Lord Vader has arrived...

Now off for the tint, ppf, ceramic coating, carbon fiber bits for the steering wheel and shifter, spacers, lowering springs (H&R for F90 - wife wouldn't let me go lower) and reflector delete...

I do feel a bit melancholy accepting this machine during this time. Be safe and take care of your families! I will love this Beast!!

Lord Vader!

I have a mov cold start video but have no idea how to upload.. HELP!

Wife said no. Thinks speed bumps in our neighborhood will be a pain in the ass. I agree, 550i H&R look better. Is the ride quality that much worse?

The way you took the original picture makes your M5 look like it had the rear end of a Ferrari FF for a second!! 😍😅

I thought the same thing!

I had to zoom in to make sure that it was an M5.

So you bought it and immediately swapped out the springs?
You getting different sheet metal next? Swapping the seats?

Go with the H&R 550i springs ... the ride height is spot on and the ride quality feels very OEM. Read the feedback on these forums and you can get a better idea of the differences.

I understand that the look is better. Too low for my wife's taste and we have too many speed bumps in the neighborhood. The F90 springs will look just fine.

I always modify my cars new. This is the first time I'm not tuning it out the gate.

Is your car M5C? If so, you may want to leave the suspension as-is as the H&R F90 springs are only minimally lower.

I know. Like the look on the lowered springs. Would've gone lower had my wife not stopped me.
