i love the lip, very few 5ers have it, its either an ACS lip or Alpina or Hamman and none of those actually flow with the stock pieces of the car

i was kinda iffy about it too for a bit but its really grown on me

Haha. Yup. There is gap and there will always be. I'm not lowering this car ever. I've resisted the temptation for almost 2 years now, so it's pretty easy to continue resisting at this point. It's a daily driver and i'd scrape the hell out of it if I lowered it.

Trust me...i know..lol. I've done it with other cars and regretted it. Luckily, the M Coupe is low enough stock so that it doesn't look terrible even without a drop.

Wha....?
What's wrong with scraping? It's a car, not a baby.
And you don't scrape the hell out of it if you learn how to drive it low.
It doesn't have to be slammed on it's face

You haven't seen my driveway...no matter what angle I approach it, I have less than 1 finger of room between my bumper and the driveway already. I know how to drive a lowered vehicle. Both my old Mitsubishi Eclipse and G35 Coupe were dropped. However, my residence has changed since then, so it's simply not practical or smart for me to drop this car. Especially since it doesn't bother me at all to leave it stock.
