162s on a non-zsp 335 e90

So, Swoop and I are talking, and I'm thinking of buying his girlfriend's 162s for my car.

I did some forum searching and found that at least a couple of people say that without the zsp suspension, the car looks a little too tall if you just add the 18-inchers.

Anybody have any thoughts on this?

Also, it's only logical that her 162s would be staggered (18X8 front, 18X8.5 rear), right? (Swoop suggests I ask here, and why not start a thread?)

John, this is my car on non-ZSP with 18" staggered...not 162s but you get the idea. As you can see the gap is not too bad. Iirc there are more pics on the subject around the threads.

Thanks, General.

I looked at some other photos on other threads, and I thought they looked pretty good. Your car looks fantastic.

If I get to buy Swoop's woman's wheels, I guess I can stay stock. But, again, I have this feeling I'll be putting Spool on speed-dial.

John, 162s are an awesome choice, perfect match for the E90...I think you'll be happy with that setup for some time. You'll get the itch to do the springs and other mods the more you hang out with us though...

Stay away from ase2dais, I was happy with my ride height/setup but he sold me on the pro-kit drop

We are not finish DC!

you still have to buy in on H&R Sway bars and NonRFT tires to complete the transformation.

But take your time, I know I am, long enough to see the Turbos drop in price and first buyer-depreciation.. And we'll snag these babies at bargain prices

HAHAHA!

It may be too late, General. I just PM'd Spool to inquire about sway bars and the pro kit.

Hey, Ase,

Can you fill me in here or on PM about what I should expect to pay for top-quality sway bars plus labor? And is it a horrible pain to do 'em, as I've heard?

Don't I know it, Jack. I like my 159s. They have Spidey-Sense.

But the 162s are just magical on an e90. My neighbor has them on a titanium silver 330, and I just walk by and stare at 'em every day. She never seems to drive her car, either. What a waste.

Say! That gives me an idea .... Bwaaahahahaah!

Me, too.

I'm going to use you as a reference if I end up with 162s and need to sell 'em. Surely somebody out there has older wheels or something and would love to get a crack at perfect 159s with good tires.

You might want to keep them for the winter months....

Great idea, and I'd prefer that to sellling them, but I don't have storage space.

I guess I could *rent* space.
