...and a great angle at that.

Been debating between the M exhaust or M suspension. Not sure if I can do both, but leaning towards the suspension since the stock exhaust is very good anyway.

Metrickid, not sure if I asked, but did you go manual or DCT?

This car doesn't have any bad angles!

The car sounds great stock so if you could only get one at this time I would get the suspension and then do the exhaust if you really feel the need later on. I have a DCT.

Yeah, think I will go the suspension route. Plus, it has more functionality to it than the exhaust note anyway.

The car looks stunning, does the suspension come with any recommended settings for damping

I agree. Metrickid's pic is one of my favorites of the M2. Big reason is the black spoiler looks best on white cars, and the suspension lowering. Beautiful!

Thanks! Yes, both height and settings have a suggested road setting and the installation instructions also include a two page guide on how to adjust it and how that will affect handling, grip and traction.

Could you put mild spacers on the car at that height, or would it be too tight?

The rear tire (rim protector) is basically flush with the fender in the rear at this height. My guess just for looks would be 5-10 mm front and 5 mm rear, but if that fits is another question (turning the wheel etc).

I have wheels ordered so I haven't played around with spacers.
