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.

Challenge ?

I love my 6 but does anyone experience this or is it just me? Do you get challenged by other cars when stopped at stoplight or driving ? I don't experience this when I drive my 3 series or my Lexus but it happens alot when I drive my 6.

I'm sure we all go through this. Here is your answer....the other driver has a thirst to know what you know about the 6.....don't let the secret out. Keep the true performance of the Ultimate Driving Machine in house with it's members. That gets to 'em more than the space you would put in between them and you on the next curve ahead ....Phil

Yeah, he's right. Let them be. Lets face it, despite the 6er being a competent GT, it's no super car so there's bound to be tons of cars faster than ours. I agree it gets to them fools more when you turn down their offer to race.

I've owned mine for three months now. I tell you what I have a problem with: Every patrol officer loves hitting me with RADAR and Laser. I just came back from a trip from New Hampshire to Western Connecticut and must have gotten laser tagged at least seven times. In the past with my 330Cic I can't remember once. The cruise control was locked in at 71MPH. Locally, it is a real pain in the ass with the instant on RADAR every time. By the way, I haven't received a ticket in 30 years.

Some (no one here of course!) may feel otherwise but, in my opinion, the 6 is one of those automobiles that just appears fast even when at a dead standstill, not to mention its jaw-dropping good looks!

Leslierc, you're right. I guess I'll have to behave myself and be very careful.

Have you ever pulled up to someone and wanted to challenge them in your 6? I would assume no. So what that tells me is that others see you but you don't see them That's what happens when you have the 6 man, it's a magnet but what should set you apart from the crowd is the fact that they want to test you, which makes you "DA MAN"

Mein Auto: fun cars
I don't get the challenges at the lights as much as I seem to attract a lot of aggressive driving out on the roads. I can be tooling along at 5-6 over the speed limit along with the rest of traffic and pass someone along with the rest of the crowd and the next thing I know they're speeding up, coming aside, looking over etc..... i know it's not me because you can't see into the car, so it must just be the car itself.

I just laugh now, no need to get out the proverbial tape measure with someone driving *insert car with coffee can exhaust* and trying to race between the lights.
