Not a bad video.

He mentioned something about M Performance Springs? Are those available?

The wheels definitely look great as well!

I'm torn on them. I *think* they're probably pretty cool looking but aren't they wearing wayyyyyy too much rubber. That tirewall reminds me of an F150.

Sidewall is good for many things.

I've had the wheels in my hand, they felt pretty light as they are forged, unlike the standard ones, I believe.

When I asked my SA about ordering a set for my comp, he said itís for non-comp models only. The only cars Iíve seen it installed on is FE and non-comp. Iím guessing that guy was fed wrong info.

realeom.com says your guy was right, but BMW has disabled access to their official ETK on the German website so I cannot verify as realoem's database is from 3/2019 so there could have been changes.

The springs were released before the Comp model so BMW had likely developed them on a base model at that time and did not bother with approving them for Competition models in Europe. Just like the wheels are M8-only wheels too, but they have the same specs as any other F90 wheels.

The comp sits lower than the base model, Iím guessing the M Performance springs lower it to approximately comp levels, hence why theyíre not compatible with the comp model.

Sidewall not bad imo I always disliked the rubberband tire look.. a little meat on the tire doesn't hurt especially for guys that hit triple digits often.

Why would more sidewall be better for higher speeds?
