E90 Avant Garde M310

Hey guys, I finally pulled the trigger in purchasing these wheels. I've been eying them for months and I have no regrets in making the call. I took some pics of my car with my iPhone so don't judge on the quality lol. I'm waiting for my guy to etch me in for a professional shoot. And I already know the first comment to come... DROP!!!!! LOL I'm debating if I want to drop or not. I just don't know the right way to do it and I think its too expensive for 1" drop...

























Here are some pics with filters...

No spacers... 19x8.5 35+ offset fronts 235/35/19 and 19x9.5 33+ offset rears 265/30/19

I'm trying to figure out if I can get spacers where I wont have to roll my fenders. I don't want to do any body work like that or have potential rubbing issues. I like a clean stock ride... Another reason why I'm debating hard on dropping or not.

what are you considering for the 1" drop? the performance springs? how much are they going to set you back? i think with a small drop, it would just set the whole thing off, i know its not really practical for a DD, but an inch isn't that much...

I have no knowledge on how to PROPERLY drop your vehicle. I don't want to ruin my ride quality. My car drives likes butter. I was told that I shouldn't go just springs because it puts too much stress on your shocks/struts and you will have to replace those in no time. Most people do full coilovers. I don't like going cheap, so from what I collected KW coilovers is the way to go. But they run $1,000+ and thats just for parts. Plus I don't know how ride quality would be and eventually tire replacements from riding so low. I dont really know the whole drop scene too much. But I know a drop will def set it all off. Just don't know if its worth to spend almost $1,500-2,000 for an inch drop

the OEM ones dont fit. where did you get the rims? i got mine from **********s and they sent me new BMW roundels that were slightly larger then the OEM. if you didnt get them there i'm still sure you can still get the roundels from them.

Yea I got mines from sonictuning... I'll see if I can get some roundels from them, I wish they would have told me that, good thing I didn't purchase the black vinyls yet.

Don't get spacers until you lower it. So you can measure the space between the lip and fender better
I'd go with some h&r sports and bilsteins.

Just install springs like I did. Yeah you would eventually need to change out the shocks but that'll give you time to get Koni's. I'm on about 16K with H&R springs and still good. Ride quality is about the same, maybe a bit firmer. Car looks great BTW.
