    So after toying with various scenarios including selling both my 6 series and my Porsche and getting a 991 Porsche 911 C2S for everything and also looking at various other options to just replace the 640d including 840i, M6 and Panamera I have actually traded my 2013 640d GC with 62K miles for a 2018 640d GC with 12K miles.. and kept my old Porsche.. After weighing everything up the 6GC is just such a good package, plenty of space for 4 adults when required, comfortable, fast, frugal and still feels a special place to be. The new car came up for sale locally at a main dealer and the offer on my old car was better than expected so a deal was done and I collected on Friday. As mentioned in a previous post the new car does not have comfort access but does have a lot of other options including Sunroof, Adaptive LED lights with high beam assist, Surround view, reversing camera, updated HUD with speed limit display compared to the old car. Harmon Kardon sound, soft close doors, heated steering wheel and M sport pro pack. Finished in Sonic Speed Blue (which I believe is only an option on the last of the F series 6 series and the new 8 series) with black leather interior.



    A couple of pictures before the heavens opened.. Hopefully easier to keep clean than Carbon Black..

    Thanks guys for all the kind words and sorry for the delayed reply, been out enjoying the car and the weather.:). Took it through Wensleydale yesterday and the drive is simply epic. Even on 20" alloys like the last car it feels smoother but I think BMW have tweaked the suspension on the LCI versions. Anyway had some time to use the adaptive LED headlights and they are very impressive. Still need to get used to surround view but I am sure it is a useful addition to the reversing camera. Very happy so far. Will update as I get more used to it.
