Love the wheels, once you take out the ugly amber reflectors it's gonna look even more amazing. Did you get those wheels from the forum? I saw a guy selling the exact same wheels in here.

Thanks.. they are more impressive in person in my opinion. I removed the orange reflectors today and installed the M5 trunk spoiler lip. Looks much better. Will have to get pics and post it up later. Yes I picked these up for from Tony. Great seller!

Thanks! The H&R springs are great. The car feels more planted on the ground and reduced the body roll significantly in my opinion. Makes the car fun to drive. No noises, squeaks, rattles, etc. Really great spring for the price and you get a great drop. I was considering going to coil-overs because I do like my cars low and I really thought I would need them for 21s. But I hate to lose my EDC or DDC control. (not sure what that control is called for the different modes comfort,sprots,sprots+) However most of the feedback I have gotten said the car sits pretty good and I dont need to lower it more. So probably gonna stick with them. Hope that helps. Let me know if you need more specific info.

Ya its just a little higher than the front. Wish I had a 550 it sits better with H&Rs. But dont think it looks too bad so gonna keep it for a while. Might eventually switch to coilovers.

Thanks Guys! Im thinking about getting exhaust next. Still need to research what to buy though. Feel limited for the 535. Seems like everything is geared towards 550s.

I was able to install the trunk lip spoiler and front bumper reflectors myself. However the side blinkers were pretty stubborn. I tried to follow this link:

http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=546370

But it just felt like I was going to break it. So before I broke something I decided to have that and the kidney grills done at a local shop (Performance Technic). Great shop and good bunch of guys!
