I think you should get both. KWV3 and QUAD.

Is the one next to Ikea the most open? Any suggestions? H&S?
lol now this is why I never lower my cars, my wife would kill me if I can not park the car in any car park in HK.
the best 1 is time square and you get 2 hours free parking.

Hugh car compared to 3er, almost like a 7er. I would love to have IAS for driving this big boy in HK. Yeah, mlai has it.
if they are shipping it buy sea it will take 10 to 12 week to arrive, most of the company wait until they have a big shipment then they order to save cost on the lot. I wait 15 weeks for my brakes to arrive in my pre-lci e60.

I think i keep all mods under 80K..otherwise i will be annoyed that i didnt get 535
it dose not matter what car you get, we will still end up spend 80k on mods
what the fun in life if we don't mod the car lol

Tones of mods even with 535, may be minus the exhaust since the dual output is already good looking.
you don't have to wait long they will run out in 45000km

why not try the FSD

I don't think AsiaKid is talking about ground clearance, but more about the narrow two-way ramps there.........

Yes. It is a problem. But not big enough not to do it

For H&R, it lowers the front and back by 1.4" and 1.3". Front bumper for M-tech is basically the same as the stock bumper in terms of ground clearance. I have no problem scraping the front. Unless you race through the speed bumps or the beginning/end of ramps. Even scrapped, it's hardly seen since the bottom part of the bumper is the lowest part, you won't see it. I scrapped my stock bumper a few times. Can't tell.

I think because most of you added front lips.

I see. but 2cm is no that much, less than an inch. Like a finger in width. Shouldn't be a problem.
