E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Thumbs up Pointers for burning a MP3 CD...(Using iTunes)

Hint for burning a MP3 CD if you use iTunes: (this was done on a Mac G5)

1. Create a playlist
2. Drop the songs you want on a CD into that playlist
3. Sort the list by album or artist (not sure if Genre works)
4. Burn the CD (after setting the preferences to burn as MP3)

The action you take in step #3 will determine the folder structure. ex. Sort by album, your folders will be the album names...

Also note that I have found that ID3 tags versions 1.1, 2.2, 2.3 & 2.4 work great, songs tagged with ID3 tags version 2.2 will not display the Artist/Song info when using the "expanded" option.

Note: MP3's are only playable in the "in dash" CD-Player (not the changer) and right now only on 2006 650's. The common belief is that a software update will come for 645's in the near future.
