On the floor, I think the 640GC is stunning to look at.
Nicely optioned $82k;
white/brown/gray pop wood
premium sound/ceramic controls/HUD/apps/LED

I would choose 2013 Audi A8 base 3.0 over 640GC @ $82k. YRMV

No doubt the A7 & A8 are not too shabby. How about 650i GC? For us, no Audi or Porsche dealer in our town and the CLS seats were too hard for my wife. 62% residual vs. 55% on the 650 put us in the 640. Plus wife thought it was plenty fast. Same as a 535i or Panamera. If the residual is less than 62% at the end of the lease, we could always purchase the vehicle or upgrade to 650i GC or M6 GC. It's a beautiful car in person.

I think you chose a very fine BMW, new 640GC. Excellent colors and options as you listed. I would also choose a 640 v. 650.
I really like BMW customer service, 4/50 zero cost maintenance, residuals, discounts, etc.
The 640GC I saw on the dealer's floor was stunning and would be a very special car for me.
I have had four 7 series, so for me A8 would be my current pick over GC.

Good luck with your new BMW, enjoy!!

I think it's hard for most to imagine that the closest dealer is a 350 mile drive at best... And don't worry about the tow mileage/time!
