What size are you front and rear tires? I think you have one of the nicest stances here for a E90 m3!

This is my setup right now, I'm planning to go a bit lower for a more "raked" look but the front lip is already so low I'm afraid to scratch it.

Thanks for the 2 cents and the compliments! The tires are stock size actually (F: 245,35,19 & R: 265,35,19)

Love your set-up as well!

Was it primarily to get the stretched tire look?

Thanks for the response! Correct.
