Thanks Ace! I ordered it unpainted from Steve Thomas BMW for about $280. Had it painted and installed for another $100 at EuroRev.

Having come from a 2003 M5 with coilovers, the 550i sport is hands down much nicer..especially with acs springs. Not to mention, I also have the Dinan 2 software upgrade. HELLO! Wow! The car is fast! At 150mph in 6th gear and pulling hard enough to keep you planted in the seat. I eased off to stay out of trouble. Man, Steve Dinan and his gang put nit together on this one.

Back to the springs. Best springs for a moderate (much needed) drop on the f10.
Yeah no bounce at all! They really did a great job with their R&D. I really have to get behind the wheel of a Dinan tuned 550. Its already a beast! Any volunteers in the So Cal area??

Look on ebay under "din-mann" and you will find the black 550i emblems. I bought them - quick delivery and good quality and simple to install.

I can recommend the rear spoiler from JleviSW - it comes painted and with double sided tape on the spoiler so installation is simple and takes about 15 mins. Very happy with mine and the fit, finish and color match is excellent.

Careful, california companies shoot water base paints, order out of state you will get true OEM paint blend match.

Got my M5 decklid spolier from www.getbmwparts.com

2 tumbs way up, looks just like factory OEM.

Lakerpride, have the ACS springs settled since you installed them? When exactly were those pics taken? Just wondering if they have settled or gone lower since the install.

These pics were taken about 2 days after the install. They might have settled a few mm since then. I'll have updated pictures with my new wheels later this week. It needs a wash first!

550i badge

Laker -

Looking forward to seeing the wheels. I should be getting my AW 2012 550ix next week so i'm getting the mod's lined up -nothing major (tint/clear bra/spoiler/x-drive debadge). 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,

Aceman
