Below are photos of my 335i M-Sport in Alpine White with Aluminum Hexagon Trim and Black Dakota Leather.

I had IND install H&R Sport Springs, spacers and painted front reflectors. I can't say enough good things about the IND team - true professionals, careful attention to detail and great customer service.

Overall, I'm very pleased. No rubbing even with a full car. I have always liked the OEM + look.

Factory Options:
Technology
Premium
Driver Assisstance
Dynamic Handling
Sport Auto AT
403M 19" wheels
HK Sound
Heated seats

Modifications:
M Performance Rear Spoiler Painted AW
M Performance Exhaust
Gloss black front grilles
IND Body painted front reflectors
35% tint
Macht Schnell Spacers (12mm F, 15mm R)
H&R Sport Springs (Pt # 28878-2)

Since I'll likely get some questions - here's my feedback of the suspension after install -

I have the adaptive (EDC) suspension and Dynamic Handling Pkg. There is no discernible difference in bounciness or stiffness in either Comfort or Sport mode. No tire rubbing to report with stock tires sizes. The chassis feels well sorted and is able to soak up bumps nicely. It certainly looks much better lowered, as well. I plan to get the Dinan Shockware installed which further improves compression and dampening. This Dinan EDC software is receiving rave reviews. From what I hear, this is how the suspension should have been tuned in Munich.

Comfort Mode -
Noticed that the ride actually felt "smoother" in comfort mode, due to the springs dialing out some of the float that was associated with the stock setup. The ride felt a touch bouncy in this mode on the drive home after install, but still every bit as compliant over bumps.

Sport Mode -
Ride quality felt about 90% as compliant over pavement imperfections and bumps. On hard cornering, body lean was reduced a bit. Body float is slightly reduced; this is most noticeable with quick steering inputs, pavement waves (especially mid-corner), and at high speeds. The car feels a bit more planted as a result.

Locals representing here!! I am over in Lake Orion. I just got my F30 2 weeks ago. I already have a bunch of parts staking up in the garage. I just received my brand new Michelin Pilot Super Sports last night, and I ordered new wheels yesterday. I have a set of H&R's ready to go on, along with the Dinan bumpstop kit, and I will definitely be going with the Dinan Shockware at the end. Your car is looking great so far, and I look forward to seeing more progress.

Glad to hear there are a few enthusiasts in the area. I'll be on the lookout for you guys. We'll have to PM and sync up for a quick meet sometime.

Thanks again.

No - the shop and distribution facilities are located in the North suburbs outside of Downtown Chicago.

Roughly 1.2" F, 1.0" R. Yes - an alignment is necessary after installing any lowering springs or coilover suspension parts.
