My bmw M6 journey

Hello everyone! I'm starting this thread to document my journey with my 2015 M6. I've had the car for about 3 weeks now and have a few things done so far. I don't plan on doing a crazy build, but I'll definitely make it my own! Some background on my car, it's a 2015 BMW M6 Coupe with the Competition package and a 6-speed manual transmission.

Mods from previous owner include H&R lowering springs and a muffler delete.

I do love how the car sits, but I plan on swapping back to the factory springs very soon. I also plan on upgrading to the Akrapovic system in the future, but that's going to be a little ways off.

I'll make sure to add information as I go! Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated!

First things first was a full car protective film and ceramic coating. Just got it back today and man the pictures don't do it justice!

debating on PPF, i don't have it nor ceramic coating... HMM, is full vehicle overkill? I might just get full front

Gorgeous car! Keep it clean

The peace of mind was worth it for sure! Full car can be overkill, but I wanted to wrap the whole thing to protect the CF roof and the rockers. Highly recommend doing the rear rockers as well! Those rear wheels kick up a lot of rocks!

Congrats on the purchase, you'll love it!

I have a set of factory springs sitting around that I'm happy to sell you for cheap. Let me know!

EDIT: Springs likely aren't the same for the coupe at the back, would be worth double checking compatibility. I'm sure fronts are a direct swap.

Thank you for the offer! I actually already ordered the springs today! The manual transmission has different springs (I think they are the same as the front comp pack M5) and the rears are specific for the M6 coupe!

So it turns out that bmw no longer manufactures the OEM springs. Now it's time to look at the adjustable springs! I've seen KW and H&R both make an adjustable spring setup. Anyone try either of these??? I've seen one other member on the KW and they said it was nicer than factory, but not really worth the install just to lower. Since I'm trying to get it closer to factory, that won't be an issue!
