Favorite design aspect

I have always loved the design of the MB CLS and was just waiting till BMW had a rebuttal. Looking forward to seeing one in person, but from the pictures the car looks amazing. I really like the turn signal LED's on the bottom of the headlight assembly, very aggressive. However, I have to say from a modern standpoint, the Bang and Olufsen speakers look really well in the car, almost a discussion piece.

If it's anything like the coupe, it will be a sight to see!

While the 4 door GC is 4.4 inches longer than the Coupe, the GC 650xi is going to have 445 hp and 480 lb-ft twist, good for a jaw dropping 4.5 sec 0-60, while the new M5 is listed at 4.3 sec. But the GC is wider, longer, lower, with more creature comforts (largest infotainment display in a production BMW so far) and looks nothing like a 5 series with M pkg. I'm thinking GC will cannibalize more than a few M5 sales.

Not according to the official BMW USA statement: "With 500 lb-ft torque, 560 horses and a 0 to 60 time of 4.3 seconds, to say it performs would be an understatement."

For consistency, for both sets of 0-60 times I used estimates from the official BMW USA press releases.

So yeah I guess a M5 will compete with the 650 Gran Coupe for loyalty, what about when the M6 comes out, and what if an owner did a Dinan to there 650i Gran Coupe? The possibilities!
