Mein Auto: 2013 650xi Gran Coupe
650xi GC EUROPEAN DELIVERY

I am about ready to order a 650xi GC for European Delivery and would like some input on several issues. First, I'd like some input on the color Orion silver. The color swatch looks very nice but I havn't actually seen a car in this color. I would also like input on the leather dash vs standard dash. I will be ordering the black nappa. I'm a bit OCD with regard to scratches and such, and I'm concerned about the durability of the leather dash
along with the durability of the stitching.
Also, am I correct in that the active roll bar stabilization is not available on the 650xi GC? If it is available is this option worth the money? Lastly, are soft close doors available mon the GC?
All input will be greatly appreciated.

I have seen Orion Silver in person on the GC and it looke like the picture below not a bad color but nothing special imo if I were you I would choose an Individual color or go with Mineral White but that's just me . Now as far as the difference between leather dash and regualr dash is that the regular dash is more dorable but doesn't look as nice as the leather one but if you are OCD regarding scratch then I suggest you pick the none-leather.

I don't know about the roll bar stabilization but I don't know that soft close door is avilable for the GC.

I don't believe soft close doors are an option on the gran coupe. Can't remember reading anything about that.

They might be. I could swear the M6 Cabrio I saw last week had soft close doors. This may mean all 2013 6ers have the option.

Then the parts exist. Just a question of whether they are a menu option or special order.

I'm sure that the GC has soft close door since mine does but I don't know if it's available for the US.

According the the owner's manual on page 38, the doors will Soft Close.

The same info in the 6 Series brochure on page 58

Just click "skip" when asked to register.

Both the above are from the BMW USA site, and I am hoping they are correct!

Yes. Soft close doors are definitely available on the GC. In fact, it is standard on 650i GC here in Hong Kong.
