I stayed on stock springs the entire time.
Bolksey - so long man. The Leggy is gone now. The m5 has been keeping me busy - not as many "holy shit" problems as you'd expect
Mainly electrical bullshit - fuel pump relay and fuel pump fuse blew, driver's seat controls started blowing fuses indicating a short somewhere, and a wheel speed sensor is on the fritz. Other than that I've put ~15k miles on it since March of 2012 and it's great.
Been a pleasure being a member of this forum. I've got a tiny voice in my head that says "get an 09 spec.b. and slap an 18g on it!" but that voice doesn't get a say just yet
