If this is your question or concern, lowering and 22's are not for you.

Gotcha - thank you. I was hoping that you get all the pluses without any minuses. Sort of like ECU tuners say, no loss in fuel economy since BMW tunes for bad gas tolerance etc.

No smitty it's not awd. I have a question though. What are the differences between the 3 modes comfort sport and sport+. Do they just tighten the suspension, or lower and raise as well?

I'm debating on what color to paint the calipers. I'm struggling with my choice. Any suggestions would be appreciated. My first thought is a gold, but that isn't getting me excited. Let's hear some suggestions.
