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.

Mein Auto: Black Sapphire BMW Z4 3L
Even when I had runflats, I had a wheel come loose (front wheel) because the bolts had not been tightened correctly, a really scary moment, but when I realised what was wrong there was no wheel brace or socket even to re-tighten, had to call a breakdown truck who once we realised what was wrong could not believe it.
So I now carry a wheel brace and socket in every car I drive, and have developed a real phobia about correctly torquing a wheel bolt !!!!

PPS, the reason the bolt became loose was a combination of incorrectly torqued and the fact that the wheel had just been professionally refurbished and the paint had also covered the face on the wheel which bolt face connects with, talk about lesson's learned
