Thumbs up OEM+ E90 M3

OEM 220s with 15(f)/12.5(r) spacers and a Swift drop. Back to basics.

I know what you mean, I've been tempted to get Blackline inners (only) - Every so often I can find a set on eBay that someone's parted out/split up. Not a big fan of going full Blackline. It's either that or get the MARS CIC-look LED tails for $350 which I've seen look quite good. Next on the agenda is a re-tint with 50% all-around w/ full windshield. Keeping it classy

Side bar: does my hood sit lower than it should? Seems the gap between the hood and bumper is spot-on, but you can tell it sits just slightly lower than the fenders when looking at the over hang on the headlamps. Is everyone's like that or...? Not sure how to adjust that.

It does look like the hood isn't aligned with fenders. I've had trouble aligning mine perfectly as well and the gap between the kidneys and hood is larger than i've seen w/ some other cars, but the fenders match the hood.

Your car looks great! Are you running factory size tires? Any rubbing?

Looks killer, just the motivation I needed to stay after work today and get my Swift springs installed on my E90.

Stock is way to go for M3s in my opinion...

OEM+ is always such a great/mature look.

Hell yea bro - get to it! The drop couldn't be more ideal with the Swifts. All-around very happy with the new setup.

I have swift springs installed as well on my car but the drop I have is a little more in the rear than yours. Is there anything you did to have that perfect look?

I just installed the Swift springs last night and my drop is no where near the drop pictures above. I've got about 60 miles on the car now and it's still much higher than that. WTF.

OP does the rear not rub? I too lowered my car on swifts and when I installed 12.5mm spacers on the rear they rubbed like a mofo. from my research it shouldn't but on my car it does.
