and so begins the conversation of bags versus coils and how an m3 is meant to be mostly stock..

In no way did I say that an M3 is meant to be stock. If I had an M3 you better believe I'd upgrade the suspension. There's plenty of debate no doubt and air suspension has shown some good results but at the end of the day you have to ask yourself why high-end sports cars developed for handling and speed stick with coils. Performance aside, for me the "slammed" look is just not my taste. I probably worded my comment too harshly.....either way OP has a clean looking car and if it were raised a little it would be perfect in my eyes.

Quality bags for the win. I would install them on my car in a heart beat, but too bad the quality setup is quite pricey.
What setup are you using?

Edit: Yeah, found performance series kit priced at almost 5k. http://www.airliftperformance.com/ve...ies-1999-2006/

Ah ok, thought you were driving around slammed like that.

Sorry guys, didn't mean to open a can of worms and derail the thread. One of my buddies had an air suspension on his 5-series, though not airlift, and frankly the ride was garbage compared to my old 545i on coilovers. That was a couple years ago and since then I guess I've been jaded. I know he didn't fork out near the cost of what today's quality kits cost so looking back I'm sure that was a factor as well.
