Hey guys, so i have a 335xi, and i am running on 18/8.5 Gunmetal Csl's with 235/40ZR-18 Yokohama AVID W4S XL All around.

-I would like a more aggressive rear look to my car.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=114503

I assume you are running the 18x8.5 ET40 VMR wheels. If that's the case, you can do a 5mm front and 8 or 10mm rear spacer without any issues.

You can run a 5mm spacer front and 8mm spacer in the rear.

I have the same wheels. It looked like ass. I just put 20 MM H&R spacers in the rear (only). No need in the front. Looks great now. Anything less would be waste of time IMHO.
Bought them from Mod Bargains, best price I could find on the net, $105 w/bolts.

Nothing to worry about with the awd. Who told you there is?

With some 10mm spacer it will be plenty flush for you.

Looking for pics as well, Im still debating on size still, either 15mm or 12mm. And i also want to make sure spacing the rear only will not affect x drive.
