E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
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.

For some, 24's and 26's are actually OK. For me, 19's, 20's maybe 21's are the max. My 2 cents worth. But what a beautiful car. Of course if your wheels are 20's I take it all back. And you have the best color that BMW makes.

very nice! barbra color is sick.

laddcruzer... so if reignmann didnt post that there were 22s on his car, you would like it? only because he said there 22s, you dont like it. but yet you kinda contradict yourself, and say if there 20s i take it back. But, you like how the car sits, but since they really are 22s it changes everything? :P ...??

I'm also objective enough to know that Lexus is not perfect....but I love it's reliability and style. I plan to continue driving them but when my finances allow, I would love to add a 6 series bimmer. No Lexus is in my top 5 best cars, the 6 is.
Just my two pee, I bought new lexus cars in the UK, a RX300 SE poor quality paint sent it back, RX300SE replacement terrible fuel economy (16MPG pottering around) sent that back......... last one GS300SE stone chipped paint in the first week affecting the wheels and front body parts, this was driving on made up roads; not dirt tracks, had the paint checked by a specialist, they confirmed the car had "Extensive repraying". I challenged Lexus UK and they said that they had a bodyshop actually on the docks where the cars come into the counrty JUST to repair cars damaged by the people that unload them!!!!!!!:......... dumped Lexus. Had 4 new Audi's since, all very good cars, now ordered BMW 635D Sport Deep Sea Blue with Cream leather,with loads of extras, can't wait for it to arrive.

I like barbera, I don't think you should be sick over it. How a car and it's components look in a picture is often different than in person. I didn't know what size wheels those were and if they were 20's I would know what they looked like in person and would approve. And as I said IMO.

I agree computer monitors really suck at showing colors ..so far from what people have said it is a nicer red tha neven the picturer indicates(I am colorblind so what see is not the true color)

My thoughts exaclty. I think they are 20's lowered. Either way it's nice, and those wheels definately are not cheap. Nice though. I'm just to cheap to spend that much on wheels. I'm still in the market.

Yeap, thought they seemed a touch too big for my taste. Confirming that they are 22's is consistant with my previous posting. I love everything about the car, including the bitchin wheels, I just have always felt that 20 or 21's was the limit on the size of wheels for a 6 series. Of course it's only my opinion and I know a lot of individuals on this forum do like 22's and larger. It's a good thing we don't all like the same thing.
