Ride quality is a little stiffer than stock which is what i was looking for, theres significantly less body roll so an overall improvement
It was pretty affordable thanks to the e90 sponsors i can PM u details if you are looking to get coilovers

Spacers.... Not yet, I'm pretty happy with my current setup, i dont want it to rub. So far its been a huge improvement from the xi stock setup

Thanks man,
I saw some pics of your ride too, and I see what you mean, it looks very similar with your CSL style rims.
Did you end up lowering it?

yeah mate, i lowered it on FK Automotive coilovers, they make the car solid and bouncy but give it an awesome stance. Have you any more plans for your car?

Nice!
Aside from the splitters, next year I might do the Performance Intake I'm not sure yet then it will be truly complete

Do you have any new mods coming your way?

Sweet, it will sound great with a performance intake although most likely be harder on fuel. Im going to be fitting the Mtech rear bumper and i may get angel eye projector lights at some stage
