Most of the night was spent methodically capturing every aspect with our photographer, and fitting the first of many modifications to come. Wheel measurements were recorded, and a beautiful set of 19" Hyper Bronze Volk Racing TE37 SL wheels were fitted in place of the OEM 19s along with H&R Super Sport springs.

Why is no one answering the spring question? I have seen multiple threads where people are asking if these are M3/M4 specific springs H&R springs or 435 springs and the vendors aren't answering the question.

They are 4 series H&R Super Sport Springs, these are temporary for now.


I mentioned this in my wheel fitment thread as well.

There will be other options other than springs very soon, I have spoken to several coil over manufacturers concerning the M3/M4 development.

I've answered it multiple times. They are from a 435. Same as what's on my project car.

Gorgeous. Personally, I probably would have gone with gunmetal wheels. But this looks so aggressive, very nice!

The pressed graphite would have been my choice as well.
