E93 M3 MR/FR H&R Sport Springs w/ HRE 540R

I got the H&R sport springs installed friday and the wheels the week before. The car sits much lower than with the stock spring and looks 20 times better. The wheels are HRE 540R (F) 20x9 (R) 20x10.5 with Pzero tires.I took these pics with a low quality setting in the camara but I'll take some better ones next week out in the open when I install the Gruppe M intake and Rouge pulley.The Ericsson TI exhaust will be here around September by then Dainan should have a chip. I saw a Vorteiner front spoiler and rear diffuser in person and now I think I'm going to go with it. And the thats it....I'm done.

The wheel setup and drop is hot!

Are the wheels fully polished or chrome?

The wheels are chrome.

I know it looks tight in the back, I was suprised/worried how much lower the car looked as soon as the springs were installed.At the shop ,somebody pushed down on the rear and the wheel didnt touch the fender,but its close. If I went with 20x11 it would be rubbing

so there is still a chance it will rub under load?

I usually ride alone. but with a front passanger, and my 2yr old in the back and with the hard top in the trunk,it looks even lower but not by much. but in that set up, to be on the safe side when doing 80+ on the higway and on overpasses, i make sure I slow down a bit to be sure, just in case and even with that load is see no marks in the tire walls cuz when going over ramps the wheels are able to fit perfect under the rear fenders.this setup was comfirmed with HRE & H&R to make sure no issues could happen. Maybe with 4 grown men it might, but I dont plan to have 4 grown ass people riding at all in this car.Keep in mind that these springs were designed for an E92 not E93 so the rear should sit .2-.3 in lower vs E92 cuz of the E93 extra weight so i'm always a bit carfull at high speeds or coming out of parking lots if the car is loaded, but overall I have no regrets with this set up.. it rides perfect not problem yet and hopefully never. I think slammed3 has different wheels with the same dimession and spring ,he had no problems either.

FAP! Holy smokes that's hot. That drop might be a bit on the low side, but I dig it.

Oh and get some shadowline trim although the chrome trim matches your shoes.
