thanks man!

the drop is about 1.3" in the front and 1.4" in the rear...really worked out well with the 22s...the ride is surprisingly very close to stock...

i was contemplating getting the H&R coilovers but the reviews by some people on here steered me away from them and i'm completely happy i went with the springs

Looks "OK"... the problem with that type of wheel is that it makes the rotors look even smaller. (My 535i rotors are bigger than those)

As I've posted before, red calipers

Please get a BBK

Well.. they have done work on several of my cars and know what they are doing. Customer service is key to them so I thought I'd pass on the info for another forum member, especially since he is in OC.

Is that a problem?

Schweet lookin' car.

Just keep the painted calipers.

You don't need a big boy brakes unless you're tracking the car.

Its a question of looking good, if you roll 22" that show alot of brake then you should buy a BBK.

think of it this way

If your not tracking youre car don't buy a BBK

then

If your not building a show car don't mod it
