From those 2 wheel choices, keep the Alpina wheels on it.

As for lowering, you will loose a little of the softness, but not tooo much. It actually still rides nice being lowered as much as it is in the picture I posted. Also, that picture was taken immediatly after the lowering kit was installed. It actually settled in a little more.

Just change out the emblems on the hood and trunk and black out the alpina on the front lip what you guys think? Working on getting exhaust next.

Looking good.... I would still change out shoes for something a tad nicer.
But emblems are strong!

I am working on that too, I am thinking of adding Hamann Fender and side skirt to the car what do you think? I feel like there is something missing on the side of the car. Front and back looks great.

I love the alpina emblems and the painted black alpina logo in the front bumper. I looked at the hamman fenders and side skirts and i wouldn't do it. Looks like your going for mods for looks so in that case to make it stand out more I would add a nice roof spoiler, paint the roof gloss black, lowering springs and a nice set of 22inch wheels. Your car is gorgeous stock so simple mods and add ons will make it more personalized and unique from other Alpinas
