Time for some little enhancements

As winter slowly makes its exit and thanks to the awesome eas thread showing their customers M5s and M6s I've decided on a few minor mods to spruce up the M5 for the summer.

A little background, got the car late September 2016 (July build) and since have done minor stuff to it:

- Xpel on full hood, full front bumper, mirrors, headlights, and side skirts
- Opti-Coat Pro Plus
- Opti-Coat Leather Guard
- Got it coded to unlock some features
- Dashcam
- AWE tuning axle back touring exhuast
- Charcoal filter delete
- Winter wheels/tires

Now I want a little change so here's what I'm thinking, pretty standard, nothing too crazy:

- M performance rear diffuser (if anyone is selling theirs hmu)
- Paint my wheels satin black
- Need to change my summer tires and thinking of going a bit wider (275/305) just want to make sure this will be fine...thoughts?
- Undecided on H&R springs. Don't want to negatively impact driving dynamics and get rubbing with the wider tires but really liking the drop on the cars that have them...
- Tint windows

Any thoughts/feedback is welcomed, thanks!

Nice bro. Get the Eibach springs or Vogtland, excellent drop with both and much better comfort than H&R's.

Definitely go lower and H&R springs for these car work really well. I'd recommend lowering first and let it settle in and then get new tires that fit properly.

KW HAS all day; better than either Eibach or H&R IMHO. Plus you can adjust to achieve the exact ride height to suit your tastes and set-up. Worth the additional cost.
