Some recent mods on my E90M3 H&R

Here's a few shots of what i have done to my car lately. I got the AA exhaust and ECU Tune, as well as the filter installed two weeks ago at Active Autowerke. The 15mm Macht Schnell spacers i installed myself last week, and i also installed the H&R sport springs myself just last night. I also have tinted the car with 3M Color-stable ceramic tint, 35% on the sides, and 70% on the front.

AA Exhaust: i get so many compliments from everyone telling me that my car sounds like an exotic lambo or something driving by! This is an amazing exhaust, and when cruising on the highway there is absolutely no drone! the only drone i have noticed is around 1800RPM, and even then it's not very bothersome.

Springs and Spacers: i haven't had much time on the springs to tell if it handles any better, but the car does feel more planted and a bit less roll. i have EDC, so i decided to put on the springs while i save up for a set of KW Clubsport in the future. The rear does slightly rub on the TIP of the plastic part of the fenderwell. however VERY LITTLE! i can't fee; or hear the rubbing, i only noticed when i put my hand underneath. but i think it's just going to wear out the little plastic peice then it should be fine.

Pics!























here you can see the small plastic peice under the fenderwell that the tire rubs on










Thanks for looking,

Dom

Looking good! I am a little surprised you are rubbing with the spacer/spring combo however.

Looks great - are we using 15mm spacers on both front/rear?

Thanks

Thumbs up Beautiful E90 M3!

Perfect, clean and classy!
Probably the exact same mods I'll do when I get mine.

PS
Dom- you never got back to me about prices for those samples. lmk

Looks great. Are the pics of the front typical for H&R springs? I like the ride height in back, the front almost seems a bit higher than the back. Is that your impression?

This is exactly why I'm going with RD Sport springs. They drop the front .2 inches more compared to the H&R's. The RD's have the most evenly balanced look.

Still an AWESOME looking M3 regardless. I love the exhaust. The M3 looks much more better with springs + spacers.
