Therefore, to me it's a 'foul ball'.

Bring on a BBS FI or RI-D wheel onto this car and you'll see what I mean, not necessary 22 inch wheel.
Ditto. I think the 6 and especially the 6GC is distinctive in the BMW line up that warrants wheel designs that are not merely taken from the 1/3/5/7 series. I tried the Morr MS8s from my F10 on the 6GC (they don't fit). Even though I loved the MS8s on my F10, they just look very plain and tame on the 6GC.

I think BMW did it right (for the Hong Kong spec anyway) to put the new special star-poke on the 650i as standard. One of the few BMW OEM wheels that I liked. My shop called yesterday to ask me if I am willing to sell that set to a customer of theirs, and I told them HELL NO
