Yeah, cleaning them would be a b*tch. I really love them. Even though they are similar to the stock ones on the SL 55 AMG... i just can't stop looking at those damn pictures

The silver one is an M6. The other is Hamann body kit. The front is the competition spoiler. They have a 'non-competitive' front spoiler which looks better, in my opinion.

I kinda like how my 6er looks, even though it looks like a bloated pontiac.

These days, I'm thinking my car is just too big and at the right angles looks too 'boaty'. Then Cadillac springs into mind, but only for a fraction of a second.

I'm with u there. I think the lighter colors can get away with "busy" wheels, one reason I have considered the BMW 101 style. Black and the dark blues seem to do better with the 5 / 7 spoke type. Even black spoke, stainless rim/lip do well on Black 6ers.

crack dealer?

boy, this is a conservative crew...

do a euro tuning to your 6 and you look like a crack dealer?

Some times bmw gets it right sometimes they dont but you cant actually tell me an OEM m6 body and these wheels (Alpina influenced, non chrome) look like a crack dealer can you?

I mean to my eye, nothings spinning, nothings blinging, nothings oversized, nothings too ornate, nothings too American looking etc.

Its a euro tuner wheel on a euro GT....WHATS THE PROBLEM?

Yes you may. I will give you a hint. Look at my sig (below). I bought the 3.0CS when I was 27.

I also don't like tatoos or piercings. I think of them as low class and And most non-OEM ornamentation is just to me.

When I took my almost 9 yesar old daughter to the movies yesterday (to see Yours, Mine and Ours - the new one, not the 1968 Lucille Ball - Henry Fonda send up), I bought her a kid's ticket and I got in as a senior. So, I will admit it. I am a fuddy-duddy. How old are you?

My dealership and probably you guys know about it too has this Acid Free Rim Cleaner that they sell from BMW which does a pretty good job of cleaning my M rims. . . and also my 19"s on my pops cars.....as long as you clean them every week or two with a soft foam piece and some water you are chillin~

dont bother

Its crazy, some guys just get stuck in their old honory ways.

You'd like to think that after so many yeas on this earth one would become more independant and not let BMW dictate what looks good and what doesnt.

As I get older and start to appreciate more, I can deviate from what a company spoon feeds me and start to decide for myself what works instead of letting big brother tell me.

I dont know what he means by pimp whether thats racial, class system or what but I've seen nice cars done by all races. Taste crosses all racial lines and I've seen all races screw up otherwise nice cars so...I'm not sure where he's going with the repetitive " " remarks.

But you know what...

I got a good taste of what middle America is like when they voted Bush in the second time.

This country is at it's worst right now and it's clear Bush is the worst prez since Nixon if not worse, Yet republican conservatives can still justify him as well as apardheid for that matter....

Nothing suprises me anymore.

He prolly the type that locks the kids in the room and peers out his window with his .38 everytime a loud car stereo drives by.

Without getting too politically deep, notice how conservative thinking people sit idly by when things are circling the drain?

liberal thinkers are always in activist mode when things are bad for people...pushing big brothers limitations.

that traslates perfectly to conservative thinking in terms of ...car mods for instance...big govt and big business is always right......Thinking outside the box is a bad thing....
