very nice, a little low in the front for Florida roads, but still sweet stance. Better than my E92 XI 4x4 stance. I can rock crawl with this thing.

that's a good thing about the V1's, any height you want... adjust as needed.

I will be upgrading possibly later in the year on the suspension. Just need to make it look less like the F-150 4x4 I sell daily

I think it's pretty good, stable and yet comfortable. I prefer it more then bmw's own sports suspension (on 330/335 non xDrive). I've been running sports suspensions for a dozen years, so I expect a stiffer ride. it's not harsh though.

Got the same on mine.
The ride was weird as first but later i figured out that i got the front a little too low so it feels heavy then im in a corner but then i raised it out, now its golden and deadly lol.

Took an 4 hours trip the other day and i got to say, even with the crappy road we got around here, i love how the car feel.
And yeah, i hate the 4x4 stance when i first bought the car. I was like this isnt even an BMW height...

Dont know where you live, but in Brooksville/Springhill buttery smooth isnt the right term. Ive lost my old truck in potholes before. I think the worst road Ive ever been on for a major highway though is in Viriginia. I swear I saw a VW bug disapear into an abyss on the highway. I want to say it was 64?

How can you say to low for Florida roads! Come drive through stupid Connecticut. Road work in Florida is when someone walks across the street with flip flops and get sand on the road. Road work in CT means your about to drive over an area that a road has yet to be built on.

Come up to Boston or NYC, then you'll know crappy roads!

Car looks great OP. Bit low for my tastes on a BMW, but congrats on a first class suspension setup. Glad to hear you like the ride too.

lmfao. Freeze/thaw cycles, and the abuse plows deliver certainly do a number on pavement.

My brother works for the highway department up here, and they're expirimenting with all kinds of new asphalt mixes to try and combat the longevity and maintenance issues on our roads.

Isn't that the truth, I/91 to Hartford. There are some pot holes you think will swallow a car whole. Forget Farmington ave, I flat out refuse to take that road to west Hartford, there's literally paved ruts, deeper then a pickups clearance.
