BMW M Coupe gets a make over with BBS LM's and H&R Coilovers

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
After introducing our M Coupe to you all we decided to make this car a bit of a project that we follow on our channel, as it is a fairly unusual car that's not very well represented on YouTube!

So to begin with we are doing some modifications I always wanted back when I owned my first M Coupe in over 15 years ago.... BBS LM wheels! And to get it sitting right on those gorgeous wheels a set of H&R Coilovers.

A set of wheels always makes a car feel much more 'yours', and this gets it one step closer to the vision of the 'perfect' M Coupe I have.

Badass car! Thanks for sharing.

Anyone out there with a clean example of one of these looking for a nice E90 M3 instead, let me know. I've always wanted one but it's hard to find one that's super clean.

Love it. LM's are perfect for it. It's the one BMW I've owned that I truly enjoyed every part of. Well, maybe not the stock rear shock mounts.

Great video Imran. Nice to see more quality content covering the M Coupe!

I have owned my Estoril M Coupe for over 4 years and counting (longest I've ever kept any car). By far my favorite BMW I've had. Such a special and unique car that often gets attention when I have it out. A lot of us in the Z3 Coupe/M Coupe groups consider this our "never sell" car.

Just goes to show that oftentimes nothing more is needed than the perfect set of wheels and bit of fiddling with the suspension.

BBS for the win. Every single time.

Loved my two Z3M Roadies and one Z3M Coupe. The two tone interiors are still some of my favorites ever.

Beautiful car especially with the drop, would need to raise it a little for the roads around me, the bumper would be gone in a day. Wheels really suit it as well looks stunning
