Looks way better than stock. How're the stock shocks taking it?

Maybe get the Dinan shockware to match up with the lowered and stiffer springs?

You prefer lightweight wheels but buy some cheap, heavy replica cast wheels?

It's the M-Performance carbon fiber spoiler.

You can hate all you want, but the VMRs I'm getting are going to save me ~9 lbs in unsprung weight and have been used on the track already without issue (on an M235i as well). Thanks for your opinion though.

Looks good. I personally don't mind the bit of rake. My 135is has some as well and it's bone stock for now.

The stock stance was darn near perfect IMHO.
Front seems a little too low for my tastes but looking forward to seeing pics with the new wheels.
Love the M235i, congrats.
