My E92 M3 with mods, inc HRE, H&S, Eibach...

Pretty much completed my car and cleaned it up. Mods include:
  • Eibach springs on the front only, with E36 bump stops and shaved mounts
  • Hayward and Scott back boxes
  • Front lip sprayed matt black
  • Wing mirror caps sprayed matt black
  • Bonnet vents, top and side, matt black
  • Black bonnet and boot badges
  • Matt black M3 badge
  • HRE P43 20s
Very happy with the results

And I have two rear diffusers of which one will probably go on at some point when I get the chance to fit it properly.

P43s look great!

What rear diffuser are you going to run?

Rich that looks tight man. I am more in favor of the Anthracite-colored wheels then just going black.
Good choice bud.

Nice HRE's! Different springs front and rear can't make for a very well matched suspension.

What lip is that?
Looks great, but not sure about using the Eibach's only in front.

A valid point but one I looked into before doing it. I can't go too low on the car as a result of road humps in the UK and my lip which even now gets occasionally catches the road if I go to quickly over them. I wanted the car to be dropped evenly front and rear. If I had also fitted the rear springs I would have maintained the rear heavy OEM stance.

The lowering is slight, 1/2" or so. Because the springs retain a very OEM feel and by maintaining the same suspension travel with the shaved mounts and E36 stops you can't tell any difference in ride quality. I also had the car on a handling day at an air field a couple of weeks ago, this involved controlling 80mph slides amongst other things and the car was fantastically balanced - as it was on a similar day before swapping them - so there is no change obvious to me as a result of the front only springs.
