F32 New springs and wheels

I got my first mods of the spring installed this week. The new springs are AC Schnitzer, and the wheels are VMR 803's.

Beautiful, the wheels really suit it. Would you have the tire/wheel specs for those interested?

Looks great! I love the blue and silver combo. The black grills accent the rest of the black trim very nicely. Good job!

Like others have said, looks great. Nice subtle drop with well spec'ed wheels and tires.

Very tasteful upgrade. Which tires did you go for? They look like PSS but hard to tell with the resolution of the pics.
Anyway, getting rid of the OEM runflats is also great for the ride and handling IMHO.

Looking good! The VMR V803 suits the 4-series so well. Thanks for all the support Aaron!

The tires are indeed Michelin PSS. I used the same tires on my previous car as well, and they're a huge improvement over the runflats. Between that and the new springs I feel like the car is now set up how it should have been from the factory. The AC Schnitzer springs are a great match for the adaptive dampers.

Excellent. Very, very well done. Like seeing a cute girl in a skirt and heels.

So true. The M-sport version of the 'Ultimate Driving Machine' coming with crapy runflats and soft suspension is ludicrous.

Do you have DHP? Any issues with bottoming out or bounciness?

Yeah I do have DHP. I haven't had any issues bottoming out and haven't experienced any bounciness.
