Actually we just did a few things and Im satisfied.


Here's my list for reference; see if anything tempts you:
  1. Enabled No Dazzle High Beam Assistance
  2. iDrive console display retains brightness regardless of ambient light conditions—always bright
  3. Deactivated double-horn (engine running) when locking
  4. Removed the window roll-up interruption when the door is opened
  5. Enabled rolling the windows up with the FOB and Comfort Access (even when the engine is running)
  6. Enabled mirrors folding even when the engine is running
  7. Fixed passenger mirror tilt angle (default 5A, coded 30 or thereabouts)
  8. Close trunk from the FOB
  9. Immediate trunk close when lifting the rocker switch (vs. having to hold it in lifted position)
  10. Disabled Legal Disclaimers
  11. Added Car > Settings > Exterior Lighting > 5 Blinks option to the menu for tapping the turn indicator stalk
  12. Increased max charging USB port current from default 1000mA to 2100mA
  13. Display the whole message (vs default 3 lines only) when car is in motion
  14. Removed speed locks and distance restrictions placed when car is in motion:
    • - playing media content (video in motion)
    • - pairing a BT device
    • - consulting the built-in owner’s manual
    • - consulting messages under Office
    • - user guide
    • - iDrive touch controller
  15. Ambient lighting:
    • Bronze > Red top layer/ Blue overhead and bottom
    • White/ Bronze > Blue top layer/ Red overhead and bottom
that would be awesome

I'm seriously considering switching to improve the ride quality, my back can't take much more of these FL roads.
So here is the probably the best pic to indicate the drop with KW; its with the engine off. I keep posting pics where the ground is slightly off or there is a curb which skews the car. Further when the car is off it "appears" just slightly lower based on my finger test.

Remember you have wider tires (right??) on the same profile so the gap will be less. I can take more pics today if you like. But without a doubt and not apples to apples but confidence is high; KW will provide the better comfort. The M550i H&R's on the F90 were brilliant looking but boy they could compress and rebound like a jack hammer at times. These springs endure and absorb better as they are progressive. Its worth the extra coin here for sure.



Drop looks perfect to my eyes! Gorgeous

Damn.. fckin baller!!

I didn't read past the first page so apologies if I missed.. but in terms of a black car I was the same way until I had my BSM G30 ceramic coated. Game changer for sure and SO much easier to keep clean.

Amazing car. Finally, a GT car with the perfect stance. Well done. Most of the featured cars lately have all been slammed.

Great looking M8 with a tasteful set of mods. If it helps at all I think the drop is perfect.

Dig the interior and the yellow calipers too.

Looks awesome! Have those same rims on my m340 and am going to have them painted all black this spring, similar to yours.

Super clean and crisp! Hope you're enjoying it!

That's a beautiful car. But are your tiny little "m" stickers on your wheels missing?
