The biggest difference I noticed right away was how much smoother the ride is with the 18s compared to the 19s. Barely notice road imperfections now but still try to avoid them like the plague. In any case, should be good when the white stuff starts falling along with the temps up here in the Great North.

Looks good. You could have run Apex ARC8 for less weight, but for the handling you get with snow wheels, weight is not a priority.

That suspension looks stock to me. I did mild lowering on my car with the regular H&R springs and you definitely notice the reduced ground clearance in adverse conditions. I run the same size snow wheels and tires and have to worry about frozen snow plow debris lines and so forth. I have damaged the plastic/felt tray under the front bumper lip already.

I know man, I kinda jumped the gun with the AG since I'm familiar with them from my Audi days and only now discovered APEX for the BMW world obviously. Price wise they're not too far apart and if I knew what I know now, I would have gone with APEX...even if they're for winter would have been nice to know they're light...
