Perhaps a silly question - what did you do with the original wheels/tires?

I blacked out tail lights, Alphine White and Black powdered coated Vellano wheels. I changed out the Badges out with a Black and white. I also highlighted the word Alpina on my front spoiler. I like better than my M6

I like your other pictures better. Can't say why exactly...just something about them.

I can't decide what's hotter...her or the B7?

Did you get a 2013 M6 as well?

If it's all good, nice toys!

Nice! I still wish Alpina would use something closer to the M body kit as the base for the 7er... though.

I can't remember where, but I remember seeing pictures of your M6 when you just picked it up. Those wheels look REALLY good IMO.

My new 2013 Alpina B7

Love the cars!! I would have chosen a different set of aftermarket wheels for the alpina but most probably left the stock 21s alpina wheels on. I agree with db750 on the m6 wheels but I highly doubt you are able to drive the way a m6 the way it's supposed to driven! See the Texas plates on the jag, what city??

When I first got the M6 back in November I joined this Forum and posted some pics. I tried to log in a couple or days a go and my account was deleted. I guess for no activity. So I had to start over. Believe it or not the diffrence is minimal from the stock wheels to the 22". With the power it puts out you can't tell a diffrence. At least I can't !!! The m6 was in the shop for the first two months waiting on oil pump recall. We are in Conroe out by the Lake. I see your in Houston . What part?
