I am thinking about eibach pro kit 1 inch drop rear and 1.4 inch drop front. Then going 19's with 235/35/19 20 offset and 265/30/19's rear with 30 offset.

would You recommend that setup?

I couldn't tell you my offsets off the top of my head. I have 19'' avant garde wheels, they are 9.5'' wide in the front and 10''wide in the rear. I'm happy with the ride quality, but of course you sacrifice a super smooth ride, for better aesthetics and handling with coilovers.

Congratz! Nice transformation. LCI front end parts looks a lot better! Hmmm, was the front bumper a straight fit?

Thank you! The lci style front bumper, requires the lci style front hood, for the grills to work, otherwise it is a direct replacement.

Hey guys quick update: I finally added the msport rear, now I just need a good diffuser and tips. I'm thinking about buying the black crome ones from Cyba. I haven't had time to take pics yet, also for those of you that remember my wreck, I just replaced the front bumper with the same m3 style....

Here's a few Iphone pics I snapped recently one when I was having my car worked on, and another few that show the new Msport rear bumper. I still plan on adding exhaust tips and a diffuser next. Excuse the grainy pics, I haven't had the time to break out the dslr..

That's the plan, should I do it with red trim, or solid carbon, or black, matte, or gloss? Decisions decisions...
