Hey all,

Hope everyone has been doing well. Well, i was wondering if anyone has thought about lowering their cars? I was driving on the highway the other day in my E55 and i saw a
fellow driver driving a black E55. Everything was kept stock except that i noticed his ride height was lowered by about .5 inches. It looked fantastic. It got rid of the space between the fender and the massive AMG wheels. Honestly, it made the wheels look much bigger. I was wondering if any of you have thought about lowering your M5's or E55's? Do you think that would be a good idea? After seeing that E55, i've really been giving it a lot of thought. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers and happy motoring all!

Paul

Paul,

The M5 is already pretty low.. I've been experiencing front bumber abrasions while driving into Manhattan garages with a steep grade. I don't think I can have the luxury of lowering my car.

I agree with Kelvin, I don't thing the M5 really needs to be lowered for aesthetics and handling performance is more than adequate for the street. Stock set-up is a good compromise between ride comfort and preformance. I might reconsider for track use.

As for the E55, I would go with the AMG Euro springs/shock set-up. I did this on my C36 -- the result was to eliminate the ugly gap(so the car looked just like Euro models) and ride quality was not compromised.
