Just installed ACS spring on my 535i Xdrive

Got my ACS spring delivered by FedEx yesterday and have it mounted today
I like the mild drop (will settle more I assume), ride is much much better now, more comparable to my previous E90 stock sport suspension.

It seems ACS adapted Alan's noise fix solution. My spring comes with the rubber isolator by default.

Here is a quick iPhone pic

Sweet. Glad ACS decided to include them standard now.

Would love to know if your rims are OEM M5s or replicas? Where'd you get them? Looks sweet.

looks good
I also want to install eibach kit (springs and absorbers for my F10) - have one question.
Does anyone know how to get to rear absorber screw without demollishing half of rear seats?
Heard it might be done via rear speakers - is that true?


Analog last but not least - how did you remove side indicator for painting - tried to do it once and could not do it.

ACS Springs

Are these springs bouncy? Did the springs settle?

I consider the ride acceptable. Coilover would still be a better option.
However, there's no coilover option available for Xi models yet.

Yeah, the car definitely looks sick with the M5 replicas. They don't even look like 19's.
