At first, I thought you had gotten yourself a Gran Coupe! The car looks fantastic! Have fun on your date!

I've been watching that show The Mentalist. Lets try something:

Look at the shiny coin in my hand. Watch it spin. Let yourself relax. Just relax and watch it spin. When I snap my fingers you will feel an overwheling desire to put aftermarket wheels on your 6. Snap!



Did it work?

Sorry Ice, no. I'm too much a purist.

Although if the right wheels came along AND they supported roundels I'd reconsider.

Sometimes stock wheels just don't do a car justice, but that's not the case this time I think.

The stockers do look nice. My issue is their size. The 6 is 192 inches long. Biggest sport/luxury coupe on the planet. The stock wheels, although nice are just too puny. The car needs at least 21's to fulfill its potential. Yes, this is my opinion but what can you expect from a wheel lover.

Looks great, as usual

Glad to see yours gleaming. Mine was until a little birdie paid me a visit

I'm glad I just waxed it...

This very vehicle is one of the first I saw while lurking here--waiting for mine to build/ship.

It's also the cause (again, while waiting on delivery) for waking panicked (not once, but twice) 'round 3-4am wondering (more like obsessing) if my CB choice was the right one and wishing I'd gone w. white...

Looking as good as ever!
Hope the date was good times!

Glad you like. The date was awesome as always - Friday was Greg Berhendt at the Improv and Sat was a Texas Hold'em Fundraiser. What a great weekend!
