Spacer help. Help a noob out please.

Hello I just purchased a e90 335i. It has the sport suspension and 162 style wheels. I dont plan on lowering it. I am interested in purchasing spacers for my car. My questions are.

1. What size spacers should I get in the front and rear?
2. What brand and type of spacer I should get?
3. I want to make it look more aggressive, but not too much that it would rub.

I have done a search, I havnt found too much on this subject.

Thanks in advance.

Did your search include BMS?

These guys seem to have some experience:

I've been toying with getting 12mm back 10mm front on my stock e90 with sport suspension.

Might try it after swapping for the performance suspension.

Those rear wheels are WIDE, but oddly not as wide as the wheel arches. Are the rear quarter panels the same as the M3? Cost savings with parts sharing?

Yup, I had it for 10 years, it was the best. I had a 95 Cosmos Black M3, with a vf engineering Supercharger. Not that anything is Wrong with VF , but after I put that kit on my M3 started falling apart,so I threw in the towel.

Funny enough I had the same question not to long ago and got 100 different answers. I wound up going with 20mm spacers by H&R. They fit perfectly. No mods necessary, no rubs at all. I have an 07 335I E90 with sport susp. 162 wheels as well. I went with the H&R spacers because they do not require longer bolts. You use the stock bolts and locks. The spacer bolts to the hub with the included bolts. As for the front, I went with no spacers since the fat 20's out back gives it the perfect stance now. Here's a link below

Looks great. Which brand did you end up with?

Any noticeable difference in the handling?

Sure what kind of pics would you like? The actual spacer, or how flush the wheel and body are?
