Pic of E90 non-zcp Sedan with ZCP rims?

Trying to look for them, can't seem to find a good example.
Has anyone put a 359M ZCP Wheels on NON-ZCP sedans? (stock height) (pre-lci or lci)
can i see some pics?

thanks!

Sorry, I don't have a picture but I put them on my 2009 non ZCP AW sedan. I now have a 2012 ZCP coupe. I could not tell that the sedan was a non ZCP car. I highly recommend adding them. They totally transformed the look, ride and handling.

Thanks!
technically non zcp is 1cm higher than the zcp suspension.
Was it noticeable?
I ask because zcps are deep + wide and with stock height it might look silly
(while 220m 19inch stock M wheel look perfectly fit and covering the wheel house of the non-zcp stock suspension)

Honestly man I don't think so. If so it's only noticeable by measuring IMO. I almost bought a 2011 Comp package E92 last week. Sitting next to each other I couldn't tell a difference between it and my 2008 standard on ZCP wheels.

If I'm not mistaken, ZCP cars are only 10mm lower than non-ZCP's..

ZCP gives a 10mm ride drop. Visually, it's not very noticeable unless you compare two cars side by side. Even then, it's only a 1cm difference...

It's perceptible, though barely, if you're OCD like me (and most M3 drivers I've met).

There is no issue adding ZCP wheels in stock sizes to non ZCP M3.

None whatsoever!
