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.

Brake duct suicide

I just got home from a Blue Highways trip from Tulsa to Longmont, CO. The High Plains are a great place to test the speed limiter.

This photo shows what happened to a Grasshopper who flew into my brake duct at 135.

The bird only stayed in the grill for a few moments - then rolled up the hood and over the windshield. That got my attention.
The grasshoppers in the grill didn't impress me either, but the one inside the wheel was the first time I've seen that.
