BMW invited us to test the all-new 6 Series Gran Coupe (internally dubbed F06) [full info thread] which is set to complement the already available Coupe (F13) and Cabrio (F12) versions. Here’s our review after two days and roughly 160 miles.

Let’s begin with some facts and figures. At 197.1 inches, the Gran Coupe is about four inches longer than the F13 Coupe, and only 2.7 inches shorter than the F01 7 Series. To allow the additional doors and rear space, the wheelbase of the Gran Coupe has been increased by 4.5 inches over the Coupe, making for 116.9 inches in total. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 460 litres and can accommodate three golf clubs. Split-down rear seats allow for a maximum capacity of 1265 … CONTINUED

Congratulations to M5POST member and happy new M5 owner, HHSAM, on the delivery of his F10 M5 in Moonstone Individual, the first such color M5 on the site.

The exterior color is Moonstone Metallic (one of BMW’s recommended Individual colors for the new M5). The interior is Platinum Merino full extended leather and the trim is Auburn Sycamore. The Moonstone Metallic color with its depth and ever changing look in different lights is stunning and even more impressive in person.

This is a Gulf spec M5, so it came standard with all options included.

We’ve updated our Owner Registry to include this Moonstone M5 and HHSAM will surely chime in with his own words.

The 2012 M5 (F10) will come in a fairly extensive choice of colors, including some beautiful individual exterior color options. One of the individual exterior color options is Brilliant White Metallic, which we’ve spotted hanging out at BMW M HQ in Garching, Germany.

Besides the individual brilliant white metallic exterior paint, the this M5 also has other individual options, such as the black painted mirrors and wheels. The red leather interior looks great set off against the white and black exterior color scheme.

As for not having blue brakes, it’s probably because it’s not a production M5, but a factory test car.

We’ve put together a color preview guide for the F10 M5, which can be seen at http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=546540
