Best shop/dealership for lowered Ms

I'm planning on getting a KW sleeve kit and dropping the car pretty low. I will also be getting a challenge front lip which will definitely make it that much lower in the front.

I've only taken my car to get serviced at The new VOB in Rockville and im hoping I can still take it there even after the drop. Does anyone know if they still service lowered cars? If not, what dealerships in the area do you trust with your lowered beauty?

On a side note I'm no longer under warranty so a good Indy shop that will watch out for my drop/lip and provide me with service at a reasonable rate are always welcome. Thank you.

RRT in Sterling, VA is where I would go for most things (their shop is incredible). IMA motorsports and Mach V also in Sterling are some other good shops in Northern VA area I've had good experiences with.

My car's lowered too and I had my cf front smashed up by an area BMW dealership last summer--thankfully they promptly got me a replacement but still not excited to take my car back there.

I have never heard of BMWExclusiveservice. Are their prices reasonable? Whats your experience if you dont mind me asking.

I wouldn't mind heading to VA but I rather stay as local as possible, time being atleast.

They have been around for many years and are owned by BMW enthusiasts. Not sure what their pricing is currently, but will definitely be cheaper than any dealer. I've held many events there and they are big on the Bimmer Alliance FB page. Very knowledgeable and honest.

Why would you destroy a 65K machine of this caliber by dumping it beyond 2'' lol ?

But hey that is the trend these days and maybe a set of stretched tires is next for you.

Destroying 1k + front lips are fun 2.

If you are looking for a finger gap all the way around you should be fine...depending on your wheel size. Adding a challange front lip is not a good idea. You will crack that in the first week. My car is lowered on KW sleeve kit and I shattered my Challange lip. Go for the mode carbon lip. I dont scratch at all.
