530e M Sport w/ 20" AG M650, H&R Springs, Vinyl

Recently installed my H&R Sport springs on the 530e, along with a set of 20x9/10.5 AG M650 wheels in Machined Silver paired with Vredestein Ultrac Vorti tires in 245/275
http://avantgardewheels.com/m650.php

Also did some gloss black vinyl accents: roof, mirrors, and door handles.

Other mods are carbon fiber trunk spoiler and antenna cover

Love how it came out!

Looks good. Reminds me of my F10! Still deciding whether to go the same route when my G30 arrives.

What suspension were you on prior to the drop - 704 M Sport or DHP?

Looks so much better after the drop.
What kind of rear spoiler is that? Reminds me of the OEM cf f10 spoiler.

Thanks guys! Therse a few different versions out for the G30, theres the 2 smaller OEM style ones, and then they have these aftermarket Performance style and, V-style, and M5 style. This ones the performance style I believe.

Just the standard M sport suspension I'm pretty sure, I dont have the DHP

Agreed! This is the 1st thing I could find to lower the G30, dont think they're actually available in the US just yet, I had to get someone to ship them in. Wish they went lower.... I know Megan has some coils coming out in 1-2 months, but I couldnt wait that long so these will have to do for now.
Been following your build as well, really impressive!

So the 20s look pretty small so I decided to try out some 22x9/10.5 AG M580s with 255/295 tires. Worked out better than expected! No rubbing at all and decreased the wheel gap which is great.

Haha, yeah they're giant, I didnt think it would work but we tested and it was an easy ifit.
The ride actually isnt that bad at all, much better than I expected, not even a much of a difference from the 20"s I had before. The tires are Conti DWS so they ride pretty smooth.

Main noticable difference is they make my slow 530e even slower, and I need to brake earlier due to the wheels being heavier, o well!

Thanks! Let me know when you're ready to take these 22s off my hands

Installed my carpool sticker. It's not pretty but it saved me 10 minutes to work today!

Installed the 3pc M Performance style front lip from RW Carbon yesterday. They just got them in stock and was really impressed with the fit and finish. Pretty much perfect
They have them in stock and ready to ship at a fraction of the cost of oem if anyone is interested

Looks nice.
Can you install the lip without the 2 pcs on the side of the bumper? Cuz I don?t like that part.
I ordered them 6 months ago from BMW and never shows up. Their loss.

That's a good question, I didn't try it but I asked RW and they said it should be possible. Don't see why not. Could look pretty cool, kind of like a hamman style lip. Try it out!

Hmm I would be interested in a lip with out the side pieces above the lip. Will check site to see if this is available. I did notice they sell just the side pieces.
