That is a perfect ride height. And those spacers make this thing look so flush. Excellent choices. I dig your style man

The color alone is a tasteful mod (if thats what we can call it) to me ... it differentiates other 5 series cars much easier than wheels and cosmetics.

Thanks guys. I love the look of the car stock but the little things make it pop. Glad most agree. And best of all pretty inexpensive (except for the exhaust - but worth it....) I am not a good photographer so it looks better in real life IMO. (Rob can verify)

Very clean.

I'm glad you're one of the handful of members willing to share information. In this case, spacer/wheel offsets.

Very nice.. I like the clean de-chromed look.. How happy are you with the race exhaust and how expensive was it to buy and install?

Maybe we can choose a picturesque spot to meet and I'll bring my camera. We can get a few shots of blue and silver

Very tasteful indeed BarryB - subtle, just right like warm porridge.

Can I please ask where you purchased the spacers and which springs you applied? Are they the H&R sport springs Part no. 50468? (1" inch front, 0.6" rear)?

Real nice Barry, glad I ordered the spacers. How much of an affect on cabin sound does the exhaust have?
