PICS - 19x9.5 Front on lowered E92

Wanted to share a couple pics of a 9.5 et33 front on a lowered E92, just for documentation. When I originally searched, I could only find stock suspension examples or E90s.

Setup: (No fender roll)
VMR VB3
19x9.5 et33 Front - 235/35 Continental DW
19x10 et25 Rear - 265/30 Continental DW

Thoughts:
The front wheel, without tire, is about 1mm away from the V2 strut body. Seeing that was a little scary, but so far I don't rub at all even on full lock.

Without a roll in the rear, I rub slightly on dips or with rear passengers. With a roll I think this goes away completely.

Lastly, the grip is insane. With this setup there is little to no under/oversteer, and the car feels very neutral. Even with Cobb Stage 1 Agressive, my tires don't spin unless I want them to do so. Also, the ride quality with the DW is much better than the stock run flats, but with this wide of a front I do tramline quite a bit more.

On to the pics (Will update the thread with more detailed pics later):
