As a big fan of frozen paint, I certainly have an easy task at hand today. European Auto Source is responsible for yet another stunning build that features a Frozen Black BMW M6. The stunning coupe received an abundance of high quality aftermarket additions perfecting the visual and performance appeal of this vehicle.

But the center piece of this project is a complete Akrapovic Titanium Evolution Exhaust System. Light, well made and sounding great. These are the traits one can use to describe this often used aftermarket performance upgrade. And you wouldn’t be wrong about either. The Evolution exhaust system made of Akrapovic proprietary titanium consists of newly developed dual-outlet mufflers with exhaust valves, flow-optimized pipes, and a unique cast titanium X-shaped part with resonators.

Improving the sound coming out of the quad exhaust pipes is only part of the equation here. It weighs 10.5 kilograms or 23.15 lbs lighter than the stock system, for example. It also provides a healthy increase in power. Owners will receive around 7.4kW more compared to the stock system, while the torque is increased 17.0Nm.

Yes, price tag can be shocking, but I believe it’s well worth it.

Moving on to the exterior mods. The most prominent addition are the BBS FI wheels. We have seen these wheel being the BMW fan favorites, despite the high price. The BBS wheels bring great improvements in weight reduction, performance and visual aspects as well.

A complete set of BBS FI wheels for a this BMW M6 costs $7,995.00. But if you are looking at the fact these are some of the lightest wheels around, providing excellent structural strength – the option is worth it. The BBS FI is a one-piece forged aluminum wheel designed and produced in the Motorsports department. As the flagship wheel in the BBS line-up, the FI is ultra-light, ultra strong and does a great job of showing off the aftermarket brakes. And with the ceramic brakes option on this M6, they looks simply gorgeous!

In order to proper fit the car’s looks, the M6 Coupe had to be lowered. This was accomplished thanks to the KW Suspension Variante 3 Coilovers. This system provides a lot of upsides, like the independently adjustable damping technology – rebound and compression damping, a complete “inox-line” stainless steel technology, individual height adjustment, German TUV- tested adjustment parameters, high-quality components for long life, comprehensive documentation for ease of use, infinitely adjustable rebound damping, a 14- level adjustable compression damping and a unique, independently functioning damping power adjustment.

To complete the wheel and suspension combination, another performance part was installed. The Macht Schnell competition stud conversion kit and wheel spacers (20mm Rear) provide the pinpoint adjustment and improved looks.

Finally the long list of visual mods ends with the Arkym AeroSport carbon fiber front lip spoiler, carbon fiber rear diffuser, carbon fiber side skirts and carbon fiber trunk spoiler,  iND painted front reflectors, iND painted side marker gills and iND painted trunk badge as well.

From the BMW M Performance Parts catalog, the M6 Coupe gets the BMW Performance gloss black kidney grilles added.
