Spacers for front wheels

Who's done it?

Got some 15mm rear spacers fitted this week and am really happy with the stance at the back now as the car is pre lci the rear wheels always seem "tucked in". Now the fronts look fine (i.e. don't look tuck in) but at the same time don't poke out just the right amount like the back.

Don't want to go 15mm at the front and have too much poke but may go 10mm, what you all reckon - pics may help sway me!!

Also I know lci cars have 12mm wider rear track at the back but is the front wider too?

5mm for the front - will I even see a difference - still a good price?

On my pre-LCI E91, I have 15mm rears spacers and nothing at the front - the fronts and rears now look equal. Is yours pre or post LCI?

Where did you get your spacers if you don't mind me asking? Assume you needed new bolts and did they come with them?

Scroll down and look @ NotNormal's ride! - He's rocking 15mm front

Although it's an E92, you can appreciate how awesome it looks!

I ran 15mm rears and 5mm fronts when I was on stock suspension and MV3s. With the drop on coilovers I really need 20mm rears with the extra neg camber, they have tucked in about half way to how it looked on stock ride. Of course I can tweak it out but with the 19s the camber helps witht he overal stance. My current setup is 9x19 ET27 and 10x19 ET23. With a little tweak I'm pushing for ET18 on the rear.

I have a msport e91 with 19" csl reps and they sit in too far as well...

Looking at spacers but was thinking at least 20mm on rear and 12-15 on front
