New e60 M5 owner in CO (again)

I bought a Red '07 M5 back in 2010 (Schomp BMW in Denver) and sold it as I was spending most of my time overseas :-( Now that I am back stateside full time, I picked up another e60 M5, a Sapphire Black '06 with 12k miles. (I'll be swapping out the H&R sport springs soon if anyone is interested).

I live in the North Colorado Springs area, but any of you that go to the Great Indoors Saturday morning get together might know my 1000hp+ blue '01 turbo (GT2 front/rear with carbon roof and hood and TX plates). A couple others and myself actually started the meets there a few years ago.

We'll all have to get together one of these days, I have tools and a heated garage if needed.

Anyone need any HR Sport springs? $250

Hey Anders, have you ever replaced your spark plugs? I am due and was wondering if it was any easy job to do my self. Dealer is is expensive.

And I might be interested in your springs. I might want to see how yours rides fist with them and the difference.

My '06 M5 only has 12k miles, haven't done plugs yet, hear half of them are easy, the others not so much, but...I've a history of destroying knuckles, lets try it.

I already had the springs swapped and are in my garage ready to go. It lowers the car to about the top of the tires (see pic), the ride with HR's on no EDC is about the same as oem with 1 EDC (maybe a little more) selected, definitely lower and firmer, if I had to quantify, Id say 30%. I need one of my cars to have a softer ride :-) the turbo is very firm with the JRZ RS1's.
