Im currently lower so parking like this isn't possible anymore.

It's a pain in the ass to jack the car up because I can't access the front center jack point.

H&R race on my 330i ZHP with 18x8.5 square hammans. Can still get the arms on my rack at work to slide under it so working on it is easy (thats how I know I am not slammed, lol!) If you go with race springs, know that your stock shocks won't last long so plan on getting shocks/ struts at the same time if possible (stockers ride nice while they last though!)

Functionally low. Fenders cover the top 1/2 of the tires so there isn't any "wheel gap" but have no interest in the fenders covering most of the tire (or any part of the wheel). With the front lip and low skirts, it makes it somewhat impractical but I can still get up driveways and out of parking garages. The whole "scrape culture" is completely lost on me

I found with mine, that I have to use my factory jack to lift one side high enough to get my regular jack underneath lol. It's a pain, but not I can do about it.

That car looks great but would look SO much better with MTECH bumpers. it would be perfect. What exhaust is that?
