Yesterday I got my M5 lowereded with H&R Springs.

Now the car is 35mm closer too the ground :hihi: , and it drives great. The perfect combinations in my eyes to become a "great" look and not too loose comfort :noSMG: .

I'll post pictures later :1: .

Congrats!

I know how you feel. I just lowered my car with Hartge springs.
30mm front and 20mm rear.

The beast is one step closer to being perfect :hihi:

Excellent!

The sideshots really shows the difference.

Looks terrific - the wheels look bigger. How has the ride changed? Must be somewhat stiffer, especially with 4 people in the car.

The look of the car is awesome, BUT will the lowering springs have a negative effect on the adjustable suspension? Since the 'active' suspension is designed to work with a specific spring height/stiffness, will the new lowering springs serve to disturb the modes of the adjustable suspension, and could it lead to early adjustable strut failure; (very costly since I doubt BMW will cover premature strut failure when the OEM springs are removed).

I doubt that the shockabsorbers will fail " early " due to the 30mm lower springs.

If they're anything like the E34 shock absorbers, they're gonna fail and cost exorbinate amounts of money to replace so H&R kits and coilovers will be put onto the E60's anyways.

Of course, we're all hoping that doesn't become the case!

Yesterday I've tryed with four of my friends, absolutely no problem :thumbsup: . For the ride, the steering feels much better the car is much more agile :hihihi: .

Maybe the absorbers will fail earlier but the car is definitively too "high" :eek: , that would be ok for an SUV but not for a sportscar like the M5 :M5launch: .
