E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
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.

I Put a set of H&R's as well as Billstein Sports, made the car's stance very aggressive. looking at the car alone, not really apparent, however looking at the car when around other 6'ers and it's obvious, and very sexy! The ride is noticeably harsher though, but it softened up after about 2-3 weeks. I LOVE IT!!!

I'm debating Bilstein Sport or HD...

Im on Eibachs with stock springs and the ride is very smooth not sure if the sports will dramatically change the ride quality.

i'd also like to see a good profile shot of a car dropped on springs. It's hard to find pix.
