One thing i like on yours is the rear badging in black/chrome. If you don't mind - can you post / pm where you got that from?

Thanks,

I got them on eBay. Look up seller din-mann. He has them for sale.

Looks great, just wish the Nappa leather came with a leather dash, or at least had the option to add it.

Here in Europe you can order Nappa leather and leather on the dash. I have both options, and they make the interior more stylish.

I agree. My parents have an F01 coming off lease soon and with both my sister and I off at college and the fact that my dad hates driving the F01 he wants to get my mom a loaded 550, but my mom hates the interior compared to her leather dashed F01.

LakerPride,

I have a 2012 550i and I am considering the acs spings with the stock 351 msport wheels. Your pics from 2011 are very helpful in showing me what that setup looks like. Just want to get your thoughts on your modified suspension after a year and a half of driving with the acs springs. Any problems? Are the other stock suspension components on your vehicle ok since changing to aftermarket springs? Also, do you know if these springs will interfere at all with the integrated active steering (4 wheel steering) option that I have on my car? Thanks man.

I also have a quick question: what made you choose the ACS springs over the H&R springs?

The ride has been just amazing! I sometimes feel like I am driving a non lowered car. I would get them in a heartbeat. The reason I chose the ACS over the H&R is because of other members positive reviews. I also had HRs on my M3 and the ride went to shit pretty quickly. Was not happy with them. I am returning my car on lease this July and planning to swap the springs on my 2014 550. Hopefully they fit!

No problems at all with other suspension components. I don't have the IAS option so don't know about that but you should be ok. That's a steering option, not suspension based.
