It may be easier and less risky in regard to parking/backing up, folks hitting your car with their luggage as they maneuver between parked cars and to receiving door dings etc under tight conditions.

Granted 3" isn't a lot however makes a difference especially in dealing with the narrower (compact car) parking spaces we are seeing more and more of.
Just saying, one of the worst ways to end a long trip is a visit to the body shop for a repair estimate.
Yes indeed. Exactly for the reasons you mentioned, I sometimes wished my C6 was 3 inches narrower. So clearly I can appreciate how the GS with +n 3 inches will further complicate parking in congested lots. Also, turning into up and down uneven driveways. Many Thanks
