Awesome!

I'd love a set of these but don't want them staggard because I'm xDrive. Need to sort out a way of getting 4 of the narrower front wheels without having to buy them new. I feel like sourcing only the 19x8.5 fronts will be a challenge as people usually like to sell wheels individually or in sets of 4.
Fronts are 9J on these.

And yeah people tend to sell individually or as a set, unless you want to buy one at a time it may be difficult

New lip needed

Imagine if I had the means to raise the car before hitting that speed bump ?

I should just get coilovers as I never raise it above my dumb low drive height 😂

Bmw advertise 24 miles

I was getting 16 miles from a full charge.

After installing the air suspension with all of its electrics and compressor I now get only 12 miles !

Luckily I work only 3 miles from home

Got a replacement the same as this on the way. Was tempted to leave until spring then get something different but got a deal on Black Friday for another cheap replica so when I smash it again I'm not too sad at the cost.

As suspected, the 275/35 would not allow me to tuck when aired out so I'll be going for a narrower tyre front and back when funds allow.

Also noticed that my front discs and pads need to be changed soon. Found some decent priced "upgrades" from M-tech with a slotted and dimpled disc which I may go for in the new year.

Good idea, the m performance rotors definitely look more aggressive. Alternatively you could go with an aftermarket brand like stoptech that has the added benefit of a black coated/pre-painted rotor hat which will prevent rust from accumulating in that area over time.

I feel your pain, I've gone through 2 front lips so far and in the market for a third, should really just learn my lesson and not get one at all

Indeed, which is why I can never justify oem or cf for a part I'm probably going to end up breaking

fully agree on that one, this one was only £87 on sale and looks really decent, made from ABS not the fibre glass like the last one appears to be made from.

Pic of the underside of the new one, looks like it could take a few scrapes

Hopefully get time to mount them on the car this weekend weather dependent.
