Maybe your opinion is just different in that you want the front 3 inches lower than the rear for that fwd feel you are used to? I'm not sure.

Sorry if I come off being rude, but people mod their cars the way the want to. They don't put on super wide wheels that stick 5 inches past the fenders that tarnish the BMW handling and looks. The evenly drop the car so it has no rake. It's how they see fit they mod their $40k plus automobile.
so 19 inch wheels with the tiny tires are put on for handling sake? lip kits are put on for aerodynamics right?

im pretty sure a slammed e9x looks good, i think the white one pictured before your post looks amazing, and many people would agree.

the reason the most people on this forum dont do it is because they dont own their cars. theyre caught by their balls in a lease and cant do anything to their cars

Dude all you do is bash people on here, ive never even seen 1 picture of your car, and wouldn't be surprised if you never post one because people will rip you up just for being a dick.

And furthermore, a VW stretch on a BMW is treason unless your rocking an old e30. say something nice for once, or post up your car and take your lumps.. geezze...

thats exactly what i was thinking...lets see some photos of your ride. if your ride doesnt have a "perfect stance" as you call it and your on stock wheels then stop bieng a dick and bashing people who actually have some mods.

I have posted my car. It has 5800 miles on it with KW coils, OEM BMW Performance grilles, and M6 winter wheels. I'll post pictures when it's actually modded and the way I want it.
This is a public forum. I'm expressing my opinions, publicly. I give praise where it's deserved, and constructive criticism otherwise. If someone thinks their car is slammed even though it has wheel gap, I'll be sure to correct them.

You hate stretch and claim it's bad/unsafe, yet you put 20" wheels on. That is doing it wrong. There's no such thing as "a VW stretch." Tire stretch is common to all manufacturer's aftermarket communities. I find it humorous that you consider it acceptable on E30s, but nothing else.

20" wheels is doing it wrong.
lol So you have an imaginary car, and will post pictures once you find someone elses car on Google that you like?

Naming some parts doesnt count for anything.

P.S. Love my 20's (keep on hating)

wat
I just said I have posted it. It's stock besides what I listed. My car is lower than half the ones in here in winter mode and I don't consider it slammed. I just got it.
If you don't like what I have to say, ignore me. No need to get butthurt.
You claim your car to be slammed, but I don't see it posted in here.
I don't have any good pictures since installing the coilovers and it's in winter mode, but if you really wanna see it:

I understand that it's a public forum and you like to express your opinions, but you don't have to be a complete ass about it. Please be respectful of other people's rides please. my .02 cents.

I don't think I have ever once bashed someone car. 90% of the cars on here look great, but I usually just tell them to lower it. Relax and learn to take criticism if you're posting your car for opinions.
I don't want to keep cluttering this thread. (I'm the E90 in foreground of the picture..)

You obviously misunderstood me, I said the VW stretch is treason for BMW's, with the exception of the e30 or so, which would imply that on anything else, its fine. Hell it even looks good on some cars, but not a new BMW.

So which of the 10 cars in this pic is yours?

And Im pretty low dude, ill even take a nice new picture right now for you, 1 second.

I dont think this thread asked for opinions,
it was more just to see what the forum has to offer when
people want to see how our cars looked lowered more than most people.

wheres your car....
