Why the door handles and gas tank cover are removed?

Don't lower it, the car looks perfect and what a great color. Congrats!

My 530i has Bilstein struts for lowering springs with Eibach Pro Kit. My favorite setup was my Ohlins Road and track coil-overs that I had on my custom 2013 Mini Cooper JCW Clubman that I just sold to get this car. Wife's order, you may know how that goes . Unfortunately at this time neither Ohlins or Bilstein offers a setup for the X-Drive M-Adaptive suspension, so I will have to wait and see if they plan to release something. I also have had KW V3 Coilovers on a custom Subaru Legacy and I wasn't impressed by their setup so I won't be throwing dollars KW's way. I want to lower the car but the M-Performance carbon fiber lips aren't cheap and the clearance is already cutting it close. We will see....

Man this is gorgeous... gives hope that the new M3 wont be hideous like it's leaks/renders.

Car also looks pretty low from front with the factory CF pieces!

Car looks fantastic. That wheel gap would haunt me personally and would force me to lower it even with the low front end.

Well deserved front page and you have now set the bar.... pretty damn high!

Only thing I'd change is the registration; Wish it was in my name 😆

Front license plates are for the wall in your garage.

I find that if I am pulled over and remain super chill I never have issues for running no front plate.

In NYC if you Street park without front plate you're most likely coming back with a ticket, they're quick too...

I disagree, I think the stock wheel gap is WAY too big.

Also, why do people automatically assume when someone says they might lower their car a bit that it will be slammed to the ground and look terrible? You can lower it an inch and keep it practical and classy.

Looks great!
Now all you need is that Alpina inside grill with the classic lines. Those diamonds things are not really suited for this car.

Enjoy it in good health!

Rear Diffusor kit

What Kind of rear Diffusor did you have (OEM part ?) and did you have to color it or was it painted from stock Level ? To use these not rounded exhaust pipes is it needed to also use this M Performance Main silencer ?
Many ?? Regards and thanks for giving Some Feedback 👍

Man the car looks good and lowering does not seem to be needed. Can you post your factory options, m-performance add-ons, and aftermarket mods - I m sure a lot of people will be interested in the list.
And again, don't lower it.
