My new '13 AW 535i

Hey guys finally got my AW 535 on Oyster/Black last week and its a such a big car coming from a 3 series....still not a huge fan of the stupid standard seats they come with but guess I'll have to get used to it. Overall the car is amazing and love the new navi.

So far my only mods are tint (limo back and 20% front), painted reflectors, and OEM gloss black grill....wanna keep it clean n simple.

nice color combo. I agree that this car is so much bigger compared to 3 (e92), I felt the same way when I made the switch. Car looks great, congrats on your new ride!

I did some research on springs and coils before I did any drops on mine..

Springs - about 1 inch drop per side
Coils - Up to 2 inch +

I do recommend changing to coilovers that is adjustable. You can set the height and the ride quality stands! But the damage is quite heavy I must say

What do you mean that you do not like the seats? Does the '13 M Sport not come with sporty seats?

Thanks Lie I was considering the ACS springs since its just enough of a drop with good ride quality according to the members here but it's a lease so don't know if its worth the money....

P1et the seats are not sporty (multi-contour) with the M-sport package for some stupid reason on all the 2013 models.... It's a $1,800 option and it's almost impossible to find one in dealers without having to special order it
