AutoSpies: Exclusive FIRST Shots From BMW North American 6-Series Press Launch!

AutoSpies.com does it again bringing us exclusive first photos from the BMW North American 6 series press launch.

BMW pulled out all the stops with this luxury hotel in Mexico as their press launch for the F12 and F13 6 Series. The shape of the new 6 looks perfectly at home at this resort, I wonder how many of the other guests have a 6 series on order back home.

Take a look at the pictures and then jump over to AutoSpies for the full gallery - http://shows.autospies.com/gallery/2...unch-Cabo-280/

Update with MORE pictures - So, if this is your first time tuning in, to make a long story short, AutoSpies Agent 001 is south of the border in Mexico giving the 2012 BMW 650i Convertible a work out. Ss you can tell from the pictures, it must be horrible, right?

Jump over to AutoSpies.com for the fully gallery of the drop dead gorgeous new BMW 6 Series in Mexico - http://autospies.com/news/MORE-Pictu...-Border-63555/

Probably. But the reason why is because its "safer". Less unique. More cookie cutter. Less interesting. Less sporty. Less aggressive. Utterly boxy. Square.

Boring.

People like cookie cutter. Look how many people own Honda's.

I have been waiting with excitement to see the new 6 and I have to say I'm somewhat disappointed. It doesn't have a "Wowness" factor. It looks more like the rest of the BMW cars. I liked how different the previous 6 was from the other BMW cars. Also, the front bottom of car lacks style.

However, I do like the LED lights and improved power. The interior looks great as well.

Perhaps the previous 6 was more exciting b/c it was a totally new Car and not a redesign.

I can't wait to see it in person; maybe I'll be more impressed
