It's sad that bmw put a tiny rear caliper only for electronic e-brake

Mclaren for exemple have a super tiny caliper only for ebrake and a really massive caliper for braking

Bmw should have gone this way...

Very nice guys, keep posting

It's really annoying that the brake disks are already rusted in the vent part. On my F82 they replaced the rear one 2 tines under warranty because they were warped. The front one did the same later.

Doing the lords work. Thank you EAS. Always loved your threads, going back to the E9x builds and spacer reference thread.

12mm up front looks good and fits properly, however the sidewall profile of the Pirelli makes contact with the fender liner turning. Michelin's or other brand tires can run a larger spacer without that issue.

The other alternative would be to trim the plastic fenderwell vents to allow additional clearance if you have the Pirellis or want to run a larger spacer.

Intentional. He will be driving around temporarily to get a feel so new carbon lip isn't damaged. Coming in for a readjustment in about a week or so.

There's still quite a bit of range to lower the front and rear if desired.

Ahh ok. So that missing 1/2" could be dropped further?

Edit: Ah yes, just checked the pics a bit further. I can see the thread now.

I'm curious when you re-adjust KW HAS do you do it while fully installed or do you need to disassemble some components? My shop already re-adjusted mine (rears) but they had to unbolt some parts etc.

Both, actually. Depends on doing it on the floor or on a lift.

Front suspension can just unloaded by jacking the front wheel off the ground and making the necessary adjustments.

Rear suspension its easier to remove the perches, measure your baseline and then make the necessary adjustments.
