My new 330XI!! lots of pics 56k warning

Quick story before pics. I ended up selling my G35 the day I took delivery of my 330XI. Talk about lucked out. I drove my G35 to my dealership, around 1pm the guy who bought it walks in with a bank check, I sign the title over to him and give him the keys. Two hours later at 3pm my salesman pulls up with my BMW. Since friday night Ive been to the beach twice and I am in love with the car!! Here are some pics.

I just bought tonight an OEM lip and an AC roof wing to clean up the rar end because im not feeling it very much in stock for. Also my tint is setup for this thursday. I also bought some AC aluminum pedals to go with my aluminum trim. Other than that I just need to lower the car. XI's are way to high off the ground, it needs atleast an inch and a half all around. If anyone can help me with that id appreciate it. Here are some pics!















My favorite part

Well in terms of performance, Im breaking it in the right way, but the G def has more balls in terms of low end torque. However in terms of interior comfort, fit and finish, and many other things the G really cant compete.

Congratulations. Very nice car. I have the xi with OEM spoiler and aluminum pedals too, makes the car more sporty. I'm fine with the ride height, but H&R will soon be making a lowering kit.

Here's a link.

Nice but to the beach? I live in Hawaii and would never do that. That is why I also have an SUV!

I actually went to creativeautworks.com and was able to put the 330xi H&R springs in my basket and checkout. I am tempted to pay for them and see what happens. It says the drop is 1.3 F 1.2 R which should be perfect! I wonder what BMW will think about it though? This is my first bimmer. Infiniti was cool about mods, how will BMW feel about H&R springs?

That's a good question. I think I've read some posts on here that have said BMW is cool about suspension mods. Maybe do a search. I'm not planning to lower mine ... at least not anytime soon but I am curious though.

Suspension mods aren't an issue unless the mods you perform cause some form of failure you try and warranty.

162s area must on the Xi... It makes the wheel well look smaller.
