My current car is the first Iíve left stock in 18 years of driving.

Iíve previously lowered 2 F80ís and after driving the stock 4CS I just couldnít do it. It drives better than my previous 2 on AC Schnitzer springs, not only that, but I can hammer down lumpy B roads and never worry about that gorgeous front lip.

Yes, aesthetically Iíd love to drop it, but 7 months in now I canít see it happening.

Itís actually quite purposeful like stock

If I hit any road dips at speed depending what they are I scrap the front under compression, on railroad tracks, etc and of course you have to be careful in parking lots. But IMHO this is the way the car should look
Beautiful- this is exactly what a BSM M4 should look like. What wheel/tire setup are you running with those springs?

you don't stop lowering your car because you're old, but you're old because you stop lowering your car :P

The BMW MP HAS Kit lets you adjust the height - YOU you don't need to slam the car at ma sittings just doing 25MM will make big difference. Most people don't know they are doing. Two finger gap is perfect if you don't know what you are doing -

I run ÷hlins suspension and i have 90mm clearance at the front lip. Ihave made my own skidplate under the M performance splitter. It's the same since the car left the factory. If you think about how you drive it's no problem. I don't understand how people can brake 3,4,5 splitters in a row..
