E92s? cause I know e90s have more room up front compared to us.

I have BRs, springs rates are 7kg upfront and 11kg at the rear.

The car was lowered an inch on all sides and I still have plenty of threads on the coils to get the fronts to sit flush on 19s.

The rears are hitting the guards right now so I will be rolling the guards this weekend and making it abit more stiff, the fronts and rears will be lowered some more

Good news, after my full wheel alignment the errors were goneskii.

Rear guards rolled and the fronts were cambered some more and lowered another 10mm.

I know it's still too high, could probably lower the rears and fronts another 10-15mm to get the guards sitting flush on the rims but am happy with the current set-up right now.

Just read the entire thread.

Great build. My eyes were playing tricks on me. From the front I thought it was an M3 there for a second. That sort of dish on the front and the M3 style bar gives it the illusion that the guards are pumped. So many people get this wrong. Nice fitment on the front bar, sills and rear bar, diffuser.

Tough looking car . Only thing is now is wrap the chrome line trim..

Thanks guys!!!

The windows trims will be gloss black, still deciding whether it's better to wrap or paint them.

These 2 shots are my favourite. Front set up is spot on.

You just need a set up as per QLD's "best white coupe ever" thread to make it puurrrrrfect..

Looking sharp and that ride height is perfect imo.

Its a nice compromise of neat yet also 'stance'

Paint those trims dude, that was one of my fave mods on my car so far!
