Coils installed with new wheels **E92_euro**

I just got my FK Silverline coils installed and dropped my height ride both front and rear! I love the way it looks and handles now, just how a BMW should!! Check the pics out and lemme know what you guys think:

The pictures make the car color pop so well! Looking good, you should get some wheel caps though!

They are not OEM 313's, but are close. I have 12mm spacers in the front and dropped it 1.25" from factory in the front with no issues at all. However, in the back I originally put on 15mm spacers and dropped it 3/4" and it rubbed like a mofo. I took the spacers off in the back for the time being until I get my fenders rolled, without spacers I dont rub at all with the drop I did in the back.

I had the coils installed at Underground Autosports which i highly recommend if you are in the Chicago-land area!!

Curious, how much did you spend for the install (and alignment?)? Surprised you didn't go to A&L. They're price seemed unbeatable (not to mention their service and reputation).

Car looks great btw.

The whole install plus alignment was $650 at UA. I initially called IND/A&L and requested to have the install done but the guys that answered told me that they will not have any available spots for the next couple of months. I told him that I spoke with the owner before and he said that they could do it, but the guy I spoke with last was too persistent on telling me that they were booked so I took my business elsewhere.

Thanks man! yeah I love the coils, I also bought adjustable endlinks from HP Autowerks that were used with the FKs and the handling is just amazing! If you want a good deal on the coils u can get one at esetuning.com.

That doesn't sound like them at all. I guess every time I do want to come in I speak only directly to Anthony. It's a bit pricey but I guess you didn't have much of a choice.
