! Great choice!

I need to figure that out as I go, might just need to do a mobile detail a couple times a month. I am not sure if I am worrying too much about it, or if I am not worried enough. I will know in a couple months though.

Yeah people have mixed feelings about it, but usually warm up to it after a few minutes. It is pretty much UT longhorn colors, so a lot of random people here are loving it.

As much as I love the car and the colors, I am not loving the attention. I knew it would get attention, but didn't realize it was going to be this much. People always looking back when they pass, people taking pictures of it when it's parked, etc...I always got black on black cars because they never stuck out. I wanted something different this time around, but I might have went a little too extreme. It's going to take me a bit to get used to the attention the car brings.

Mein Auto: Mercedes E550 4matic
Hi ,

I'm a newbie here ; also a newbie to BMW. I've been driving the Mercedes 500 series since 2002 and have really liked them.

I just ordered a BMW 650xi Grand Coupe as my E550 4matic lease comes due in march. I'm getting it in Black with the cinnamon brown nappa;cold weather;driver assistance;lux seating;premium sound;adaptive drive;headsup;active cruise & full LED.

I test drove a 640 coupe because that was the closest thing my dealer had so I don't know exactly what to expect so I was glad to find this site and others who have experience with this car. I'd love to hear all about your until I get mine.

Best regards,

Tom

Cheers!

I don't really know because I wasn't in any great hurry. My Mercedes lease doesn't expire until March. The Sales person told me the car was in production on Dec 14.if that means anything.

If it comes in early , hopefully they'll do something for me.

Regards,

Tom

If the car was in production on the 14th it should arrive at the end of this month or first week of Feb. Exciting!
