I will tell you though the springs are the best thing when doing a simple comparison of individual modifications from the stock 550i - flattens the car out on turns and has a more aggressive stance with lowering. I also did the free flow exhaust - I'm not all that enamored with the Dinan tips though - might change those down the line.
Thanks for the advice. I have dinan exhaust on an older 3 series and I agree about the tips. how is the sound of the exhaust?

I was worried about the springs making the car too sporty (i.e. rough), is that not an issue?
