My first 5 series / Apex EC-7s H&R & some other goodies!

Had over 40 cars, and a dozen of them were BMW's. Most of the BMW's I've owned were M3's, this is my first 5 series and i'm glad I bought this car.

Its a 2011 535XI M sport space gray.
H&R springs
Apex EC-7's
19x8.5 ET 33 15mm spacers
19x9.5 ET 38 12mm spacers
Ikon front lip
Ebay rear diffuser
Ebay trunk spoiler
ECS tuning tips
EBay side & rear extension splitters
Glossy Blk roof & mirrors

Next plans for the car, TINT!! and maybe coilovers this spring!!

I really enjoy driving this car everyday. Very smooth and luxury!! Just what my family needed!!

Enjoy!!

None of the mods and mine's a 2014 but feel this way also! I actually look for the long way home and sometimes do what that guy in the Infiniti winter TV ad!

Alas I won't be able to drive for probably 2 weeks; stupid rotator cuff..... Let the countdown begin!!

Found them on ebay. Just search F10 side skirt extensions. That should work!!


If you can't find them let me know.
Thanks

Welcome! Awesome setup.

How you feeling about the H&R springs. I'm debating getting them for my car as well

They are great!! The ride is still very comfortable and stance is much better. The rear could be a little lower, but other then that I'm very happy.

Might get some coilovers for it this summer. Then I'll get her sitting perfect!!

I bought the car with the H&R's on it from a friend of mine. He said he paid $2k to have them installed cause of the all wheel. I told him that shop ripped him off. It shouldn't have costed him more them $500-$700 tops for the install.


I did all the other mods to the car.


The car came with black Eurotek wheels. I'm trying to sell them in the for sale section for $700 with tires.

Nice! any reason Apex couldn't give you correct offsets so you wouldn't have to run spacers?

I bought them used. I had the spacers from my last set of wheels and they worked out perfect!! I like my wheels to sit really flush!! I might go 20mm spacers up front. I still have some more room up front.
