▀▄ eas | Lemans Blue e90 M3 ZCP (Springs, Spacers & Akra)

The owner of this beautiful 2011 e90 M3 was visiting Southern California from the San Francisco area and had scheduled to drop by our shop to get a set of springs and spacers installed. Once everything was finished he obviously loved the new aggressive stance, however it made the stock exhaust look even smaller and more out-of-place than before. Luckily we had the perfect remedy for the situation: the Akrapovic titanium slip-on exhaust.

We put the car back on the lift and in about another hour the exhaust was installed. Now the car was set-up how we think it should have been from the factory: a little bit lower, a little bit wider and a little bit louder.

Items installed:
Akrapovic Titanium Slip-On
Eibach Pro-Kit Spring Set
Macht Schnell 15mm Spacers (Front)
Macht Schnell 12mm Spacers (Rear)



Here's the car as it first came to us: 100% stock.








Spring and spacer installation:









After springs and spacers:
















Akrapovic Installation:

What impact does the aftermarket springs have on the EDC functionality?

Always amazed at how much more appropriately sized the stock 19's look when spacers get put on. Nice color, nice pics, looks gorgeous!!!
