Exclamation What is the average drop?

What's going on everybody? Quick question, I'm finally get my coilovers installed this weekend and I wanted to know how low should I go, in order to get a flush look? I currently have the sports suspension and the wheels I will have mounted are 18x8.5 all around, which will be mounted on the OEM 18s runflats and the only I'm still using those is because I have a lot of tread left before they get tossed.

The more you drop, the more UN-flush it will be. Camber.

You will also need spacers to get a flush look with wheel specs like that

I bought the BMS spacers as well, 12mm for the front and 15mm for the rear. I went off those measurement based on the website recommendations and the 07 e92 coupe, which had the setup, so hopefully it should come out nicely.

Depending what wheel and what offset you have will determine how flush or unflush it will be

I just had them installed, it came out pretty nice and tomorrow I can finally throw on the wheels, since the snowing has finally given up
