There's a lot to like about this car. Mainly the front end and especially the grills, which give it an aggressive look. The back end is not bad either, though those exhaust tips look out of place.

But looking at it from the side, the proportions just seem off. It's way too elongated and flat, which takes away from its compactness.

Just my two cents.

I have some vids up on my car and mods.

I may get the new M2 so I'm just doing mods slowly until I make the decision.





Thatís a good start! Lol - I started buying everything once I started the build,The new M2 should be a monster with the S58. If it was AWD I would probably buy one. Iíll check out your YT! I do not have one. Too lazy to make videos 🤣

Looks absolutely beautiful! I imagine you're going to fit new wheels and tires around the springs and spacers? I don't quite get putting on spacers before new wheels and tires, unless you're sticking with oem size? I was thinking wider wheels and tires then using spacers if needed.

Thank you!! The wheels are a 2+ month build. Iím using the spacers for the oem wheels so it doesnít look terrible for the next few months,i canít deal with that lol. I had 13/15 mm spacers laying around the house,so I used them to hold me off. Iím going with wider wheels and tires on the new setup. Once installed Iíll share more info

You gotta see it in-person, it's a different story. There's something about this car that doesn't photograph nearly as well as it's in-person aesthetic.

Thank you for leading the way and sharing your modding experience!

I'm curious your thoughts of the MSS Kit. Would you recommend? Over the Eibach springs?

Thatís what the forums are all about! Learning from others,and seeing what everyone else is doing on there builds

Not sure you know this,But Eibach makes the springs for MSS lol. I would recommend them over springs on adjustability alone. If you donít care about having a specific height or rake. Springs work just fine

With that being said,I might go a bit lower once I get the wheels on. If so Iím getting coilovers and going to sell these in a month or so. They only have 450 miles,Iím waiting to see if they are going to settle more. MSS said it could take up to 2k miles,some shops told me 500-1000.

I do like the adjustability! The price increase is pretty significant from the standard Eibach springs. Is the performance what you could expect for the $? Any issues with fitment or handling?

Also - If you decide to sell, Dibs!

The car handles much better with them,the spacers probably help as well I would imagine. In sport itís for sure stiffer then stock,but not too harsh. Fitment was spot on and no issues so far!

Sounds good brother lol. Iíll let you know if/when they are going up for sale. If you havenít bought suspension by then you can be 1st
