ESS Tuning BMW 550i : H&R Springs, Stop Tech Brake Rotors, and Stainless Steel Lines

psadmin Projects

The 4.4L Twin Turbo V8 in this BMW 550i M-Sport is cranking out some serious power thanks to software from ESS Tuning! And because of the additional power having brakes and suspension that can keep up is very important, installed on this 550i after the software was a set of H&R Sport Springs, Stoptech drilled brake rotors with matching performance brake pads, and stainless steel lines. These modifications will help this 550i handle and brake as well as it can accelerate! An added bonus with the H&R springs is an aggressive drop, this gives this 550i a great presence on the road. In addition to the performance modifications we painted the brake calipers dark blue to match the H&R Springs. All in all this is a well rounded package and will allow this 550i to keep up with its bigger brother, the M5, on the street and track!
