Thanks... Really like your car and that is why I went with the molded lip.
That was just a caliper cover. I am thinking of painting the caliper though after seeing yours.

Thanks... I am waiting for the N20 Eisenmann or 3D myself.
I don't think Megan has an exhaust for N20.

+1. I would remove the caliper covers. They make your car look very cheap. Overall, great work.

Finally got the front bumper completed with the splitter and the car lowered with ACS spring.

Barely noticable with the lowering on ACS (maybe 3/4"), but the handling does get a bit better vs. stock.

I went with non staggered at 19x8.5 ET35 all around (pretty much close to the standard factory settings of ET33 I believe).

I also have ACS lowering on my F10 xDrive. Wait until the springs have settled. The car wil drop another 5 - 10mm. My 530d is perfect now.

Here's a (bad) pic of my car. Car lowered 25mm in front and 30mm in the back.

Good to know. Although I think 530d is a little heavier than 528i.

i'm thinking about getting the replica m5 wheels or getting breyton GTS. the replica m5 wheels are just original looking so i'm leaning towards getting them over the breytons. my only hesitation is the quality of these rims. would anybody know if they are at least up to industry standards?
