Thanks man! They were actually taken in Milpitas off of McCarthy Ranch and in Fremont by Dumbarton Bridge.

For the price most folks may want to go this route VS full suspension..
I agree, the spacers made a huge difference in the final outcome...and this is the best option IMO vs going full coilovers.

car sits really nice
I can't say as I haven't ridden in an E9X M3 with that application. Maybe someone with experience in both can chime in here...

Going to the 19×11's it rubs just a bit, not enough to create much of problem, but I would really appreciate that adjustability right now,
Thanks dude! I'm currently running 19x11 et25 with a 5mm spacers in the rears with zero rubbing at all. May have to do in big part to the tires I chose...Hankook Ventus V12 Evo 275/35, it's a very mild stretch. Still very meaty.

I honestly can't give you a good answer to that. I installed this suspension 1 month after I purchased the car. Within that one month I haven't driven the car spiritedly enough on the stock suspension to make a comparison. With this current setup however, I have driven hard on it a few complaints with the handling thus far.
