Happy new 1M owner!

Hope you enjoy your new car.

Any modification in the pipe line?

Grills are ordered and fitted through BMW before I get the car, one thing done. Like the look of the IND products and also that Akra looks awesome . LUX angels also make it look at lot better! Big list building up, costs a lot though!!

The grills will look brill.

As far as i can work out, the LUX angel bulbs are brilliant. That is an upgrade on my list too.

What about Eibach springs? They improve the ride / handling and the heights are bob on! I will try and find a photo of Chris ABP's AW 1M with these on for you.

Then its the debate as to fit springs on standard shocks, or go with a coilover setup.....

The Eibach springs are designed to work with the original shockabsorbers. Nice ride, brilliant handling and the height is great too. Coilovers can be harsh and noisy.

I will get a photo of Chris's for you.

This is the 1M we fitted with Eibach lowering springs using original shockabsorbers.

The wheels are 19".
