the pre 96 grill is squared and has less of a lip while the 96+ are more rounded and have a lip. personally i think the 96+ looks better.

thank you sir! Now that I'm educated on the issue, get the 96+ grill hands down!

That looks really good!

Hard to get a sense of the current stance based on the two pictures, so I can't really comment on the ride height.... but personally I think the car looks pretty fine as is. Wheels look good too.

lol...

Is it just the picture, or are the grills a little off in the first pic you posted? Might just be the lighting, but they look kind of wonky to me...

Yep, I stand by my previous thoughts..... the ride height is fine, if it were my car you couldn't pay me to lower it further. At that point it stops being functional and starts becoming a show piece. I prefer cars that are drivable.

If anything, make room for some spacers. That would do a lot more good than drop.

Those wheels need the spacers man. I never even tried them without the 15mm all around, in fact when Tom asked me if they clear the M3 brakes without them I had no idea. lol.

Keep them clean, I was PISSED when I saw how dirty they were at Bimmersport. Buy Jonny lunch when your car is there, he's a good wheel washer.

And no, you're not getting my 18s.

The only thing I'm debating back and forth with is if I should put tints on it?
What do you guys think, tint or no tint?

funny, i'm debating whether or not to keep my tints.. i think the car looks cleaner without them though. the only reason i keep them is to have a little bit of privacy lol

I was gonna say it needs some spacers. Jay, where should the rim be to look good? I.e., how do I tell if I should get spacers?
