Spent all day at Bimmer Performance Center watching Dan install the kit. Even helped a little here and there

My pictures are hardly instructional, more of like random shots. I apologize for that.

The kit:

Stock front with H&R lowering springs:

Stock rear with H&R lowering springs:

Work in progress:

These things are a bitch to put back right. A little bit of sticky tape to hold the washers on the inside of the under-tray help a lot:

Struts out:

Using spring compressor to remove old spring and mount new one onto the new assembly:

And back in:

Rear was a bit more pain. Dan had to loosen the exhaust so springs and stock shocks could be removed:

Rear spring assembly:

Cut dust covers:

Removed old springs/shocks:

And new stuff goes in:
