    It kinda ruins the GT acronym used in other car names...... Maserati GranTurismo, Nissan GT-R, etc.

    It's not going to create any new BMW sales, it'll just eat into 7-series sales.


    This. The 5 GT is insanely expensive.

    I was shocked when I saw the sticker on the activehybrid 5 GT... over $90,000! [​IMG]

    I like the look. No idea it was so expensive, though.

    they should just make a liftback sedan as standard. liftback (or 5-door as it is called in UK) is so much more useful, and looks exactly the same as the sedan.

    The weird thing is, it's based on the 7-series. NOT the 5 series, even though it's called 5 series GT.

    It's also bigger and wider than the new 5-series sedan.

    What will be interesting is the rumored 3 series GT, which is much the same only more svelte. The new 3 sedan is now a nearly perfect size, being a possible substitute if I am ever forced to get rid of my 9-5 Saab. If the GT adds a few inches of leg and headroom to that and keeps most of the basic dimensions intact, then you'll really have something to consider.

    Get the touring wagon. That thing makes Janet Napolitano look like a beauty queen. Yes, it's ugly IRL too.

    The first pics of the Ferrari 458 italia had a similar problem, I think. Based on initial pics I think many people were unimpressed but it's a very pretty car. Have a hard time seeing how that new BMW could have the same problem though.
