Luckily I survived and I am here grateful to share with you my build! I was sad to say goodbye to my MY15 Space Grey F15, but man was i excited to get into my first ever M car!

Decent trade in value, a great discount off MSRP and $6500 of BMW incentives = a deal I can not refuse. I was now the proud owner of a MY20 Alpine White with black/beige interior F97 Comp package. I said to myself it's great the way it is, but who am I really kidding. Thanks to great forum sponsors like r33_RGSport IND-Distribution as well as a personal friend of mine who isn't a listed vendor here on the forums. The mods were flowing in, first thing on hand were a set of Vossen wheels (HF-5) in anthracite, and a set of MSS height adjustable springs to lower the car as well as helping with the "harsh" ride. As well as 5% Llumar ceramic tint all around and Air 80 on the front windshield.

Then as time progressed, r33_RGSport kept posting pics of upcoming front lips that were about to be released and I pulled the trigger on the RKP lip. I am glad I did as the build quality is amazing as well as wrapping around the whole front of the bumper.

As I thought I was pretty much done after this, my wallet was screaming at me. Unfortunately a great forum member Mr. jsnkim happens to live close by and I got to hear first hand how wonderful the Akrapovic exhaust sounds. So a couple of dollars later I have an axel back Akra installed on my car.

I also have a set of low dust pads from r33_RGSport which are working out PERFECTLY! No more squeaking and my wheels still look clean after driving for a week or two. Here are a couple of pics of the car as it is now, until the next mod!

Funny I ordered the same wheels in 20s and tire spec without looking at other builds lol
Small world
I'm also brought pads from RG sport Ben
Looks clean
Also I'm glad U are ok
God bless
Thanks man. How do your like the 20's?
It's a lot better than 21s it ride little less bumpy.
I'm wondering tho, how is it that your rear wheels look for out, is it on spacers?

I believe we have the same wheels
If you have a chance can you take a pic from the rear so I can see how far yours come out.
Mine is supposedly to be 20x10.5
What is yours in the rear?

Looks nice! Did you wear through your tires pretty quickly, or did you not like the Continentals and switch to Michelins shortly after?
