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.

License Plate Lights

Well I pulled the trigger on some cheap license plate LED lights
$7.45 on sale for 4.99 (free shipping) on eBay. LED type replacement.
Said it was replacement for my 06 650. They worked fine, not to bright.

Only thing is they will make your car fault on the plate lights so don't do it...

Spend a little extra and get the fault free ones that e92 lighting sells... Feels weird to cheap out on your $75k+ car...

Soldering in a resistor in parallel with the LED set in your existing lamps. That will prevent the error warning being thrown up. Try 10 Ohms or 100 Ohms & see how you get on.

Got mine from Umnitza and they are bright and did not show error. Three times what you paid.
