My 745Li Lowered and 21" OEM rims

Just installed my H&R springs and OEM 21" style 128 wheels to the car this weekend. Here are some pics, will get more pics after I clean the car and get an alignment done on it.
Next upgrade will be the Angel Eyes from iBright V3 coming within the month.

Reliability and the E65/66 shouldn't belong in the same sentence.
Picked up the car in Nov. and have been to the dealer about 3 times.
1) rear left speaker blown
2) front right angel eyes/rear lamps burned out
3) EDC rear control had to be replaced, car sat at dealer for 2 weeks while parts had to come from Germany.

Total cost would have been around $3000 by now, but thank god for warranty I didn't have to pay anything.

I wouldn't drive this car without warranty, I'll be looking for an extended warranty when the factory one is up.

And if your going to get a 7 get the Li, whats the point in a big body 7 if it aint the Li

Thanks for the comments guys.

I'm a member over at bimmerfest and they thought I was crazy to do it myself. But I'm not afraid to get dirty, just toke my time with everything and made sure it was all done right. Nobody will care for your car more than yourself so thats why "I" did it.

ZiMMie I might just get spacers for the rears to pull them out a wee bit.
I'll take more pics after its all cleaned up and its a nice day out.
