    Lowering Springs - MSS

    All, Looking to lower my car as I think on the xDrive, the body sits that tad too high for my liking. I've looked into Eibach Pro, H&R and ACS. From looking online at pictures of G30's that have been lowered, some of them still look like they need to be lowered a little more. My travels then led me to discover MSS. From what I've found out the springs are manufacturer by Eibach and are height adjustable from 0-30mm front and back. There's a lot of good reviews out there regarding these and I've seen a few videos from Evolve who have fitted them on their own and various customer cars. Has anyone got a car on MSS? I've been in touch with Evolve and looking to get this done in the next month or so. https://mss.company/technology/

    My 540ix Bluestone Build

    Started of my build thread on the other forum but not much UK conversation/discussion so thought I'd come over here! Thought I'd create my own build thread on here to showcase and share the various modifications I will do on the car.History - I have owned a few E90's, an F30 335d x drive, an F10 and more recently a F06 GC. The F06 was heavily modded and was an enjoyable build, which lasted around 11 months from ownership to me part exchanging it in for a G30. Alot of that build was showcased on IG - project640d.New Car - The new car/project I have purchased is a 2018 G30 540i x Drive in Bluestone MetallicThe car caught my eye as it has a high specification. I wasn't sure on the Bluestone Colour as I've always gone for Blacks or Greys. However, I feel I made a good choice going for this one. Looking at it side by side to the 640d, it wasn't far off Space Grey!Like with the F06 I had, I plan to make it individual to me and carry out various changes and modifications to make it my own - all of course, tastefully doneMy new IG profile: project540ix 540i Spec List:Standard Spec Ambient lighting Digital cockpit Heated front seats Instrument panel in sensatec Lumbar support Sport seats 20 inch individual wheels v-spoke 759i High-gloss shadowline Ext. mirrors- folding M rear spoiler Sun protection glass M sport braking system M sport suspension Active guard Active pedestrian safety Alarm system (thatcham 1) BMW online services Navigation system professional PDC front and rear Real time traffic information Single-disc cd player Dab digital radio Sport automatic transmission Additonal Spec BMW gesture control Elec fr seats + driver memory BMW icon adaptive led headlights Display key Enhanced bluetooth- wireless charging Harman kardon loudspeaker system Head-up display Headlight wash High-beam assistant Reversing assist camera Wifi hotspot preparation Comfort access Piano black - bmw ind.

    Service Plan, is it worth it?

    I've just taken out a Service Plan on my 2018 G30 540ix £900 (£225 down and then 27 payments of £25) no time limit on these as my concern was that i'm not doing the mileage I used to do. Saving just under £400 doing it this way based on the below services the car will need. Current mileage is 29,000.

    G31 Gloss Black Styling

    Sounds good. Looking forward to seeing thr changes you have planned. What wheels are you looking at? I'm looking to get a new set and also change my tyres to non RFT MPS4S. Firstly though, I'm going to get the car lowered on MSS adjustable springs to get rid of the arch gap! I've got a build thread on here: My 540ix Bluestone Build https://g30.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1751248 Most of my pics are also on Instagram: @project540ix

    G31 Gloss Black Styling

    Hi, New to this forum - spend alot of time over on Bimmerpost! Firstly, nice looking car and you've selected some nice mods to do to it! I'm a big fan of black gloss compared to carbon. Like you, I will be fitting the Maxton kit and the STM rear diffuser. I looked at the same mirror caps that you did for the LHD car. Reading online, some have said the LHD mirror caps don't really work with UK cars as the housing of the cap touches the mirror glass. I purchased the RHD ones and have had no issues. https://www.ssdd-motorsport.com/bmw-g30-g31-5-series-m5-look-gloss-black-mirror-covers/
