My springs are on!!

Here is my E90 before and after install along with a few other pics. I've got a few other things in store for it this week. Namely the Active AutoWerke Pulley and a few matte black items and some wheel spacers that are on order.

Looks fantastic!

What kind of drop did you get and what model springs did you put on?

more pics

I have driven it now for about 100 miles since the drop and will continue to do so for a few more days before I have alignment done. Here is the most recent pics taken about 20min ago. I did the H&R springs and notice about 1.2 up front and .80 out back. I think maybe it will settle a little more so I will measure again in a few days. Next is matte black kidney, grill, roundels, wheel and steering wheel decals as well as matte black badging with monochrome all the way around. I have a AA Pulley going on later this week and AA-SSK. Lastly what size spacer would you guys reccomend. I am thinking 15mm front 12mm back.

Looks great! Have you experienced any scraping yet? I have a set of H&R springs just sitting in my garage and I am somewhat loathe to put them on based on the amount of scraping I am likely to do. Thoughts anyone?

^ Nothing like food and beer for work .

The M is looking good btw the way, I'd suggest waiting to get the spacers on if its within a two week period then getting the alignment done.

Get the spacers on first, drive around for a bit, then get an alignment.

Why have you narrowed it down to Macht Schnell? Why not H&R?

I have read alot of great things on the Macht Schnell but not much on H&R. I know the springs are great since I have them on my car. But not much info on spacers. Also it looks like the bolts come in the dark finish already.
