BMW 750 lowering kit

Hey guys,
I have a 2011 bmw 750 lix.
I just put on 22" rennen r8 deep concave wheels.
I wanted to lower the car a bit to make it look neat.
Any suggestions without any warning lights on the dashboard?

I had the H&R Sport springs installed (front springs & rear links) and it makes a world of difference.

The xDrive for whatever reason sits much taller than the standard 750. Worse yet, the front sits higher than the rear with a larger gap, making it look like it's ready for liftoff

The H&R springs make the car like it should have looked from the get-go and drives like before. No impact to the electronics...

Now I am ready for 21" wheels

does the kit interfere with the MMI system? How much did it cost you?

The kit doesn't interfere with anything. Simple, but more costly than lowering links since replacing springs appears to be more time consuming.

Paid around $330 for the kit, around $350 for the installation and $125 for a wheel alignment/camber adjustment, so around $800.

Definitely a must for an xdrive.
