By the way Turner is running a 10% off special on all H & R springs this month.

Good luck!
Thank you. I found the set for $140.

Alignment done... No need for any other adjustments! Here are some better pics of the lowered car. You can see that there's still plenty of clearance with the stock 20's from the fenders... but about 1.5 in drop from stock. Significant improvement in handling including steering response which feels much crisper! No no significant deterioration in ride quality either...

Here you go... Typical german negative camber configuration... Was way off after change of ride height but 100% in the green after alignment.

Rides and drives perfect! No regrets!!!

Thanks for the shots.
I was imagining the wheels would be sunk in.
Looks really good. I will be doing this soon.
Hope you don't mind sharing cost for shop to do the install.

I just ordered my lowering links today. Should be here within the week. I should have pictures of the cars drop by the weekend.

Runs about $450 for install... and another $150 for BMW to do 4 wheel alignment after... well worth it just look out for dips in the road, curbs, and driveways!! One benefit... park sensors now pick up the edge of curbs but you have to turn them on when pulling up to one. Also, you'll want to adjust your headlights up a bit... Just mark the height on your garage door and afterwards adjust them to this level... The vertical adjustment screw for the drivers headlight is under a small plastic cap in the fender to the right of the light (when standing in front), the adjustment for the passengers is again to the right of the light inside the access panel for the lamp housing. The other adjustment screw moves the lights left/right.

Good luck!!!
