2010 BMW 5 series GT


So many things wrong here.
First the starting price before options. Which is pretty crazy.
Then there is the horrific 15/21 MPG rating. For a 2010 car!
Sure, it has a lot of power. But in this car, a 5 door luxury hatchback sedan, a bit less than 400hp will do just fine.

The car is actually pretty impressive in person, but the great BMW 6 cylinder should be plenty.

"The car is actually pretty impressive in person,"

--No, it's not. I've been to the BMW dealer, I've seen it first hand. It just isn't all that great. It's "O:K". I left without any desire to ever get one.

What's impressive is that it ever made it to production. "Ultimate Driving Machines" my ass! I want to love BMWs again, but I just can't. The latest crop of BMWs are tragic.

I hope it has a 30 gallon gas tank because even if I had the money, it's just not worth the hassle stopping at a gas station every 10 minutes.

I have not seen it in person and can imagine it probably looks like a low-riding X6.

Vince:

1. It is based off of the 7 Series platform, of course it is going to be bigger, more expensive and less fuel efficient.

2. It has a twin turbo V8, it isn't MEANT to be efficient. They have diesels for that.

3. It is a very nice vehicle.

This is one BMW we could have done without. Too expensive and only God knows what nitch this is trying to occupy.

Well, that's why it's called a GT!

The CTS-V's mileage numbers are horrendous too at 12/18, but that's because it's got some ridiculous-sized Corvette engine in it.

And the fact that cars weigh so damn much these days doesn't help either.
