513M looks great, do you know their weight? Bumpers look fantastic. Those H&R sport springs give the perfect fender gap in my subjective opinion.

EDIT: just saw this has 152k miles on it wtffffffff looks so good for the miles.

I can't say enough about how fantastic those 513's look... There was a set in my area for 1200 with PSS4's. I should have picked them up

I was on the fence about the H&R Sports vs Performance springs. But damn this just sold me on one. With my tire sizes too its the perfect stance.

Thanks! The paint isn't perfect (couple minor scratches here and there, should buff out), but for this many miles it's definitely a solid 8-8.5/10. It helps that I do my best to maintain it cosmetically and mechanically

18" 513M weights:
front = 8.92kg (19.6lbs)
rear = 9.44kg (20.8lbs)

Truly an amazing OE wheel and unbeatable for style (perfect fitment without spacers) and quality (OEM forged!) at this price point. Any other reputable forged wheels would cost $4k+

Yes, you absolutely should have . That's a great price.

The Performance suspension doesn't give enough of a drop to make the cost worthwhile, in my opinion. H&R Sport is so perfect on these cars in terms of ride height. I daily drive it even in blizzards and it's more than doable. Then again, I've owned much lower cars in the winter too lol.

That's insane for an OEM wheel, I think the 17s on my 328i are like 24-26lb.

Even the RPF1s in those sizes are only like 1.5lb less.

Once again, well done. Fantastic car. Wish I had the cash to do the exact same mods to mine. Maybe one day.

Has twice as many mileage as my car but looks better. I guess it's true it's all about how she takes care of herself....
