two quick questions for you.

1) is it hard to see the tips given that they're black and so is your diffuser? would be cool to see a slightly closer shot of the entire rear end of your car.

2) what's the name of your front lip? for the life of me i can't remember. bmw oem i believe, right?

- esquire
Infamous is correct the lip is a JL Motoring GTS Style lip.

It's a temporary solution for right now until I can get the GTS lip from a vendor here.

It's not very hard to see the tips, I will post another close up picture of the rear soon.

Photo #5 is the money shot, it's hard to imagine how you could improve the stance of a E92

The RD Sport lowering springs compared to stock is like using the sport plus mode on the EDC but it is turned off.

It would be stiffer and bouncy when you activate the sport plus mode on the EDC.

Overall the ride quality is not that bad when you are just cruising around town.

You used 15mm spacers in the back with 275/30/19 tires? What about the front..

INSANE car, nicely done.

No spacers on the front.

I am running a 19X10 +25 wheels on the front wrapped in Nitto NT05 275/30/19 no rubbing.


On the rear I am running a 19X10 +10 same tires

Archiebabes--the car looks AMAZING. It's also giving me a great look at what my car might look like with a CF rear diffuser and the Akrapovic CF tips...

Not sure but I think it would be more sick if there were carbon wrapped mirrors. Jus my personal opinion. But damn it still look sick!! The color contrast, superb! Great job!

Love it man looks so sick. Akra exhaust is out of this world nice and those wheels look a million times better than the last ones IMHO.
