I'm scared to ask, what's going on there? Spring install?

Are those coilovers for the F10? From the looks of it your M5 is a CP? We need some context!

:-P

No major work done, just thought the shot of 3 white Ms on the lifts was way too cool not to share.

I had H&R sports installed and tell you the truth, so fart I'm a bit disappointed with the handling over my stock CP springs. The car is a bit lower (need to give it a bit time to settle, 500+ miles), but the handling IMHO is suffering.

Big Thanks to my boys over @ SONIC MS for an outstanding customer service and work ethics. Great new facility as well! If you're from Bay Area, this the only shop I would go to for tuning needs.

I'll follow up with another write up after I have more time to toy around w these springs.

Give the springs a little time to settle in, the car should drop even more as they do. Once they do the car will feel a lot more planted and firm around corners. A lot less body roll. I love the Stiff feeling in sport plus that comes with them.

Did you go from CP to H&R sport as well?

Seems a little odd to pay for comp package and then swap springs out. If you are really after performance, I think you may want to go KW.

If you stick with the H&R though, I will very happily purchase your OEM comp springs
