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.

What do you guys think of the Racing Dynamics front bumper?

Look at the red car and scroll down.

Mein Auto:
I like everything about the front except those two extra round inlets. As for the rear, the exhaust pipes look a little like Yardie's. They stick out an awful lot and the 650i now has tapered ends. So they are a bit obtrusive.

However, I like the engine and the power. How much will that set someone back?

Yeah, well check out the torque too on that engine. It's more than an M6.

I really like RD's stuff. It's always function first, with understated design to follow. The extra round inlets are actually dedicated ducts to increase the air flow that cools the brake pads. Plus, the front bumpers add more downforce too. The rear has a duct for the differential oil coolers. I'm not quite sure about the mufflers sticking out that much, it doesn't stick out anymore than my stock 6.

The engine upgrade will cost you at least $20k.

Haha. I think it's important on the 6 to keep from mixing it up to the point where it loses its distinct design. The roofline on the car is distinct and some kits make the 6 look like a 5 or 7. If I wanted that, I would just get that. I think the 6 doesn't have the sharkfin for a reason.

What I thing about Wald

I photoshoped the Wald photo. I would like to see the area around the fog lights, completely smoothed out, easier to clean and plus a cleaner look. What do you think? I am 3 weeks away from a silver cab and am still debating the addition of an aerodynamic treatment. So far I prefer a simple RD sport.
