Thank you! I appreciate your time! As I recall it does not take an extreme wheel or much lowering to give the car a nicer and slightly more aggressive stance. FYI-the wheel dimension and offset should be cast on the center part of each wheel and readable from the stud side of each wheel. If you do not mind, please take and send a picture?
I like the Xpel idea. should have done that while it was off, but just a few screws but always easier said than done, always something to goof you up. High Sierras is a great drive, dirt plowing and all! I would buy another one, however these are very hard to find, Alpina air dam, repro or not. Anyone have a source. You can still see the Alpina on the bottom of mine, it is a re-pop molded from an original, but they did a great job. No longer making them the guy I got it from and I'm a little torn, I've already spent so much money on air dams, but another one....arghhhhhh.Yes, my air dam is the single most expensive part on my Coupe. Highly recommend buying a second one & having Xpel® applied to both. I have 2 identical air dams with Xpel®.
In 2019 after Legend of the Autobahn we drove to the High Sierras & drove on dirt roads no air dammed Coupe or Bavaria should ever see. I even plowed dirt with the air dam! Cindy held back branches from scratching the car all while guiding me around rocks & avoid deep ruts. Still running the same air dam & it still looks new!

Just awesome!!!Here we go......3.5L stealth (running Zeniths) new motor w/ mild cam. Injection down the road, waiting on a custom one that is going to take a little time. Still in skunkworks phase, can't say what it is unfortunately. Replica hand made STAHL Headers that my car was used for fitment, so, obviously they fit perfect. New gaskets and such around shifter, noise deadening material around tunnel shifter area, made a big difference. New engine mounts, red 9-blade fan, clutch fan (wow what a difference that makes), no more turbine whine. I liked it and I didn't like that whine. It was fine as long as you weren't talking to anyone in the car. A/C all new, Sanden pump, custom bracket etc., no more Ice Chest fan A/C. I felt like the Clampet's. Have you guys seen those coolers that are A/C units basically for tents? Plugs into lighter. Used it once on drive up to 2019 Legend of the Autobahn and that was that. LOL, water sloshing around in back seat when ice melts. Luckily never had to hit brakes hard, that would have sucked. New engine bay paint, new stickers and the last pic was some bubbling from gas collecting in back license plate area, bubbled the paint, that is all painted now and drying at the moment. What else? Painted the brake booster and had it rebuilt.....basically another $15K+ or more down the tubes. Not looking at receipts anymore. Keeping them, just not adding them up.... depressing. Worth it for a Coupe, never will recoup (pun intended) any of those costs on a Bav. That bird flew the coop (pun intended again) long ago! Kept original numbers match motor of course, just had the valve cover for that refurbished. I need to fix the slight dip in the front bumper from an idiot girl hit and run backing into the car and causing that to bend a bit. She got busted at least, of course CA, nothing happened to her after a year in court, even after pleading guilty. At least Hagerty took care of the slight damage with no deductible. Love those guys/gals, shout out there. Like a new car, nothing left to do really. Install the flip up sun roof deflector is about it I guess.
