i never used the stock wheels w/ rft because i sold them when my car was delivered

c/o are definitely worth it, because you can now adjust the ride height to your likeness. also helps with handling.

xi v3's are more expensive than i v3's. i remember i was quoted ~1900+. that's why i chose h&r.

$200.00 for coil-overs. That's quite a deal. I thought $400+ was good, considering I was quoted $800. I don't understand how a good shop can do it for $200. Is that with an alignment?

Who makes the aero lip? Did you get it at **********s?

Now that you've had you xi for a while, would you say that you are happy with the way it performs wet or dry? Would you consider a 335i now that you've owned xi?

The car and color looks fantastic. I can only imagine (and I guess I'll have to) what it would look like if the pictures were in focus!

longtran

xi is a must if you live in areas that snow and/or mountainous. i would consider an i if i lived in ca or fl just because it would drift and costs less. other than that awd ensures that your car has optimal traction, and you can never go wrong with it regardless of your location
