I'd recommend getting an alignment in a week max, it doesn't take a month for the springs to settle in.

Also when you say "Ride comfort got a little more ruff but I don't do too much driving so it doesn't bother me much. " --- it's b/c the stock shocks weren't meant to paired with these springs, and ride might get considerably worse.

Regardless car looks great, just need some new wheels and your good

When you've done some more driving please comment on how the dynamic dampers are working with the stiffer rate springs.
I'm wondering if it will now feel underdamped and/or over sprung.

Is the ride in 'comfort' mode still smooth and not bouncy, like being over sprung and under damped?
In 'sport' setting is the ride firmer with crisper handling compared to the stock springs?

I'm considering installing a set of M Perf springs only to go with the dynamic dampers on my 335i Msport.
I'm guessing, hoping, that that set up may be as good as the whole static
M Perf setup.
