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.

Nice and clean, although I somehow don't like the idea of having the BMW roundel on the wheels, better have the original caps on. Gene why not disable those orange DRLs in the front, and maybe have the OEM color AE's back ? IMO would look even cleaner

I did the roundel's because I felt the center of the wheel looked too plain with the Radenergie caps. I'm not too bothered by the orange lenses. I also prefer the AIB's over the drab OEM angel eyes.

Just got the 20" chrome M6 wheels put on last week (I drive 130mph to work everyday, 20" is big enough). Tint job was done in May. I'm thinking about taking it to the local AC Schnitzer dealer to get it lowered a couple of inches. Whatcha think?......

Looks nice. I love the tinting. Lowering it would make it look even better.

I was gonna get the same wheels (Quattro's) but wasn't too sure how it would look.But it deff. look's good!! Did Sevas give you the right wheel offset because the rear's look like it would rub bad if you had the car lowered?

I can't lie, I was a bit skeptikal at first as well but now that I own them I have to say that it definitely looks better in person than online (which is a good thing for me, bad thing for their marketing). Maybe my pics just came out better? LOL. I have gotten nothing but compliments and questions about the rims. Definitely a unique wheel on the 6 (as opposed to Ashantis) and conversation piece.

Anyways, as good as they look, I did have my share of issues with them at first. Let me start with the wait time..........*whistling*........*whistling*....ge t my drift? 4 months it took for these wheels to arrive! I was told 8 weeks. Sevas gave me a check for some $$ back for the wait. Rubbing was an issue on the backs whenever I hit a bump. I had my local rim/tire shop (Cross Island Tire & Wheel) roll the inside back fenders back a bit. No rubbing since and no cracks in the paint from the rollback. My car is not lowered, nor do I plan to. NYC roads are a b!tch as is, no need to piss my Blanca off any further! Hope this helps!

Wow after 4 months of waiting,and Sevas didn't make you the correct offset for your car? I would be pissed as hell! If your car rubs at stock height,lowering your car will be impossible.

Pissed is not the correct word to describe how i was when I was experiencing these issues (yes there were more issues that i didn't mention in previous post) Now that everything is corrected, I'm just happy that they got here in time for summer since I didn't plan to slap them on till now anyways. Beautiful wheel, but Sevas has some serious issues when it comes to service. I have to say thank you to Derrick at D2Autosport for getting everything straight for me.
