My new xDrive... with Eiabch w/ 20" setup

My new 2010 328i xDrive.. I am very happy with it.
Just installed...

Depo Xenon
OEMbike rack
20" Stance
Eibach Pro Kit
Smoked/Painted/Cleared tail/marker lights

I have cross drilled rotors I will install friday.



Parts I have but waiting for OEM xenon w/led headlights

Kersher front bumper
Mtech rear
Custom dual exhaust w/ 4" Ti tips (no muffler)
Duke Dynamics High kick trunk
vented hood

What do you think??

Rides nice with the Eibach but i might get shocks too

Cant really see too much in those pics. The drop looks good, but your car seems much higher with the 20s. Can you get some daytime pics from other angles i.e. the front so we can see the vented hood?

20's seems like a bit much for the car - a bit out of scale.

$0.02.

Plus, 19s on these roads is already tough. 20's is going to be bone jarring! Did you just do springs, or strutstoo?

Just springs and it rides awesome even without struts. I was surprised, because I did not think it would ride nice with 20's. Going to take some daylight pics now

I like your flag. I was in Cape Town a couple of years ago.

Vented hood is not on the car/ nor other parts listed. I am waiting for OEM headlights I ordered so I can do one complete install

There are no "xi" springs from Eibach for the 800th time...everyone that uses Eibach springs uses the "i" springs

Thanks, I was born and raised in South Africa but moved to the states my last two years of high school. Cape Town is one of the nicest places still left there. I was about 4 hours east in a small fishing town called Mossel Bay.

Yea, I have been there too. My first trip to SA I went to Mossel Bay to go Great White Shark diving. Was a blast!

HAHA, You like my Brembos? I just add my new rotors too. I was going to get the Vossen but they were out of stock in machine grey. Plus these wheels was $650 cheaper. I also used my OEM TPMS from my stock wheels.

I dont even know what my car MPG with sock 16" wheels. Only own the car for a 2 months or so. I put the cheap gas in my SULEV, but I guess I will keep track and post it. Thanks

Not loving the brembo badging, but the red looks great! Did you paint the calipers yourself?
