Stunning! These have to be my favourite alloys for the F3X.

Just took delivery of my 328i X-Drive M-Sport. Tint, drop and wheels to come soon! Estoril Blue over black leather. Dynamic handling, Adaptive M Suspension, M sport brakes, Premium, Tech, Lighting, Driver Assistance, Cold Weather, etc. Pretty much every option but the self-parking. Ain't nobody got time fo dat. I lament the loss of my manual transmission as this is my first ever automatic, but the paddles are fun and I'll eventually get some kind of vintage resto project with a manual. Tint, drop and rims to come soon. Just debadged it this morning.

^ looks great and awesome color choice.

Do you have any pics straight form the side? I'm curious how level the cross bars are. I take it they're the OEM bars?

Springs and wheels finally came in this week... a quick iPhone shot below. Really really happy with the setup (H&R F31 Xdrive springs, and 20x9 20x10 Niche Essen's).

Looks great, but you can't just leave us with one picture.

Any other additional pics on a level surface? I'm curious to see how well the springs leave the car levels, so if you have a fender to ground measurement from the top of the fender wells, that would be appreciated.

What are the wheel and tire specs?

Still waiting for the boat to arrive...









Probably should have tried to take more shots over the pond, but weather wasn't cooperating and it was too much fun to drive than stop.

Thx! I know, I know... I need to take some better pics, but my car was broken into so still trying to get all of the window and paint work taken care of. When I get it back i'll take some proper pics with a proper camera.

Initial measurements immediately after spring install on a somewhat level surface are as follows Front Left (27.75 before, 26.125 after), Front Right (27.5 before, 25.875 after), Back Left (26.625 before, 25.625 after), Back Right (26.625 before, 25.75 after). I'm sure they'll settle a bit more in the coming weeks, but it's roughly level. The back appears to be ever so slightly lower than the front on some occasions, but it also seems amplified by the beefier wheel/tire setup in the rear.

Wheels are Niche Essen 20x9 et35 front and 20x10 et40 rear. Tires are 245/35 front and 275/30 rear. It's very close in the rear, but no rubbing as of yet and that's regularly driving with 100lb+ german shepherd and 20lb mini aussie in the rear most of the time.

Springs are H&R Sport for F31 Xdrive (28832-2). Really happy with them... saw notes of people talking about sport springs with 20's being unbearable, definitely not the case for me. Amazing how much this whole setup transformed the car!

A few shots taken by another member from a recent cars & coffee (again, dogs were in the back of the car when pics were taken):

Great, thanks for sharing some more pics. The stance of the car looks great. My only gripe about the springs is that they provide more negative rake for my liking but it may be a combination of the the front tires having a slightly higher sidewall vs the rears and like you said, the rears are beefier and more aggressive. Though based on your pics, the rake isn't as bad as it is on other wagons.

What tire brand are you running?

I definitely agree - if I had my choice i'd have the front a tad lower than the rear, especially because i'm typically carrying cargo of some sort. They're General GMAX AS-03.
