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.

Yea I have a neat little custom wheel calculator where it tells you all oem wheel specs and then it spit out the custom wheel specs and tire size if youíre changing sizes. I went from 19Ē to 20Ē and it said et 20 on that computer and I bought used and they were on a 535 2007. I needed .59Ē spacers for the front cuz they were hitting by a hair but with those rubber bands around the wheel it doesnít ride as good. And when I let my car idle for 10-15mins then press on gas a ploom of bluish grey smoke comes pooping out. Then stops completely m. I hope itís cheap and great job on all the info and videos. Thereís nothing about us 6 series guys anywhere

Hope you find the info useful, I keep adding bits as I come across them but it's all turned into a bit of a beast hence most of it is now in PDF form.

Dude thanks so much! Youíre a wealth of knowledge. I usually buy German off the first 3 year lease and keep the car for 3 years and at least get what itís worth but most of the time I get slightly under what I paid. My car is garages kept, looks exactly the same when I bought it which is showroom. It has every extra package and itís worth 15-17k tops? Most people think itís worth 60-70k! One guy didnít even believe it was a BMW. I love the way the car handles and performs though and donít want to get rid of it. All my buddies buy mustangs and put 5-10k into them to drag in a straight line. What is fun about that?!? Now taking the 650 over the mountain into the country taking turns and feeling the Gís thatís fun. But Iím a pilot too. So I love my Gís! I even love to just cruise long distances because itís comfortable. Although I go from Washington DC to Harrisburg in 45 mins when it should take twice that. Lol

If this is regarding the smoke then you'll be fine to drive it, just check those CCV's + associated pipe work and check for any oil or vacuum leaks first before assuming valve stem seals, if all that checks out then you may well be looking at the valve stem seal job but even this can be staved off for a while at least by going to a slightly thicker grade oil, if your Kingston UK just make sure you keep to BMW LL04, if Kingston USA then LL01 .
