Arrow My first bmw

Hi,
registered a couple of months ago since buying my very first bmw.
Long time japanese car owner: toyota, honda, mitsu, mazda.
Changed careers and after a year in the new role got myself a decent raise.
Bought myself a 2017 330i xDrive Sport line.
Loving it to death right now. My only bad experience is hitting the worst pothole of my life 5 days into getting it which destroyed my driver side front tire (bridgestone potenza's) and benting my rim. $700 later and im good again lol

Agreed lol
Looking into Dinan springs and bump stops
I read on here that H&Rís are a bit bouncy and as much as I want to eliminate wheel well gap, I donít want to ruin the smooth ride. (Montreal roads are the worst)

Invest in a set of coilovers with a dampening system. I also didnít want to lose the smooth ride so I bought ST XA coils. Best decision. Since you live up north, you can raise when you want and drop it once the snow is gone.

isnt that the truth lol... between the horrific road conditions, the money hungry cop quotas for tickets for the dumbest things, medieval language laws, abuse of salt in winter and beyond corrupt local gvmnt, I couldnt wait to gtfo (yes i was one of the ones that constantly threatened to leave :P), finally did and now i'm on the west coast, best...decision.....EVER.

I used to go to dawson college and hung around DT all the time in my younger years, having a car DT was a pita, i dont envy you :P, at the time i lived in NDG, most of the time i'd just bike over to school\work (worked on st.laurent street, north of sherbrooke)... taking a car was both risky for the car and the wallet hehe.

post some shots of the 666m's when you mount them!
