    Drives brilliantly, love the handling. Not so keen on the runflat tyres- will change as soon as they wear out. Amazing performance/economy combination. 50mpg on easy motorway runs is ridiculous for a 300bhp+ car.

    Most comfortable car in current BMW range with best options. Very large car so can be tricky when parking. Excellent build quality, very quick.

    I don't do that many miles and keep it in an immaculate condition. Heavily modified so that it has become a true head-turner. I have 21" deep concave alloys fitted with rear tires as wide as an M6. I think it will out live me. Get compliments all the time. The most beautiful car on the road. Stunning to drive and iconic.

    Stunningly beautiful car with low slung athletic presence, distinctive styling and elegance. One of BMW's best interiors with luxurious materials and attention to detail. Spirited performance and handling from BMW make this grand tourer a pleasure to own and drive. Take 3 - 4 extended test drives as car sensitive to specifications - base car arguably not worth the £25,000 premium to a 5 Series - but with right specification, it is every bit better than the rep mobile 5 Series. Always drive the longest way home because it's so fast, frugal and fun with no gremlins.

    Stunning looking and superbly comfortable and capable. Gets so many remarks. I have had some great cars in the past but this beats the lot. Efficient yet powerful, sporty yet refined, it ticks all the boxes. I use all three seats in the rear occasionally which is why I chose this model and yes the 5th seat isn't ideal for an adult but at least it's there unlike the CLS or Panamera. Not had a single problem, gremlin or squeak in 3 months and every time I drive it I'm looking for the long way home. A superb do-everything car, but it should be for £80k.

    After a few years of perferring Audi, I returned to BMW and wanted something sporty, elegant, different but practical - enter the 6 series GC. And what a car! I bought it 6 months ago pre-registered; it came with lots of extras (too many to list) but importantly, came with the M Sport Plus package, sunroof, all-round cameras and in Moonstone. I absolutely love driving it. I use it on my daily commute which is a 120 mile round trip on a combination of A road and motorway. Cold mornings are a pleasure having heated seats but also heated steering wheel and it all warms up quickly. I mainly drive it in Comfort+ mode but do occasionally drop into Sport+ which completely transforms the car. We recently took the car to Tuscany on holiday, returning via the French Riviera stopping over in Monte Carlo / Monaco where it was completely at home. Then, a near non-stop drive back to Calais from Aix-en-Provence (about 650 miles). Effortless and returned 38.8mpg average. There really is nothing negative I can say about the car except, I very early on changed the run-flats for normal tyres; I couldn't live with the harshness and the thudding that was synonymous with the run-flats. Changing the tyres completely changed the feel of the car on the road and quietened the ride quite noticeably. In summary, very pleased, very good value and great smile factor..!
