Looks great. Love the wheels. Are you sure you lowered it? My H&Rs lowered it about 2 inches lower than that. That's so strange. My 550i is heavier, but it shouldn't make that much of a difference. I just had my RD sport springs installed today, and the front is not as low which is great.

Thanks, Lui. Yeah, I am waiting for more drop. But we can't really drop too much here as we usually have to ramp up and down in multi-story car parks. One member here got the 3D Design front lip without lowering and he scratch his front big time.

The H&R for my 528 is definitely much lower than the stock. Sorry I have not measured the before and after but now I can stick 2 fingers between the fender gap for both front and rear. I am pretty satisfy as it is. Regarding the bounciness, my car does not have AD and I really don't find them bouncy at all at the moment. Not sure if it is the difference of road condition here. Highways in Hong Kong are usually not so undulating.

Thanks. Not sure about the % for the tint as the film is from a local vendor, not 3M or any known brand. But the tint is very light, sort of like 70%. The photos are deceiving, the tint actually is not as dark. Many road blocks in Hong Kong and the cops will cite us and make us get rid of the tint if it is too dark.

Thanks, sure you will love the drop. Make sure you post us some photos after the installation.

Thanks, mao. The F14 is great value for the bucks. If I have budget like you guys I would have gotten the Forged One.

Thanks, Kev. Sorry for the long wait. The mod is very minimal compared to you guys. Too bad my CFO (wife) won't approve any mod for the short coming.

Very nice!! Tempting me to get the H&R springs as well.

Do you feel the ride comfort has suffered after the H&R's were installed?

Thanks. The stock springs are just too soft for me. I feel like I am driving a 7 series with no feel on the road. The H&R is more sporty and makes the F10 drives more like my previously owned E46. The ride is a little more bumpy over pot holes, speed bumps and etc. but still very comfortable. My wife has no complaints on the ride comfort for the H&R vs. the stock springs.

Thanks, chiver. My wife has no more complaints on the floating feeling. The CG is lower now and suspension much tighter, body roll improved significantly. I definitely recommend to swap the stock springs for improved cornering performance.

Cheers

Thanks.

Not a clue on the offsets. Forgestar won't disclose and kept them as a secret. All they said is offsets are custom fitted to different cars and models, but guarantee to be flushed to the fender.
