Finally got my 437M installed on all four wheels. Need to adjust the coilover height in the rear, as I need another 1/2" or so of clearance.

Running 235/40 on fronts and have 265/35 PSS on the back to be within compliance...just heard that the transfer cases are super sensitive.

Don't worry, x-drive is not that sensitive.

That's not surprising as your tires are almost 1" different in height, they sound like M2 spec tire, not M3/M4 (not that those would be any better).

One of my past F31s, we run 235/40 and 275/35 on 437M wheels.
Great fit even before lowering, and absolutely zero issues with TC. They're very close in dia.

There's some peaches on here for sure. Convenient too, I had 8 bags of soil, grass seed, potting mix in mine last night!

Got her somewhat cleaned up and took a few spring shots...thinking about switching from BC Racing coilovers to KW V1 or Street comfort setup.

Anyone have experience with either - or another good alternative that wont break the bank? Mostly for daily driving...with an occasional track day or two potentially.

Just picked up a new to me F31 this weekend. A perfect mate for my F80. Going to do some light mods to the F31 in the future.
