6 Series
The 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.

FU*&^in Lock nuts!!!!!!!!!

well i am trying to remove the lock nuts on my car cause when i bought it it din't come with the lock key.
I watched several videos on different ways to do it,first was to hammer a slightly bigger the the nut,THAT didn't even come close to helping.
I am trying to drill thru the center and can't cause the steel is so hard it burns the bits.
I bought a kit of sockets that supposed to grab stripped nuts from princess auto and that didn't work.
My last resort is a set of sockets on ebay that looks like they might do.
I am willing to try anything if you guys have a special trick if not i will post results when i get this socket kit.
or if someone has a set that i could borrow or buy that would be quicker than ebay

Are you sure the key is not in the trunk in the tray? That's where most people keep it.

If you can't find it, I would call a local tire guy. They must come across this from time to time.
