The M Sport Package must be optioned with the 20" Wheels in order to get the LED Headlights. If you do not get the M Sport; you must get the 20" Wheel Upgrade in order to get the LED Headlights for the 2012. For 2013, BMW now made the LED lights a stand alone option so no 20" Wheels are required.

Ugly car IMO. Yellow does NOT go well with the soft top. This color would look 100% better on a Z4 vert. It looks bad on a car as big as the six series.

Exactly, he already saved on down payment a huge amount. And anytime during the lease or at end of it he'll just buy it for a similar payment.

Awesome body color, dear god why on the rims.

Related: Who are these owners talking too at BMW that are providing colors like this on the car? I would like to know for future M purchases.

you're mistaking the LED angel eyes with FULL LED HEADLIGHTS which only the 6 series currently has and makes the car look 10008439084934 times better, i still don't understand why would they offer 6 with out it, anyway im too lazy to post picture to show you an example

I'm more speaking of the tail lights. Are the tails on the newer cars LED? The new F30's aren't. That wont happen until the LCI update. Retarded.

Best-looking 6-Series ever seen at the moment. That Atacama Yellow goes so well with it. I never imagined a 6-Series would look so good at it bar the yellow rims.

OP, as a few have correctly mentioned, please remove your CUSTOMER'S vin from your post. You seem to do good work but I would be furious if someone did this to me and mocked my car publicly after earning my business.

Not in love with Atacama Yellow on the 6. It'll blend in with all the cabs in NY.

BARF...

the rims, of course, are beyond horrid. but i don't like the body color either. agree about the NYC taxi color. i mean this isn't a lambo, which is about the only car that could pull that color off.

You're not alone. I'm never a fan for black wheels. For a very long time, black rims used to be considered gangsters/mafia look 5-10 years ago. Even though times have changed and it is getting pretty popular these days, it does not change my view.

Although the original yellow rims may not be the best choice to match the body, it looks ok and better than black. Yellow rims are found on Porsche.

Last but not least, this Atacama Yellow on a 6er does not appeal to me. I ain't any American with grudges on yellow due to its connection to taxi in yellow. It just fails to lift up the elegance of a big 6er.

I think if you want to protect your business you probably shouldn't judge the customer's decisions. Yikes, if I was on this forum and saw this at the least my feelings would be hurt and at most, I would be angry.
