Soft close door is standard in Hong Kong for 650i GC, so is auto high beam (which is useless in Hong Kong anyway).

AFAIK, Electronic trunk open/close is not available for the 6GC anywhere in the world.

No soft close doors or electronic trunk close (although it does open). I believe that Auto High Beams come with the LED headlights, rather than as a separate option.

That's because you have LED lights and that's part of the pkg. but all other BMWs have it as $250 stand alone option. I guess they want to force costomers to spend $1900.

I have had auto high beams on 2 other cars and stopped using them within days. In my opinion it is the most annoying feature a car can have. The high beams almost always stay on for too long and blind other drivers, I am yet to try them on a bmw but on the other cars they were way to sensitive.
