Do you recommend higher spring rate? or your 7kg fronts and 11kg rears is good already?

have you had any problems with your bc coilovers?

Can you PM me the website or contact details?
I wouldnt really recommend a higher spring rate, unless you plan to run really low and aggressive wheels?

I havent had any problems with them

awesome! haha

Yeah, maybe you can get 12kg in the rear? i dont know. Depends how low and stanced you want to be.

But 7kgs in the front is enough, just work on the rears. Although 11kgs is fine for me.

What wheels are you planning on getting?

Awesome! thats gangster. Hopefully i'll see it in April come to the 100mm show.

Very nice specs and wheels. Youre getting Volks and CCWs? do you have some sort of connection or something? hook us up, PM me lol

But yes, those specs should sit flush. I would run 225/40 on the front and 265/35/18 on the rear. Depends how much you want to stretch it and how low. Maybe 225/35 on the front would be better.

PM me

round 2.
I was driving around the last week with stockies on the front and work wheels on the rear. I KO-ed my front lip so many times, it looks like crap now.

Reason was ever since fitting the 225/40s on the front, i've wanted to go down a size. Finally got some tyres today, 215/40s but it still isnt enough lol. But its better than before i guess. Fitted the wheels again, pushed out the camber to zero camber up front.

And...i raised the rear abit..i did fit some 13mm spacers on the rear for the lols. The fender sat right on the tyre, like how i had my e46 on bags. Brought back memories lol.




Final setup. Threw 3mm spacers all around:






rears could do with some more spacing and cambering.

Final specs atm are 18x9 +9 and 18x10.5 +24

Wheels are for sale.
Im looking at getting a new set of wheels made up this time.

Also, coilovers are up for sale. Nothing wrong with them, getting something different.
