Hi Rob

thanks for this thread, i recently just got my KW V3 coilovers and about to embark getting that fitted with my Vossen CV3 wheels and Michelin PSS.
I am running 245/30/20 (offset 35) fronts and 285/25/20 rears (offset 42) and i was looking to get a more aggressive stance look with spacers - wonder if i can run 10's

Does removing bolt cause the front bumper not to sit flush a d tight with the fender? I had that bolt loosened up once and it looked like my bumper was going to come off right by wheel well where bumper and fender meet.

it sits perfect, use OEM front hole, then drill another. Works perfectly.

Just enough to get rid of the wheel gap. I'm going to lower the front another 1/8" when I get a chance.

I was rubbing the plastic where the bumper and fender meet because I didn't want to cut the liner. I just let it rub for a few days and it reshaped itself.
