UK - E92 335D Dropped on BC Coilovers

Sup peeps,

This is already in the UK section but thought I'd give the 335D some more attention stateside
..Comments welcome - keen to know what the US side gotta say.. but I know I've got a few more things before the finished article...

Bought start of July this year, just added LED license plate lights and BC BR Racing coilovers, which is pretty much decked... BMW Show coming up over here in Gaydon Heritage Museum this Sunday so decided to leave it as is - no rubbing and very minimal scraping when careless!

To Do:
Aero Front Lip
M3 Rear Lip
M3 Side Skirts
Tints
Remap to 350 BHP
Full Audio Upgrade - JBL MS8 + 3 way components + Boot Sub
Non RFTs and MAYBE, just Maybe some new alloys next year LOL.
Full Interior + Exterior Detail

Enjoy for now.. some Before and After...

LOL, Wheel MAYBE Next year... I'm loving the 230's my friend... maybe in the minortiy on that one but hey it's good to be different

BC BR Racing Series and not not all the way down - but pretty low as seen lmao. I actually wanted it higher but after fitting we realised we didn't have the adjustable spanners (bough 2nd hand from forum member) so had to wait for that to come through the post... in this time I didnt realise I had it on the hardest setting and felt crap driving it around.... teeth and spine breaking! But after a day I realised there are two dials in the front so I just adjusted the the damping towards the softer setting and now it feels amazing!! Cornering at higher speeds is amazing and I look forward to each corner now LOL!

Thanks man but I will hold off on spacers for now as with this height they will rub ANSI don't want to roll the arches/fenders just yet. I'll raise it in a months time and maybe think about spacers or put that cash towards new alloys... As above, those vossen cv3 are toooooooooo sick!!!

Looks great slammed +1 on spacers. Great job, I do love those 230s as is but will look sick with new wheels. You might want to get a rear mtech or m3 diffuser when you put the rest of your aero parts on as well.

Looks great! I have 230s on my car too... I put on spacers and front lowering perches and changed the whole look of the car.

Your rear seems a bit too low though...in that side shot looks like it's squatting a bit. Raise the rear half inch and you'll be perfect in my opinion

They are coilovers buddy, not springs. They're called BC Coilovers (BR Series). The stance is not confirmed as I'm raising it but it's as you wish really.
