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.

E63 Brake Rotors

Changing the fron rotors on my 645. I came across EBC 3GD SPORT DIMPLED AND SLOTTED BRAKE ROTORS, VENTED, GOLD ZINC, SET for about $350 shipped. Does anyone have any experience with them? Good idea...bad idea?

I just replaced my rears. I am waiting for the front pads to arrive to change the fronts. Look great. I did not hear any noise until I changed out the stock wheels. Now between 20-40 MPH I can hear some whoosh noise form them, which I heard was to be expected. They look amazing! The gold color wears off immediately from the rotor surface (which I was happy about).

Rotora has black carbon rotors...looks great when installed coz it kinda resembles the PCCB from the Porkers...but wears off immediately after use...which is a bummer.
