Got it, again, springs work great, few other things on the way. Lets see if I can get home early enough today so that I can get a few nice pics of the car in daylight and post them.

Ride is a bit rougher but nothing we can’t stand. It is actually still more compliant than the E46 stock!! I find that amazing even when I use the hardest EDC setting!!!!! Plus there is also that slight gain in performance. I’m very pleased with them!

Oh, and that is with the 20" wheels and such!!! This is a larger vehicle than the E46 so that a 20" wheel is like a 19" on the prior model.

Maybe you stated this earlier, but give us the exact springs specs/part numbers. Amount of lowering? Beuatiful wheels, but stay away from curbs!

Thanks. Looks much better.

These are the Breyton E92 M3 lowering springs specifically made for this vehicle (they are not the springs that go on the 335, these will simply NOT fit the M3). Amount of lowering is 2.5cm in front and 2cm in the rear!! I’ll look into all the specs etc… and verify these ASAP.
And I do stay away from curbs, these wheels are HUGELY delicate!!!! I’ve had these types for years and spend quite a bit of $$$ fixing them.

Hahahaha!!! You’re welcome to come down any time my friend. Hope you get your car soon and we can all share pics, would love to see the extended FR interior. I was not aware that the parking distance control was not available in the US. Why is this? It’s really a great gadget particularly for parking etc… We in fact don’t have any options; we get the “whole enchilada” so to speak. Hahaha!! That is, parking gadgets, premium sound, NAV, blue tooth and phone, CF leather, 19” wheels, CF roof, rear window sun shade, EDC, technology package, etc… but we also pay more taxes than in the USA. We pay similar prices to Europe!

Wow your taxes are the same as Europe? Um I think Im going to think twice on buying mine down there! LOL!!! I SOOO want the front PDC and I really dont know why we dont get it in the states. Its really fucked up! Does anyone know why? I wouldnt mind getting the Euro Bumper when I have my car (and if I can do it and if Im crazy enough to do it) I would want to get it with the Front PDC and put on Front PDC myself or at dealer (if possible lol)! But thats if I get crazy enough to do it and if its possible for me to do it... LOL...

Yep, taxes on a car run at about 26.5% over MSRP + 5% per year for tags. So, lots of taxes!!!

The car exhibits understeer at the limit even on the stock 18s, unless purposely you enduce oversteer.

Most have said it is pretty neutral with much less understeer than the E46. Increasing the stagger difference will accentuate any there is, though.

Nice pics! The springs make the car look a lot meaner, I like the look. What do you plan for your next mods? I think a set of Brembo or stoptech big brakes would look amazing behind those 20's.
