Here is my parts pile now starting to stack up waiting to get into the 7.

Got some more on the way which makes these worthless ot put on now so I will put it all on when I get them all.

Shitty pic I'm sorry, I'll try and get a better one in abit.

Sorry for the shitty pictures but here is what I got to work with, better quality pictures I will try and post this weekend...

You can see the lowering springs + slotted rotors.

Brembo slotted discs up front. NOT pleased at all. Only been on the car for 2-3 weeks and already warped, am not happy with them, hopefully it shows up to be a faulty rotor, the caliper was in good shape and the pads were as well.

Tinted tails + Debadged 735iL

New stance, pics taken 1-2 hours after install finished, they have settled since then
