A clear profile shot after they settle would be nice.
I'm leaning towards the H&Rs myself.

Will take another clear profile shot tomorrow, but here's one from the shoot at a different angle.

Looks good. Just the right drop for my needs I think. Looking forward to more pictures. How's the ride?


OT: what fog bulbs [or lenses] do you have?

The fog len's are custom sized from lamin-x.com.
With exact measurements the car was lowered 1.75" all around which is with the n55 motor and all recommended factory tire pressures. Measurements were taken with an outdoor temperature of 67 degrees Fahrenheit as well.


Here is a profile shot!

Night and day difference way more responsive with cornering added a great level of stiffness to the suspension. Handles exactly how I hoped it would. Very satisfied

1.75'' looks good. 1 to 2'' would suit my conditions just fine. Looks like H&R for me also.
Can you tell me Wheel/Tyre set up even if it's standard and tyre pressures.

Would an alignment be advised with the drop springs? I know you said the handling has improved over the M-sport suspension, but did the comfort decrease noticeably?

You definitely need an alignment. Toe and camber will be off f/r.

This may be an extremely dumb question so please feel free to but what does installing these springs do to your warranty from BMW?

Any aftermarket modification that is potentially causal can result in denial of warranty. Basically, any problem with the suspension can refused to be covered under warranty. Powertrain, electrical, etc. not related in any way to the springs are still covered.
