6 Series
The 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.

Anyone have these or pics of them on a car? Its hard to tell without seeing them on the car. The positives are that there will no effects on BMW warranty.

And the negative is cleaning the brake dust from every spoke.

Putting wheels on your 6er does NOT void the warranty.

I've been searching pictures of these wheels no.101 on a E63/E64 but can't find any so far. I've seen them on a 7 series and they look great. Here's a picture of them on a 7. As BMW has specifically tailored made versions of no.101 for the 6 series (i.e. with the correct wheel offsets and overall tyre diameter etc.), warranty is no problem.

Thanks for the pic. I'll keep looking and will post if I find anything.

101 has long been a favorite of mine as well, but am waiting for new tires, a change of heart or deciding on NOT getting an M6. But in any case this are the only 6er I remember seeing although I think I may have seen another.

Dave - My favorite wheels, the 128s, are listed here under the E64 (which is also my car): http://bmwwheels.com/bmwwheels_detai...128&Series=E64

Do you think these have the proper offsets (ETs)? What is the affiliation of this site with BMW, if any?

I saw some 128, but in 20 or 21" on a 6er. I did not like them as they looked way out of porportion (must of been 21"). But in 19" I think they would be great. 128s on any BMW always seem "right".

I would think they are correct offset. These guys are Chapman BMW of Scottsdale, AZ. I seen several BMW owners buy from them with good reports. Call them they will know.

Nope just wheels. And they are used wheels by the way. Although in good condition.

I have sent them an e-mail. If I buy these wheels I wonder if Phunk will have a heart attack. However, they are OEM, so probably not.

I like the 125's, look easy to keep clean as well, although they pretty close to the 17" wheels on the E46's.
