That is a beautiful car you have there. What was the final price tag on it?

I actually wouldn't mind my own car being lowered 1/4-1/2 an inch on the front, but then it would clear less barriers

Good thought.. As my car is too low with almost zero clearance but maybe a half-to an inch would be max.

"Haters" where?? OP puts his auto out there looking for opinions and weather you like it or not you will read various opinions.Reading these comments I don't know how you could come up with haters unless you've never been on Bimmerfest in this life time...As gentle as it gets dude.

i dont know, man..seems like some of the comments above were a little harsh... "Other than the spoiler, side skirts, wheels and front lip, I like it." & "It kinda looks like a 335is" so basically it sounds like people are saying " hey, you just put a nice chunk of money into your car, but it looked much better completely stock". I seem to sense that a lot on this site and honestly it's why i dont bother with it much. dont get me wrong, there are a lot of helpful people on here, but theres also a lot of people who just blow hot air.. just sayin... half the time im looking for help around here, i get more wise cracks than anything. to each his own i guess.

I can't disagree for there are quite a few sarcastic/angry posters which I have learned to ignore but still some constructive discussions and I can't really fault you for visiting briefly it does get annoying.Have a good one Bro.

Beautiful! I went with the sedan for practicality reasons. Do I ever wish I could get by with a coupe because I sure would have one!

After the mods including the rims and tires and the car itself, spent about 36k. The car has 43k miles. At least I got the look i was going for without getting into M3 price range.

Was going for the 335is look, but wanted to do it different with the m3 style skirts over the rocker panels. Also I wanted my own choice of wheels and tires. I was tired of run flats. it's an 07 so cost wise i was able to achieve the look i wanted without going to deep into my pocket.

Haters are idiots. I can't stand 'em. They should all go to... uhm... wait a minute.

It wouldn't be my choice... those 20" wheels would never survive my commute... but I think that, for that choice of style, the look is excellent. I think it all goes together well with the alpine white.

We could get into a discussion about how the mods affect the performance of the car, but I don't think that's the point here, right?
