The Evil Diesel .......

If looks alone could scare, this car does it with full authority :rocks:

Now dropped on Euro spec H&R Race springs (there are 2 versions of H&R Race in Europe, looking at the specs, they are very similar to the H&R Sport Stateside).

I am using LM165 19X8.5 ET32 fronts (235/35/19) and LM166 19X9.5 ET32 (265/30/19) rears. The LM148 is too aggressive for the E92.

Slight rubbing during hard cornering but the tire soon wore in the inner tire well lining and now there's no more rubbing whatsover.

Check out the clearance.

Thanks dude. You car was an inspiration to me to get mine.


Quote:

The quoted figures are the same as the 'Sport' but H&R Europe list it as a different part no. to Sport. Asthetically, it drops the front a tad more but not as severe as the Race.


Quote:

You can just about remove the front main mesh by pushing it inwards and unclipping it that way. Be careful not to scratch your paintwork on the way out. However, once the aero lip is on, it's best removed from the inside. The 2 side mesh has to be unclipped from the inside anyway, and this will involve taking the entire front bumper skin off the car.

I didn't paint the lower mesh grills, I replaced them with the black ones from the 325i.
