I'm with some others here - not my style, but compliments on a very impressive build.
Thanks man.

Absolute Stunner! I love everything about it - even the OG reflectors. Sure there are things I would do differently but it ain't my car! Great work and awesome to see all your efforts come together.

I'd love to see a picture of it parked in your garage where all the work was done.

Cheers man!

Wow! Congratulations for someone having the balls to say it. It's even worse when there is a thread on a LTBMW build. I'm personally not a fan of it but I do respect the work and attention to detail that IND and the owner put into it. If the owner likes it then that's all that matters.

The owner of the car already responded but I thought I would add a little info. I am on clubsports but my ride height is a little higher. I have 275/35/18's (Michelin PSS) on 9.5" wheels as well. I have run them at et22 without any rubbing on the fender liners even at full lock. Unfortunately the KW coilover spring showed signs of slight rubbing on the inside (slight black scuff on the spring). I then added a spacer to achieve et15. The inner rubbing was solved but the tire now slightly rubs the liner at full lock. No rubbing during compression while driving. I think the magic offset for a 275mm tire on a 9.5" wheel is probably somewhere in between et22 and et15. I will report back after I experiment one more time with et17. No matter what, negative camber is necessary to run these sizes.
