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.

I do like a Ducati 1098 on the back ground though (left of the alleged M6). M6, on the other hand looks like the owner could barely afford it (hence the color), and then tried to make it look "cool". Should've put some undercarriage neons while he was "at it". Lol :-)

Ouch, that is harsh. It is an M6, it owned by a guy named Dan who is an engineer at Boeing, probably one of the nicest dudes out there. Always helpful on the M6 forum boards, he was instrumental in helping me with my audio upgrades the year before last. He loves mod's, he has pretty much converted every light on the interior of his car to LED so his affection for the LED lights is well documented. Here is a video of his Audio/Video Integration project, it shows the car including the lights.

Oh sh*t, I didn't mean to offend anyone! Just "trolling" a bit :-) no, im sure Dan is a great guy and all. I do like the audio/video integration, especially if he did it himself. Not a big fan of all kinds of "under artiste lights" and all. I do have led license plate lights on my car, but it makes it look classy. IMO adding all kinds of lights everywhere does not add class to the vehicle but takes it away. You know how some kids have windshield sprayers lit up and fake hood scoops and fender cutouts? Just makes me LOL

I'd be more enthusiastic if the color tone of the LEDs match the main headlights.

No worries, I stir the pot and troll at times also! He has done all the mod's himself. I read his original DIY thread a couple of weeks ago for this Hella light install, he even says that it won't be for everyone. Personally, I wouldn't do it either.

Windsheild wiper lights, that is funny.

Here are some pic's of another M6 with the LED light strip. I don't know who owns this since it is on a rim company website, but it is the best looking M6 I have ever seen. The professional photography probably helps.

This is one badass looking ride!!!!!

i agree with petro2r, i think it should either be one or the other, both is a bit much, but it's all about what you like

I agree that the strips don't look natural with the shape and contours of the car. They do look slapped on, but mostly because of how they are seated. It doesn't look like "part of the car". The car's elements are all curved. These are square. That's where the problem comes in with aesthetics.

Also, the bulbs themselves honestly don't look right to me, if you look close. They don't match the Audi LED's.

I love the idea of modding some LED's onto a sixer, and I wish there were other styles, shapes, and options to choose from because I'd do it in a heartbeat.
