Some complained of rubbing, and many said they had no issues. There's a photo of my car that shows a mild rub point at the RH front at the following link: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...47&postcount=5. Other people had issues at the LH rear. I think that It's possibly due to body tolerances in the wheel well.

You can try adjusting the plastic fender liner. It's likely though that what you have is what you have.
Thanks for the input.

Have you had any problems resulting from the rubbing? Would you be comfortable tracking the car?
