Piggyhead528,

Great looking ride! I've been thinking about upgrading my wheel tire as well as upgrading suspension to coil-overs. It looks like you've lowered your car (from the pictures). How's the ride and what system did you go with? I have a '02 525 Touring.

BTW are you located in South Orange County, CA? The house in the background looks exactly like mine! Probably the same builder.... just wondering.

First off,

Secondly, Very Sweet ride man


But I dont think that he has it lowered safety, if I put 19's on mine it would look like that I think, also those houses do look fimilar for some reason!!(Well I do live in Orange County and drive alot)

Hi guy, first of all.. thanks for the reply !
I live in Brea CA , about 25min away from Orange
I did lower my ride 2".
The ride is now a little stiff, but it's what I expected. Over all the handling has gotten much better.

do you have any suggustions on the body kits?

thanks
Jack

Everyone this board have such nice looking cars.... the peer pressure is just too much for me :P . So the CFO allowed me to install AC Schnitzer's lower lip on mine. Thanks all... you've been great .

Maz,
I think I've seen you on the road before..... Can't remember where though but since you're also in Orange County.... probably in Orange County.

Piggyhead,
Did you say you dropped the car 2"? Isn't that a little low? How did you lower your car? Coil-over?

Angry

The rim i have is Axis Supermash 19" x8.5" front and 9.5" rear.
I have lower the car 2" by changing the spring itself. It 's a little stiff now, but it's what i expected

BTW: I am looking for the BMW OEM front lips, does anyone know where i can get them for a good price? please refer the pic below, thanks !

What kind of springs did you get? My friend had Eibach on his, and they sagged real bad after 14k Mi, H&R seem to have good lasting quality.

If you show your BMW love, she will love you in return.
