Few pictures of my AW M5 with HRE P40s

Haven't posted any new pictures of the car since the ED trip thread. Here are few of the updated pics. Car has HRE P40S 20" / IND PKG / 3D Roof Spoiler / H&R spring.

I just recently removed the H&R spring and put the stock springs back..(I will post another thread to talk about this)

OEM CF trim was also installed. More pics will be posted for the trims.

Looks fantastic!!! Rims really set it off. I personally prefer 20s over 21s, so good choice. Care to elaborate on the H&Rs? Did they cause you any problems?

Thanks. For the H&R spring, it was not a mechanic problem but a problem from wife.

I love the drop of the H&R, but not too in love with its ride. The car rides much harsher than I expected. I could live with the ride, but wife can't stand it. With a 9 months old baby and upcoming in-laws from Taiwan in few months, I decided to swap back to stock. Car rides much better now.

Very nice - everytime I see Alpine white i either want to change my order for it, or it reinforces my decision. Seeing alpine white cleaned up in the right lighting just makes me happy that i picked that for my color. Well done! Also, your pics reinforce my choice on a lighter colored after mkt wheel.

Great looking M5 with some very nice wheels.

Nice and flush fitment in the rear too.

I agree with you, especially when the H&R's have time to settle. It's a little harsh but man the feeling you have driving is unreal. You feel like you have so much control, had a friend in the car yesterday and he was amazed at how planted it was to the road. Drove my s5 as well, while mine was in the shop and it just felt sloppy.

New wheels

Those wheels look perfect with the white which is the look I want with my car. Same color.

I live in SF. Haven't had any problems yet with my P40SC wheels. I make it a point to learn where the issues are and avoid them.
