'08 AW/CR 335xi - i-sport springs, Bilsteins, Hyperblack 189's, Tint

Hey what's up guys, I just posted some of these pics in the "pics/vids" section, but I wanted to make sure you guys saw how the i-sport springs and Bilsteins combo came out.
Car:
2008 AW/CR, Auto, Nav, Premium, Sport, 18" wheels, Procede V5, Nitto 555's, DCI

Suspension:
I picked up a set of used i-sport springs from a member online, and matched them to a set of the Bilsteins from Turner Motorsports. All I can say is WOW. This is how the car should have come from the factory. I have had a 335i before with the sport suspension and I am well-aware of how that rides/handles. If I was to rate the 335xi/335i Sport/335xi Sport With Bilstein combos on a scale from 1-10, it would probably be a 4/6/9 respectively. The sport springs give a slightly more firm ride and about 1" lower. I went from 15" from wheel-center to fender to about 14" in the front and 14.5" to 13.5" in the rear. Not slammed, but definitely how it should have come from the factory. The Bilsteins are, as usual, in a class all their own. Fantastic ride quality much smoother than stock (especially with the 555's - 4lbs/tire lighter than the runflats), the steering is much quicker to react and it soaks up bumps MUCH easier with no bounce what-so-ever. To compare, the stock suspension has roughly a 0.5" strut rod whereas the Bilsteins are at least 2" in diameter --- BEEFY. Highly recommend this combo.
