I'd say you did very well in the trade, and came out with something that looks 10 times better!!

Thank you so much! The 4GC is definitely a looker and you won't be disappointed!

Do it! The 440 GC will be one sick package. I wish I could have waited a bit but needed a car ASAP.

Thank you so much Martin! The little baby girl has been enjoying her rides with daddy in the GC.

1. Rim and Tire specs...offset and tire size

3. Info on front lip...specifically install process and more importantly clearance from ground to lip. Manufacturer of lip and where you got them from.
Thanks in advanced and keep up the great work!
Absolutely!

1) BBS LM 20x8.5 et32 and 20x9.5 et37. Tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sports 235 35 20 and 265 30 20.

2) I'm on the stock M Sport suspension, but I did have my stock brakes in the trunk when I took the pics so the rear will sit a little higher with it in the boot.

3) The lip is made by a company called Lightweight from Germany. A lot of M3/M4 guys run it. It's made of PE and is really sturdy. It installs by screws and bolts, mostly in the stock mounting places. But you do have to drill 4 holes along the front edge and 2 more screws at the extreme edges of the spoiler. Install is very easy and you can do it yourself in 30min to 1hr.

Clearance wise, it's not that low, which is why I love it. It does protrude out a bit more so on steep angles, you definitely need to angle your car for the exit.

Hope that helps!

Although it was sad to see her go, I had been eying a 435i Gran Coupe for some time so I was finally able to pick one up!

Some of the big ticket items swapped over seamlessly from the F30 like the M Performance exhaust, Carbon fiber interior trim, carbon fiber mirror caps, yellow brake kit, and the 20" BBS LM's so I got a big head start on the mods. I added the M Performance black grills, carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, rear diffuser, and the Lightweight front lip.









I'm waiting for my new front bumper to get painted (dealer pre-drilled license plate holes ) to put on the color matches reflectors. I'm also waiting for my KW Street Comfort coilovers to ship from Germany. I had the V2's on the F30 and loved them, but thought I'd give the Street Comforts a try since I've acquired my greatest mod ever late last year.




Much better than the ///M fender badges, haha. Matches the brakes too!
Both look really good! I'm biased.. but I like the 335 body better but mineral grey is a kick ass color!
