    Hi all BMW drivers in the North if Ireland.

    Anyone got any idea where i could bring my BMW 540i to see a specialist bodywork person who is creative and is a perfecionist?

    I have Eibach suspension, the front bumper is an aftermarket bumper and is a little lower than the rest of the kit. As a result its on 4cm from the ground OUCH. I don't want to remove the suspension nor change the bumper but need advice from a perfectionist of my options and what i can do..

    Any ideas of people who work with this type of thing in northern ireland ?

    THanks

    Peter.

    I'm neither in ireland, a bodywork specialist or, to an extent, a perfectionist. However it sounds to me like your options are pretty limited if you insist on keeping the suspension setup - trim a couple of cm from somewhere in the bumper (whether you do this from top middle or bottom would be your choice and without seeing it I couldn't tell you the best place to take this from).

    Adjustable suspension might be a better option, though.

    Keep a full tank of petrol at ALL times.
    Keep the boot full of heavy stuff at ALL times.
    Have three people on the back seat at ALL times.
    Accelerate at All times - never brake or stay the same speed.
    Keep driving into the wind - even if that's not the way you want to go.
    Put a smaller and lighter engine in.



    All this MIGHT keep the weight at the back end, so you can drive with the front end up in the air to save your bit of plastic.

    What I would do?
    Take it on the chin, realise it will NOT work.
    Accept defeat and sell the offending item on Ebay.
    Leave it alone!

    You've got a 540 - that should be enough!

    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.
