You may not like the look, but don't hate on suspension modifications. If they used quality coil overs, it will handle better.

Quality coil overs does not automatically equate to better. Who told you that? Good handling is about integrating the components together to achieve some kind of desired compromise of mechanical grip, ride, turn in, compliance etc. Dropping the car 2-3" like they have done will surely result in almost no compliance and the back end is going to come out if you hit a bump mid-corner. These folks are concerned with STYLE, not with handling. Anyone can slap springs/coils on a car and claim it handles better. Where are the track numbers and test results????

Studie use quality products (in this case, coils) and have done a lot of R&D with a lot of e92 m3's when it comes to handling. Why would a well known tuner upgrade a car and compromise it's handling in the end? That's Studie's purpose. To make the 1M handle better than stock.

Anyways, that 1M looks really good with the BBS ri-d.

Baller wheels for sure! Imagine $2500 for each wheel? That's $10K for a set!

If I had the money, I would definitely rock it. You have quality, strong, light wheels wrapped into one. No questions asked.

I think that BBS makes the ZCP wheels for the 1M/M3, so a clean BBS design will often look close to an OEM wheel.

And, ain't no chance of those BBS ri-d wheels breaking or whatever. I'm sure they're stronger than OEM.

I have heard that there are currently two VO 1M in Japan.

This is the other one.

I agree that I wouldn't have dropped them THAT low. But let's not forget that BMW specs these to street comfort mode, not track mode.

I would have also gotten rid of those chrome trimmed kidney grills.

Well, guess I`m the only one here;


-Don`t like the weels, they look to fragile IMO, the massive bulgy 1M on fragile looking rims is off balance

-Don`t like the drop, too low front and back...........a good drop IMO is where the space on both sides from the wheel equals the space from wheeltop to the fender......

Nothing beats the original thusfar, even tuners like ACS can`t match it.....little bit lower on the front.....and ready you are....

Those spokes look like they will snap under hard cornering. . .but I'm sure they won't. Looks super lightweight.

Any chance you have the part number for the diffuser and did you have to modify the Msport bumper? My dealer just ordered the wrong part for the 3rd time. Wtf! I have an e90 335 with Msport package. I want the 335is look, why is this so difficult! Can anybody chime in
