those debating spacers for fitment (e90)

I recently purchased a set of 19 mrr gt1 staggered from tedrock335i and I absolutely love them. My 08 328 is a sport, and had oem staggered runflats, so this would just be a 19" upgrade. After researching the wheel sale forum, I learned a ton of info, so I posted some before/after pics here for those who may want to know. The wheels were slapped on with no rubbing at all (so 19's with 235 front are good, 265's in rear are good) Rear ET is 45 fyi. The e90 sedan sport has tons of room, so much so that I ended up putting 18mm velocity motorcar locking spacers - they have a screw to "lock" them to the hub... nice feature. and voila... perfect symmetry.

here are some pics... open to comments of course.

Looks good. Thanks for posting. Is the car on stock suspension? If so, is the ZMP lower than the ZSP?

Great job. Any chance to get a side profile shot from a little distance? Also how is the ride compared to stock? Any difference in speedo?
