Canadian F10 lowered with 21, sorta maybe ish...

UPDATE PAGE 2

Here is my F10, not the best pictures and I'm not completely thrilled with the turn out but I still have a front lip and roof wrap to do..

I find it isn't "mean" enough. I think I would like it more if I could run a skinnier tire with a stretch. The wheels are slightly poking which is good, hopefully they don't rub too much.

2013 528i Xdrive

My mods
H&R springs (half coil cut)
21" Niche Monoforged (brushed face, polished window and a slight grey tint) with Hankook tires
Carbon diffuser
Custom dual exhaust
Gloss black grill

Front lip (not installed yet)

Looks great! How's the ride with the half coil cut? What are the offsets on the wheels?

Looks great to me! The roof wrap will give it a lower effect.

Cut springs? Who does that?!?!?! LOL! I would have cut a full coil though

Rides fine, I'm used to really slammed cars so to me it rides like butter...

I don't remember the offsets. Running 285/30 on the rear, was hoping for more stretch. They stick our about half inch and will for sure rub on a good bump. I want to say the rears are a 29...

I know right?? Kids these days. Was hoping to cut more but not with the back as it is now. I may have to man up and do so rear quarter pulling muscle exercises.

Not sure I cut them right away. I assume the thickness of the spring so about 1/2"...

I love it! Get some color matched reflectors too and it will be perfect!

Car looks good, but I understand what you are saying that it isn't mean enough. I think if you did a white/black theme it would pull it off a little better. Color matched side markers and blinker trim, paint the trim on the door handles black, tint windows, small roof spoiler, side skirt extensions, debadge trunk and do white/black roundels.

Sticky, your ride looks great. I like it ... a helluva lot . A couple of things might give it a little edgier look - how about a rear window spoiler, carbon fibre mirror caps, carbon fibre roundels, a darker window tint, and painted brake calipers. I absolutely lurve that half coil cut. The drop is purrfection. And the rims ... sweet as honey!

Car is sitting nice. Rear offset appears to be a tad aggressive. I think if you lose the chrome accents in favor of color matched or black you will add some agressiveness to your ride. Well done so far.

Thanks for the compliments guys, it's starting to grow on me.

I'm wrapping the roof black and it'll do all the chrome trim in white. Plus once I install the front lip it may be better.

It rubs but not too badly, here you can see the rear fitment (pre-tires). I'm considering adding camber and cutting another half coil...

Very nice f10, but the tires looks a bit big, guess they're 35 and 30 profile, and not 30 and 25.

Ya tires look a little big. I went with 245/35 and 285/30 because the roads are terrible in Montreal, plus they have no armour all.

Here are some updated pix, roof and chrome wrap completed.

Looks awesome, much more aggressive. I would get color matched reflectors up front. These pics really make me want to cut that half coil up front now.

Ouch, I get a tiny rub on big dips too but I haven't noticed any marks on my tires or quarter panels. Hopefully I don't end up like that lol

Ouch, do you know what offset you're running?
