Very nice, I like it. How much did the Eibach Pro dropped your car by?

^ thanks. added supreme power front lowering perches for a total drop of around 12-13mm all around (from sport package suspension). so, 32-33mm from stock non-sport. the eibach front springs only maybe lowered it down a mm or two from sport package, so the lowering perches went on. note: we also put new bumpstops in to maintain the damper stroke range. used the E36 M3 front bumpstop and the Z4M rear ala dinan.

New Apex wheels installed today...

Wheels:Square 17x9 et30 Arc-8 - hyper black
Tires: 255/40-17 Summitomo HTR Z III
Suspension: Stock 335 Sport package

stock fronts, 55.2lbs

Stock Rears 58lbs:


New setup - 43lbs!! :rock:


Couple pictures! didn't realize till late that this isn't exactly a level spot.




Front fitment - perfect! (Pulled the alignment pins when I installed them, so gained a little camber)


Rear fitment - a space here wouldn't kill me, but it works for now with the square setup.


and with it actually on level ground..



I have intended to go lower, but discovered that might *not* really be an option with my driveway...


That's about an inch - with nobody in the car!

the new EC-7's

a few iphone pics. got them installed a couple weeks ago. really loving them

18x8.5" ET35 profile 1 and 18x9.5" ET35 profile 2 with 235/40/18 front and 265/35/18 rears. BFGoodrich Sport Comp 2's. excellent tires for street and track. had it up at big willow springs last week, the lighter unsprung weight was instantly noticeable in ride quality and acceleration.

these wheels rock. nothing but compliments so far. love the look! identical to the BBS GT4 of M3 fame.

the car is sitting on OEM sports suspension

enjoy

EC7 E90 Pre-LCI Direct Fitt

8.5/9.5 ET35 <<12mm Spacer on Order>>CONTI DWS 225/255

My fenders were not rolled, these wheel wells will swallow a rim, notice that the e90 335xi gap will differ from a 328 and 335i. Wanted the profile 3 et22 but it may be a bit close. I am test fitting the 12mm spacer on the front and rear.

No Drop, Still debating if I'm keeping her. The car too. I know too much gap in there...Need the V1's... FMIC, DP's and a bunch of cosmetics... at the point where I have to ask is it worth another 3k in mods...

The EC-7 wheels look great on the car. PLEASE DROP IT. I have the same tire setup dropped on Eibach pro kit and it makes a world of difference in the look of the car. I have been thinking on getting these wheels in March as my first wheel mod and you just made me want them even more.

  • 265/40 Hankook V12 Rears
  • 5mm Spacer in the Front

Only problem is the owner before me may have tightened a bolt too hard and it cracked the paint. Other than that, beautiful wheels and super light.

Since you lost over 55 lbs unsprung weight, how does the car drive now? Any noticeable improvement in performance or gas mileage?
