The "new" 5 :)

"Meet Goldilocks, aka the BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe. "This is what the F10 5 Series should have been from day one," opined Evans. "Forget this Gran Coupe nonsense -- just call this thing the 5 Series and let the current car quietly fade from memory." Scott went on to say that this "may be BMW's best car at the moment." I sure think it is, and have been referring to it as "my favorite BMW" since I first drove it back in August ..."

Love this car. As I had better since it's approximately $25k more than a comparably equipped 535.

Complete ripoff, but gorgeous looking car. No reason why a loaded 650xi GC is more than a CLS AMG

One of my favorite cars on the road today. Especially in the amaro brown and white interior. Yum

My favorite 4 door on the market, followed closely by the F10, though I think the 6GC could be either knockout stunning, or slightly awkward, whereas the F10 has nothing awkward about it.

Some of us taller guys need the extra utilization of headroom on the F10, though, which makes some of his remarks a bit not too fair.

I love the proper trashing they gave the "old man in an Ed Hardy suit" (credit, me) CLS exterior though, as it seems about all Auto Journo's find the styling of that car to be a terrible representation of what the "CLS" name introduced in '05.
