Does this apply to the Gran Coupe, as that is what I would need?.
EDIT: I just sat in the back and there is loads of room leg wise, a bit tight for 6footers though.

haha, you should really think hard about using the GC to transport adults in the rear for an extended period of time. The rear is indeed small and cramped. The rake on the seat also doesn't make it comfortable.

But for many of us I imagine, the GC is just a "2nd car". We all have a family car to use on the weekend and trips. My GC ownership will be when my kids are 2 years old to about 8 years old and purely used to shuttle to and from school and other short distance trips.

When my kids get older, I might just go to a 5-series body (though the F80/E90 bodies are very roomy in the rear if I really wanted another compact).

does it have the comp pack so lower than stock in the 1st instance, i too am contemplating lowering my none CP car but don't want to go to low and give it that gangster look, i guess you used the standard shocks, i think the HAS springs can be adjusted if i recall, hows the ride quality does it remain the same as stock springs

M6 variants aren't lower by 10mm, only the M5.

Mine had standard suspension, not CP. I've lowered the car about 1.1" total overall on HAS. It can go lower. Ride quality is just as good as stock and you get to keep dynamic suspension settings unlike KW coilovers.

Thank you, you know that you're the first person to ever state offset on wheels when running 325 rears

Wow I created this thread a while back when I was looking for M6, but went with M5 back in 2015. I am out of BMW now but definitely coming back very soon! (e60 M5 - wanted since I was a kid, of F90 M5 - good upgrade)

Happy to see everyone's cars, just went over every single page! Loved the photos! Keep them coming
