Is nobody talking about the G05?

They are now.... :)

I haven’t seen anything about it yet as the Press seems to be focusing on those models that are ‘pausing’ production due to the change to WLTP testing which has - and no surprise - increased CO2, put hybrids and their emissions, and mpg dropping into the spotlight.

BMW are ceasing the M3, 520ED, and certain X5 & X6 variants.  Some of the 3-series are off the current order books too.  BIK Tax bands for some hybrid models are moving up by between 1 and 4 as the tests now need these cars to turn on engines and not get away with just being run on batteries.

The G05 pictures were being talked about on the Forum though.

It looks nice - not all that different in terms of exterior looks - at least to me, though perhaps it would be more apparent when seeing them side by side.

Really don't want that glass gearknob though!

That's really helpful! Took me 2 scrolls to realise what you had done, at first I just thought it was lots of pictures of the new car :)

Wouldn't say no though.
