no suspension mods. go with 12mm front, 15mm rear if you have stock 18x8/9s. or else itll looks odd.

Its a little harder to tell from the image but you can see more of the tires tread.

I didn't tell my brothers that I put the spacers on the car & when we were caravan'ing before, he commented and such the e90's wheels fill in the fenders a lot more than his e46 at the time. Then I told him I put spacer on =P so they make a very noticeable difference to people with a keen eye

The front spacer is too wide for being that high from the ground. you need the fender to nicely wrap the tire. By pushing the wheel out that far at your current height, it appears as though the wheels are the wrong offset. if you were tucked in approx. 5mm it wouldnt look so mexi. That spacer would be perfect if you lowered the car. It's all opinion based anyways so what do i know.

so until i get lowered i should do 10mm in the front and 15mm in the rear since its sits lower in the rear

You should go lower 1st, then get the appropriate sized spacers for the look that you want. Otherwise you run the chance of having to deal with buying and selling an extra set of spacers and losing money in the process. My advice is do it right the 1st time. Do your fender work, drop your car then work on your stance. Just my .02

This is true, but lowered with sunk in wheels is worse than smaller spacers than needed after being lowered.

going with a 10mm spacer up front, be prepared to possibly grind down the hub as some bmw hubs are longer than 10mm. Mine was 11.5mm from the factory. Had to grind it down so the spacer would sit flush. In retrospect, i should have done 12mm spacers and not dealt with that.
