Here is my E90 lowered w/ Eibach Pro Set kit and 19"ASA AR1

Finally got my car, and the new rims and springs. Went with the 19" ASA AR1 wheels
Here are some before and after pictures. I lowered the car with the Eibach proset kit, it's a 1.2" drop in the front, and 1.0" drop in the back

Nice! So where did you end up going to get the springs installed? Where in Philly are you from? I use to live there.

Wow! It's amazing how a nice set of wheels and a lowered stance can dramatically improve the look of an e90. I can't wait until i have enough $$$!

No, they dont rub the fenders, i go with 19 x 8.5 all around, instead of going stagerred.

Can anyone tell me on how to edit my first post. I dont have the edit button on the first post, I'd like to remove some pics that are double posted

Why didnīt you get the staggered setup?? Looks so much cooler and suits the RWD layout better. If you went for 19s and Eibachs, the staggered rears were almost essential to complete the look.

Nice wheel choice anyhow.

Any comments about the ride in comparison with your stock setup??

Thanks for the compliments. No the wheels dont rub the fenders, only reason i dont go for the staggered looks is that i'd like to be able to rotate them

i bought the suspension and the wheels from tirerack. The gap is about 1.5" all around. The ride is still comfortable, much more comfortable than i expected it would be. I thought i would be a lot stiffer. It rides like a stock suspension, couldnt tell the difference

Very nice indeed! I like the wheels, changes the whole look.

Longtran, he has a front plate like yours. Could it be that you have become a trend setter?

Thanks for the compliments guys! I was in doubt when I first received and these wheels from the UPS guy, wasnt sure if these rims would look good when they are mounted. But surely, they look so much better when they are mounted to the car, it even looks better after I lowered the car

I got the german plate from a friend of ours who live in germany, you can personalize it also

Awesome! Ever consider a set of spacers on the rear wheels? Bring those babies flush with the fenders and it'd look even hotter! Good job.
