I'm going to go easy for 500 miles (per BMW...) then I'll report back. In that timeframe I will have the DINAN springs & bumpstops, BBS CI-R wheels and Michelin PS4 tires installed so the car will be ready to rip by then.
Green with envy!!! Waiting for my 340i to arrive. Your mods are right in line with my plans. Car looks awesome!

Decided to complete the interior and pulled the trigger on the M Performance steering wheel. Definitely finishes off the look.

Washed it up last night and went for a 100 mile drive early this morning in rural Pennsylvania. Ripped through some mountain passes... this car continues to impress me.

I thought about going Dinan but I'm more intrigued by the AWE system. The MPPSK would be nice, but a tune - even a factory one - is only going to add more stress to the engine. I would like to keep this car for the next 7-10 years.

Maybe I should just keep the stock system a while longer...?
7-10 years? Won't happen. I love our cars as much as anybody else, but that's not realistic

It's solid... nice and firm, especially in Sport+. No huge difference in Comfort mode, which is nice for daily driving. You can tell the springs we're designed for the car and it's OEM suspension which is a huge plus... highly recommended.
