Thanks! Screws underneath the vehicle. No drilling involved. I used the same holes that hold the underplate thing lol. Holds well even with a crap load of snow on it

Mild/ modest drop. Bilstein Sport + Eibach Pro Springs (335i Version). Only had it for 1.5 days so far. Handles like a dream!

Sounds like you need a beater truck....preferably 4X4

Sweet ride though!

Nice LMB sedan.

I've also got eibachs for daily driving and a modest drop. Very comfortable. Don't listen to pressure to slam it, that shit is ghetto.

Perfect tint you've got as well.

Have you pulled on a dyno with your engine tweaks? Curious to see what the result would be. I'm assuming it was substantial since you've applied the larger calipers in the front

Thanks!!

I don't plan on going lower than i am now due to snow lol. Haven't done a dyno yet, but planning to do it soon. Hoping all the money i spent was well worth it

Coilovers are ride height adjustable. No excuses.

That makes absolutely no sense. Stainless steel KWs are not affected by cold weather or salt. Stop making excuses.

I'm not making excuses. How does that not make sense? i do know they're stainless steel, but if you've experienced coil overs in -35-40 degrees Celsius.... Go troll elsewhere "pro hater"

I'm sure they may stiffen in extreme cold, but so will your regular springs. There is no material difference, just spring rate. You ARE making excuses. There is always a way.
