Looks awesome!!!! Very aggressive! I'm planning on going with the cv1's I guess I'll lower it first. How's the performance with the wheels? Do they feel lighter than stock?

I believe they are just a bit lighter than stock...main thing Ive noticed is that it does seem to handle better. Probably a combination of the performance tires vs the run flats as well as the increase in footprint

Finally got the M5 diffuser installed. Main hold up was that the insert piece had to come in from Germany. There is a decent amount of changes needed in order to get the diffuser on. The exhaust tips need to be moved in by roughly an inch or so on each side. Also, a pretty good chunk of the "adapter plate" which is behind the stock diffuser needs to be trimmed off to clear the M5 piece. More than I was aware of but all in all not a terribly hard job. Stood and watched at my shop while they were doing it, took less than 2 hours and thats with plenty of "what the..." time included.

didn't cut the tips at all they just moved both the mufflers more inboard by about 2" on each side and shortened the bracket behind the resonator that braces the piping together. Adapter plate basically comes all the way off, lol. You will have to basically experiment with how much is needed.

yes the drop will be nice. I have the h&r drop and love it. IMO it's just right, easy to get over dips, speed bumps, and driveways.

No shit?? That's about what it cost me on my e92 but the shops in my area (Tampa fl) have been telling me F10 will take them roughly 6-7 hrs so most places are quoting $700!?***

The shop I install took about little over 5hrs to the spring install on my car. Urs is not xdrive and should not take more time then xdrive one. On ACS website, stated average time for install spring on non xdrive cars is less then 4hrs. Jusp print that paper and bring it to them. I thing the shop is trying to rip you off brother. Or they dont know what they are doing IMO. Just shop around for more shops. Im pretty sure there are lots of reputable shop in ur area and dont cost like $700 ridiculous price. Non xdrive cars should be $300 arround!

Thanks a ton man! I'll definitely find that sheet and use it as some leverage. The shop in question is actually pretty solid for most things and has done all the other work on my car. But they did mention mine is the first F10 they've worked on. So you're probably right, they're just trying to cover their ass in case it takes them forever. But then even if it doesnt I'd probably never know! :
