The color's not bad but I'm not digging those wheels too much. Hopefully it will look much better once your new wheels and the air suspension are installed

Hello & Thanks for the Welcome!

Hello friends.
I signed-up yesterday, because a fellow member has posted a License Plate Holder for sale. So, I asked him: "How do I buy it?"
I don't have a clue if I did it correctly or not, but I did not get an answer.
The other thing I did yesterday, was to set-up My Garage with my three BMW's. Now, I want to go back to edit the information and I cannot find my way. Please, HELP! Someone, please guide me... how can I get back into My Garage to edit my BMW's information?

Regards,
Demetri X.

I like it, I like the rims too...not fond of OEM looking wheels. Would hate to lose my car while parking at a BMW meet or sumthin

Hey Guys,

New to the forum. Glad I found it, lots of great info.

Here is my ride.

Has 22" Lexani wheels staggered

The dealer I bought it from said it is not lowered. Took it to my local BMW shop today they told me the same thing. To me it looks to be lowered. I tried to look at the coils and didnt see a name brand only a number on the front coils, no name.

Any way to tell?

Thanks

thanks for the link. Would love to join you guys.

Anyone have any thoughts on my above question on how to tell if my car has been lowered? Again, it looks to me to be lowered a little but cannot tell. Also any good BMW or Auto Shops in the socal area that anyone can recommend for suspension/lowering?

Thanks

No, it does sit very nice. By the look of the gap between the rear fender an the top of the tire, I doubt its lowered. Most use H&R's an others have used Eibach an BG's.

Thanks for the feedback. Seems like most have the H&R springs. Will look into those. Is yours lowered?

Auto Talent was too expensive. Call them, if you don't like the quote they give you try D2 in Alhambra or Speedvision in Glendale where I got mine done.
