Nice, looks good. What do you have on now?

So are the springs just more for looks and stance of the M5? Colorado roads are not fun to drive on too many pot holes and crappy road conditions. When I have M mode on with EDC at 2 you feel everything! I only have it on if I know the road is smooth and nice.

I would've kept the springs in.

Stock ride height is terrible... uneven gap front to back

It definitely lowers it, it's also about 25% more firm, so 0 in EDC with HR's feels more like EDC 1 (more like 1.2-1.3) and EDC 1 feels more like EDC 2.4ish etc... if that makes sense.

MTV, you're right, there is an uneven gap front to back, but factory spring firmness is ideal for what I use the car for, compliant for everyday driving and firm when needed.
