We arrive into an overcast Munich afternoon, and make our way to a nondescript BMW facility in an industrial estate 20 miles south of Bavaria's capital. There's no fuss or formality when we turn up, but as TopGear is the first media to get a proper steer in the GTS, and though the BMW people greet us warmly, it's clear that damaging this thing is not an option. Grossglockner, they say. No problem. It's not snowing. Yet. You kill the car, we kill you... Sorry, did you say you wanted milk in your coffee?
