pics of e92 with lowering perches fitted

heres some pics of my car with front lowering spring perches fitted.
The results are very subtle but im happy with the result. It just lowers it enough IMHO. Didnt want it slammed, theres lots of speed bumps where i live.

Looks well Mike, much better than the gap left by BMW. Some spacers might help the look a little more .

Some spacers would top it off with those deep rims...

Got the 10mm and 12mm BMS Spacers in stock. 15mm coming into stock next week if you need them will do you the GROUP BUY price of 75 a pair with extended bolts

Mike,

I've just had a set of these fitted on my car too. Very nice.

To be fair the piccies dont really do them justice, the massive OEM gap is diminshed sufficiently for it to look 'right'.

Cheers

Yves

its ok, found your thread with picks

ive got to ask, where did you get the balls to paint the lm-r's red???? it actually works, but if someone told me to do that i'd think they were crazy, did you see pics of someone else's car car,or was this your own inspiration ?

now you've got me thinkin

tbh i wanted something "different" and I had seen a few VAGs/Japs with the combo and i really liked it so i looked for wheels with a large stepped polished dish and i had my eye on the lmrs for ages.

these are the pics i saw

i think the bolts really make a difference to the look and painting the centres make them look slightly more like a 3 piece wheel (on a budget of course)

btw the front spacers will be going up to 12mm soon - will post up pics. assume yours are the 8.5 and 10j and et 35s
