Static is for AM Radio.

No. That is not my ride height.

Yes. It rides just as good as OEM and better than my old KW HAS. The handling and comfort has taken NO sacrifice.

No. I do not track the car.

Yes. The installation is safe and the product is amazing. No leaks!




















This is the direction I wanted to go in with this car. The mileage on it is EXTREMELY low for an 08, and I want to keep it pristine. The whole Air Lift kit is 100% bolt-on. I drilled ONE small hole in an area that will never be seen and coated and grommeted it as to not have ANY rust spread.

If the E92 value ever finds itself in the unlikely position of skyrocketing prices, it can go back to OEM in a second...

Not to mention, the system handles rough NY roads and driveways beautifully.

Go ahead and opine, though. I know you will, and wholeheartedly appreciate any and all feedback, knowing that at the end of the day, it makes me happy.


As for a modification list:

Air Lift Performance 3P Kit. The kit consists of front/rear shocks and air "springs" with 32-point adjustable damping all the way around, control arms, 3P management, 4 gallon tank, 480cc single compressor,etc etc.

Rotiform CHD 3 piece wheels on Nitto Invo Tires. Double stepped 4" polished lip, 1/2 hidden hardware, face-to-lip hand-brushed DEEP concave aluminum spokes to clear the:

Brembo BBK

Eisenmann Race Exhaust

Active Autowerke X-Pipes

BPM Stage II Tune (and every god damned code that Mike B could throw at the thing)

Macht Schnell Stage II Intake

Macht Schnell Lightweight UD Pulleys

Oracal Telegrey Wrap

Too much extra carbon fiber stuff.

Carbon fiber interior trim.

And many other things

Looks beautiful! You were running Forgestar's when you were static previously, right? I swear I feel like I've seen yours before. I've been debating on wrapping my M3 battleship gray.

Thanks, man! And, yeah...the car has floated around here in various stages, haha.

As for the wrap, go for it! I'm thinking about switching mine up next year, as well!

Thank you, sir. They're the first actual photos that I've had of the car that weren't from a cellphone or Cars & Coffee. Haha.

"But how do you even drive that so low?!"

That car is bananas, it looks so incredibly clean and those wheels work well. Trunk is beautiful. I love it

Thanks, guys!

The trunk is pretty nuts. Lots of work into it. The middle section is completely removable so I can get most of the space of the trunk back

OP...do you mind telling me the brand and color name of your gray wrap? Also the price including installation as well. I'm debating whether to paint my car or wrap it in gloss nardo grey. Thanks!

As having both wrapped and newly painted vehicles, it all really depends on what you want.

Our project VW Cabriolet is painted. Small car, only driven on sunny days...definitely calls for paint. It's also 90hp and gets driven mostly on back roads.

If you plan on tracking or daily driving your car...I'd go with a quality wrap every time. Much more resilient than paint when it comes to chips, and you won't have a heart attack if it gets scratched.
