I'm thinking of it, but I feel like since I got a diesel.. I didn't want to be mistaken for another 328i, please don't judge me.

The M-Performance brakes are probably one of the last things I want to do to my car, I have a Dinantronics Sport tune on mine now and I do find that I could use a little more stopping power. I have thought about just swapping the front brakes to stock 335i Brembo to just take the cheap route. With the pricing on the Yellow kit from that site, it isn't too bad at all though.
I went with 235/40/18 and 265/35/18, they are a little shorter than the OEM setup, but they were within the 1% for x-drive radius.

Re badges - I hear you on the 'd' - although bavauto.com have the shadowline numbers which I think looks cool!

Either way your wagon looks great!

I like the chunky look of the tires. I have 19's and when I was at the dealer this weekend I was kind of regretting not going with a taller sidewall. The OEM 275/35R19 rears on the M4's in the showroom looked nice. I have 275/30R19, and they look nice but the 35's are nice and fat looking. Not a ton of options when you have xDrive though. A 235/40R19 and 265/35R19 would probably have been nice looking.

Thank you! Your wagon looks great also with that OEM+ flavor.

I'm planning to get taller tires for my next set, xdrive does limit us for sure. For my next set of wheels I'm probably going to go with a square setup.

Got an alignment! Dialed in at -0.7 at the fronts and -2.8 in the rears. No rub at all!

I have to go get my alignment next Monday, as I am going to drop my car a little more on my KW V2's. Right now I have them set pretty high, but want to dial it in a little more.

Are those numbers your camber settings? I didn't realize there was much/any adjustment up front for more negative camber without aftermarket plates.

Would it be possible to post a print out of your alignment settings? Just curious, as I am trying to get everything lined up for when I go next week.

Car looks great though, wheels/tires look dialed in a fitment is nice

I'll see if I can dig up the copy, just in a pile of paperwork.

There is natural negative camber when you lower your car, the front has no adjustment so it stayed at -0.7, this was the setting after I lowered it and couldn't be changed.

Rear negative camber was -2.3 and -2.9, I had them adjust it to -2.8 on each side.

I thought that was the case, and if I lower a little more it should give me a little more negative camber up front. Eventually I am going to do camber plates, as I think the OEM top hat bearings are a little worn on my car.

I will keep those numbers in mind for when I get my alignment done, if you can find the sheet that would be great no worries if not that should answer my questions.

I agree on the shadow line badges on the back. I have a set in my eBay cart just itching to be bought. Only chrome left since I did the M3 grille swap as well.

Your car looks great, love the yellow calipers especially.
