Added 20mm Rear Spacers!

Just fitted 20mm Spacers to my rears!

Loving the rear stance!











I was thinking of fitting 10mm to front!

where did you pick up 20's. I was thinking of the BMS 15mm, but that looks real nice on your car.

I got them from these guys: Precision Autoparts

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-3-Seri...#ht_1866wt_986

They had 20mm's at one point! It would be worth messaging them, they come with free bolts too!

I run 15mm front and 20mm rear on my e92 with eibach pro's and 19" VMR CSL's on a 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 tyre continental 5P's ..... Stance is spot on all round, doesn't catch either

Go with the 15mm on the front

Hahaha believe it or not, I've put a Eibach Pro lowering spring kit on it!

It probably dropped by 2mm max!

I think that 300 odd quid should be all i'm spending for now on lowering the car! On my next car I'll manufacture the springs myself!

P.S I love your car

Lol....I run the same springs, dropped 5mm rear and 18mm front (actual drop)
Took me abit of figuring out to get everything to sit how I wanted and have the flush look but didn't want it to catch at all and had to have the same ride quality as standard msport or as close as .... Goal achieved !! Haha

What engine you got ? Apparently their are two spring rates - one for the 6 cylinder and one for the 4 cylinder engines.

Nice man! You got it spot on! The rims and the stance of your car is just sick!

mines a 4 Cylinder!

Lol I have a whole rant here about it:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=718339

In summary if you have a 320i M sport, forget these springs!

At least with this arch gap.... there definitely isn't going to be any rubbing!

Any wheel vibrating? I was considering getting 20mm H&R's for the rears but these look like a pretty sweet deal.

So this is 20mm rear and 15mm front?

This will pass MOT right?

@1sh... What did you decide to run front in the end? Are your MV3 wheels 18"?

Yeh that's Notnormals 20mm rears and 15mm front.

I have 10mm fronts but I havent put them on as I want 15mm hubcentric ones!

When I get time I'll get them on!


And yep! 18" MV3s in Gloss black

Awesome! Thanks for the reply.
I'll look at some 20mm for the rear.
Many said that 15mm would have issues on the front. But seems not normal is proving them wrong? And he even has a drop!

True!

I know 10mm will look great .... but 15mm would look badass! Ive heard all the stories about "rubbing" etc. Worst case scenario: just switch to 10mm!

You should definitely put 20mm on the rears! Its just so pleasing to look at!

SOOOO... When are you getting the 15mm spacers?
I'm thinking I will try 12 just to be safe. But that's the same as saying I'll run 15mm in the rear to be safe.

Keep me posted when you get them.
