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.

Mein Auto: BMW 645Ci E63
19" with lowering springs or 20" with adjustable absorbers?

Hi guys, I just had my 2005 645ci 2 months ago and thinking of spicing up its looks. As you can see, it has the optional Ellipsoid styling 121 19" rims with Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tyre.

Was thinking of making it more 'aggressive' by fitting a Lumma Bodykit (Front bumper, rear bumper, side skirts). However, I'm contemplating on whether to change my rims to Breyton GTS 19" rims with lowering springs to give it a more aggressive look or 20" with adjustable absorbers (I have yet to determine which brand). The car already has a Supersprint quad exhaust system fitted to it and it sounds great.

I use the car to commute to work and I'm from Kuala Lumpur. With about 20% of the roads full of potholes and manhole covers, which options should I go with. To give an idea of how the roads are, I've driven in Central London, England, and some of the roads are almost the same.

Should I stick with 19" and reuse my tyre or go with 20" and risk bent rims and punctured tyres?
Sorry for the bad english.
