Upgrades

I have been meaning to post these photos for sometime, but have just been very busy as of late. Anyways, I bought a new F30 328i Sport Line in September. Love the car, but I knew right away I need upgrades in the wheel and suspension department. I knew what wheels I wanted to get, as well as suspension upgrades so I shopped around comparing prices and and reputations of each business. After much consideration, I chose to go with Mod Bargains. Now I have seen mixed reviews on these forums, both good and bad experiences. Me personally, I am so glad I went with Mod Bargainss. My entire experience was nothing but a pleasure from start to finish. My sales rep was Alan and he was awesome throughout the entire process. Professional and courteous, and REAL, Didn't try to blow smoke and was a straight shooter the whole time, and to me, that was very refreshing. Not only did i purchase from them, I also live close enough that I had them install my upgrades as well. Again, nothing but a pleasure from start to finish. They even let me hang out in the install bay so that I could watch them transform my ordinary BMW to something I consider extraordinary. Not to supervise there work, but because I am genuinely interested in the work and I love to watch, so I thought it was really cool that they let me. I bought and had them install a set of 19' 19x8.5/ 19x9.5 staggard Avant Garde M310 wheels in Matte Black wrapped in Hankook Ventus v12 tires 245 30 19 and 275 35 19. I also had a set of H&R Sport Springs installed that lowered the car by 1.25 inches. I also had them upgrade the front grill with the al black M Sport grill. Everything came out beautifully and I couldn't be happier. I will def patron Mod Bargains for more upgrades in the future. If you are on the fence about going with them for your upgrade needs, dont be. Just do it ,you wont be disappointed.

They didn't recommend upgrading your shocks as well? Regardless looks great!

Thanks, I agree! The wheels and the lowering springs had a huge impact on the entire appearance of the car.

Looks great. Are you sure on the tire size "245 30 19 and 275 35 19"? Seems like 245/35 and 275/30 would make a little more sense.

Alan is a great guy. I go through him for some parts as he's a close friend of my friend. He gives me straight answers at all times.

I will upgrade more, to include shocks as I save the extra cash. As fun as upgrading is, it's certainly not cheap!

I don't know Alan other than on a professional level, but I have no doubt you are absolutely right! As I said before, it was a pleasure doing business with him!

Better to have saved up for the shocks before installing the springs. Now you have to pay for installation a. Second time when you get the shocks put on
