You're clearly exaggerating with 3" lower and 5" poke. I'm just saying that almost everyone one of these cars would be much better off with lowering the front 0.5-1" or raising the rear respectfully.
BMWs come with reverse rake from the factory. It's just not flattering to look at.
Lowered doesnt always equal good handling. If you go too low and compromise your suspension that kills handling. You need some movement of everything to take impacts and the surface of the road or else you lose traction. Plus if you go really wide wheel with really skinny tire you are losing more grip there compared to if you went with a big wide tire. IE if you run a 10 inch wheel, you should be running 275 tires or more.

im pretty sure a slammed e9x looks good, i think the white one pictured before your post looks amazing, and many people would agree.
Actually, you two are right. I did jump the gun a little bit, with this being a "slammed" thread.

I kind of agree here. Let people mod their cars the way they want to. Maybe what you consider "constructive" is demeaning to them. Just saying

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 state that its a public forum with everybody having their own opinion. But you go around telling everybody that their car is too high when they have it set where they want to, thats my only confusion.

I for one, think running uber wide wheels with tiny tires is ridiculous. But this is my opinion, and you have yours. Thats totally fine. But telling everybody that posts a picture they need wider wheels and to drop it just gets old after awhile, dont you think?

i dont see why people get mad when they post the wrong car in the wrong thread. if your car is on just springs, i guarantee you its not slammed, if you dont scrape, its not slammed. dont say its not practical. of course its not, its slammed. its about knowing how to get around these shitty ass streets we have around here while barely clearing city titties. if not destroying them while changing lanes lol
