go with 12mm spacers and it will look awesome. they will look great even without them. offset in the rear is 39 and its a 9 in wide wheel. If it were me id go with a 12mm spacer. I had an e90 and I went with a 15mm and it was aggressive and nice.

Yea, and if you can't find a 12mm spacer, a 10mm will work really well too.

If you go w/ 12mm spacers, you'll need to roll your fenders, else it's going to rub. You can't go as aggressive as e90s.

I'd go 10mm max

I don't think he'll rub with 12mm spacers. However, the 12mm spacers will put him very close the fender, but if he's stock otherwise, he shouldn't have any problems.

^Found that in Bimmerfest.com

If you have that exact setup and you decide to get our H&R TRAK+ spacers, I would say get a 10mm spacer in the rear, since you brought up 4 people being in your car. A 10mm spacer set up will be the safest bet in giving your E92 a more aggressive stance without rubbing when there are 4 people in it..

As for the front, I would say you can only go with a 5mm spacer since there isn't a spacer that'll fit between 5 and 10mm.

I believe this would be the setup you'd go with in your situation.

------EDIT

For 12mm spacer in the rear rides for the E92, I'd search, hold on.. i'll try looking around for you and give you some links here

------EDIT

Hmm.. that's funny, I couldn't find any.. lol. Someone on this forum has to have a 12mm setup. Someone help jlspeed out!!

^^ james!!! thank you for your help man!

can you pm me a price for the spacers....
they seem simple (we know how that goes) are they something that takes like 5 minutes to put on?
take wheel off, install spacer, put wheel back on?
