Looks great! Not sure if it's the angle but in the last pic the drop in the rear looks to be a bit more than the front so the tire gaps look a bit odd

I agree, I would raise the rear up a bit IMO. You're tucking more tire in the back than in the front.

How's handling with the setup and are you planning on getting an alignment once you've settled on your final ride height?

Car looks awesome by the way and I like the house too!

Thanks so much - rear is sitting slightly lower - Doing the common reverse rake BMW thing... I might raise the rear 0.15"

I agree! I think the rear needs to go up 0.15 - 0.20"
Alignment for sure in about 200km once it settles more and final height is achieved.

Thanks for the compliment - Car handles great - exact as OEM but no wheel gap

Looks awesome! My only suggestion is to get rid of the reverse rake by lowering the front or raising the rear depending on how much you rub.

I’m interested in getting a set of as BCs as well. Did you get Swift springs too? I’m curious to get your opinion how they ride.

Totally agree - If the front doesnt settle more I'll raise the back 0.20"
I did not get the Swifts - They ride great. Dampening was set right in the middle at first - then I adjusted 3 clicks to the harder side and its absolutely perfect right now.

BC did ship me the wrong top mounts for the M2 COMP so make sure you clearly specify its a M2 COMP - they might ignore the COMP part but make sure you say it over and over lol - Over all a good experience and love the ride minus having the wrong parts sent on the first attempt

Mine sits the same on the BCs with Swift springs. Its lower than I ever thought id be able to safely run on the street as a daily driver. If you take a measurement the ride height might actually be the same despite the rear looking lower. I have experienced some bottoming at speed but nothing I can't live with. Your car looks soooo good. Any input on dampening adjustments? I am running 18 clicks from soft front, 20 in the rear. Might go up to 23 out back, I find the ride quality improves the stiffer I turn the adjusters

Too low for me. Once the wheels arenít even close to concentric in the arches it looks wrong.

Raising the rear ever so slightly would make It look perfect. Very nice ride. First mod I always do on my car is a drop. Congrats.

This. Raise up the back a bit at least. But I'd probably raise the front a hair and the back a decent amount.
