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.

My '07 650i with 21" Alpina B7 Slippers

Hey guys,
I finally had a chance to take a few pics of the new wheels on my car. These are off the newest version of the B7.
They're 21x10's (41 offset) with 295/25/21 in the back and
21x8.5's (25mm offset) with 255/30/21 in the front. I have 18mm spacers in the back and 15mm spacers in the front from Burger Tuning. The TPMSensors came from Tirerack (great deal and same brand BMW uses) and I only needed the actual sensors because the wheels have the valve stems and holders built into the actual rim. The car is lowered with H&R springs and there is no rub!! Fronts turn free no problem and the ride is super smooth. Just a little paranoid now about potholes and ditch-like sewer caps...

I found it very difficult to find sound advice from any wheel/tire guys up here as to whether these would fit, etc. If they sense they can't make money off of you then all of a sudden they don't know what wheels and tires are. So checkout www.willtheyfit.com. Major lifesaver! You type in all the stats for your current wheels, offsets, and tires and also the new proposed setup and it will show you everything you would need to know to determine whether they will fit.

Decided to try out one of the DIY Air Scoops to compliment the AFE Intake. Fairly easy, the mounting was a little bit wacky but managed to get it fitted after a bunch of test fitting and trimming and beer breaks as well as dedicated swear word breaks. But it is much more satisfying making it yourself then paying RPI a $100. The sound is unreal from the intake, and combined with the full resonator delete with x-pipe, there is no need for muffler upgrades. Sounds insane.

Anywho, thought I would share my latest stuff.
Take care
