E90 with 15mm Spacers Installed

Hey Guys and Gals,

Happy holidays!

I recently bought a set of 15mm spacers with extended bolts from DV and I thought I'd share the finished product.

Let me know what you think.

WithOUT spacers (car is a being a dirty girl for the camera)


WITH 15mm Spacers (still riding dirty)



From the side freshly washed


I also painted the mufflers and rear suspension bits. I always hated walking up to the car and seeing those mufflers taking away from that beautiful Jet Black paint job.



Elongated Bolts that came with the spacers


The car rides the same as or about the same with the spacers installed. I took it easy on them until I was sure they would hold. I'm looking forward to getting some Style 220 reps in the first quarter of next year so these spacers will come in handy for those as well.

Better pictures to follow soon.

Thanks All, happy holidays.
- Steve

I tried 10mm on one of my 19x9.5 ET32 rear wheels, but that was a bit too close to the fender.

Cool!!

I'm about to put my 162's back on...

Question: ANY RUBBING? I have a set of 20MM H&R's im wondering If I should attempt them. Most likely be running a 265 on the rear as well.

Mine rubbed very slightly with 20mm spacers and 255 rear tires. Rolled the fenders and it's fine now.
