H&R Lowering Springs/Spacers on M340Xi w/Adaptive Suspension

Just installed the H&R Springs and 12mm Spacers front and rear. Initial drive experience...In ECO Mode the ride feels like my Sport Individual Settings. In Sport Individual Mode it feels track ready. 12mm Spacers make the wheel/tires flush with the fender wells.Front end is low so I have reached out to Scrape Armor for them to make their product for those of us who have lowered G20's. Next up...New Wheels!

That's the perfect look! My dinan springs have been collecting dust for about 2 months now. This is some motivation to get'em installed.

That's a nice shop too...and some Lambos in the background.

@ M340_Pilot... I'm glad you are inspired. I actually had to wait about 3 weeks because our shop was very busy towards the end of last month, events, track day, etc. The wait was worse when it took a while for a company to make the springs for the XDrive/Adaptive Opt.

Looking really good! I'm personally waiting on Dinan to release their springs for the 330i xDrive with the same spec spacers. But the H&R setup is looking flames.

The front end doesn't look too low off the ground, do you think the Scrape Armor is absolutely necessary? Do you find yourself driving into speed bumps and driveways at an angle to avoid scrapping/bottoming out? Looks like it would be fine, I can see adding a front lip at this height would require more maneuvering to avoid scrapping.

@ jeegunkim So far I don't have to maneuver over speed bumps or deal with scraping driveways...I'm surprised!

Good to know! I'm considering the H&R but originally was waiting for Dinan to release their springs with the Supplemental Ride Quality & Handling Kit. Still on the fence....
