Calling all E90's with H&R sport

I know this thread is racist, but seeing how there is a large population of E90's with H&R sport suspension, I thought it may be beneficial. I've noticed some variation in drop from car to car equipped with H&R sport springs (1.3"F/1.3"R). Some have more wheel gap than others. Just trying to get to the bottom of it.

My request. Would all participants please post a picture with the following information:


Type of shocks:
Wheel Diameter:
Wheel Rear width, offset, & tire size
Wheel Front width, offset, & tire size


Don't think it should matter, but it might be worth noting whether the car pre-spring install was sport suspension or non sport.

Type of Shocks: Included w/ H&R Touring cupkit (the cupkit uses the same springs)
Wheel Diameter: 17
Wheel Rear width, offset, & tire size: 17x8 ET34 225/45 R17
Wheel Front width, offset, & tire size: 17x8 ET34 225/45 R17
Coming from non-sport suspension

Wow really, mine rides better with the H&R's than the stock springs did! I love the ride quality of mine on stock struts. Then again when I went from stock springs to H&R's I also canned the RFT's so I am sure this helped.
I have had a lot of compliments on the ride quality after a drop with just springs.
