newbee here.
bling-bling or not, I just think that 22's look out of proportion for this size car.

I don't have a 6er yet, but my vote would be for the 20's.

That's good news. BMW might be the only company that does not lockout the NAV while in motion. I really don't know if any one else does the same.

M6 is 383 ft lbs at 6100 rpm
650i is...
