Challenge - F30 335 Project Car - Installed H&R Springs and BBS CH wheels

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just last week we finally got around to installing some H&R Super Sport springs and a set of BBS CH wheels on Bridgestone RE-11 tires. Black painted sport grills and whiskers as well as painted relectors are also installed. We'll remove the plate mount and maybe shave the markers soon. Here are a few shots of her as she sits now!

Its bolted, but leaves holes. We'll have to fill them. Mostly only launch cars had these ugly warts

Can you post a side shot with the steering wheel straight. Does the front seem to set a littler higher than the back?

When you put H&R springs,suspensions doesnt get out from guarantee?
And also is there any damage to suspension system(to change from confort to sport mode)?Since the springs are lower than normal?
Thanks

As with nearly every BMW ive seen on oem or aftermarket springs, the front is a tad higher. I'll see if i have any good straight on side pics.

The car is on BBS CH in 19x8.5 +35 front and 19x9.5 +40 rear. Tires are 225 front and 255 rear. Front fitment is pretty close to E90 3 series but the rear has a bit less room
