E91 on H&R sport

The ride is great! Smoother than I thought. Im not sure if the rear should be this low. What do you guys think?? The wheels are E46 OEM M3 18x9 all around.

I dont have an e91 but my e90 has the same look in the rear with HR sports.

Tell me you didn't ding that front left fender during the install...

Something about that whole situation looks....wrong. The rear is too low and the tyre profile looks too thick. If you ever plan on putting anything in the cargo area and possibly driving somewhere that might have a bump or two in the road, I think you are going to rub like mad. I would fix that. Is it possible that you just ordered a suspension for an e90 and somebody forgot to take into account that the wagon weighs like 175lbs more in the rear?

I had three people in the back seats soon after installation and had no rubbing at all. And thats with 255/40 18 on the rear. I also have new bilsteins all around so the ride is very smooth. I looked up another E91 with the same springs and looks pretty much the same way.

You might want to try some Supreme Power front lower perches (http://www.supremepowerparts.com/143..._category.html). Should balance it out.
