All I gotta say is...WOW!!! That's a hot ride! What kind of suspension setup is he running? Nice wheels! Are those 19" or 20" wheels. What's the weight of the wheels?

Thanks man!!
Im riding on H&R Sport Springs (that were meant for an E92 but they work just great on the E93).
20" Spec 5ive wheels, they are super light for 20" wheels - around 22 lbs per wheel.

Looks good but I see no point in slamming an M3, reduces the performance of a factory masterpiece

nope, no clearance issues!
Why do people even think its that low? Its only H&R Sport (they dont even make their more aggresive drop known as the H&R RACE.

When you have O-ring like tires and only part of the tire is visible at the top of the rear wheel arch that is LOW!

I have H&R springs on my M3 and do find the black undertray touches humps occasionally, just checking if this is no worse with the front lip ?

+1 (just an opinion)

But I love the fact that you blacked out the chrome trim around the windows.
