▀▄ eas | The F3x Showroom - an ongoing journal

Like our popular thread on F80post and M2 post, I thought I'd start a running thread to showcase all the F3x platforms that we've seen come through our shop.

To start off, This Black Sapphire Metcallic F36 435i receives the BMW M performance Big Brake Kit sitting on H&R Springs.

Modifications:
BMW M Performance Big Brake kit
BMW Performance Exhuast system
H&R Sport lowering Springs

Related to pedal feel as the ABS controller now knows the optional equipment is installed in the vehicle's HO-WORT profile.

That makes sense, thanks for the information. It was always something I wondered

Dinan springs look good. I tried H&R and Eibach springs on my F36 and while the front is OK (even too low with a bit of rubbing with the H&Rs), the rear always seems to sit a bit too high.



Based on your pictures the fender gap is nicely consistent between the front & rear with the Dinan kit

Is it me or does the Dinan seem a lot lower than expected? I thought they were one of the least advertised drops? That looks lower than the H&R setup above?

I find it difficult to appreciate the mods without 'before' pictures.

Wow that looks great. Specs on the LMs?

Also as stated before that white 4series on the dinan suspension looks lower than I thought as well. I too thought dinan didn't drop as much as the H&Rs did. Might have to rethink my spring choice and stick with Dinans since I went shockware with my car anyways.

Keep up the posts guys!
