Very nice!!

I'm thinking of this combo (OEM 19 inch wheels + Eibach springs + 10 or 15mm H&R all around) but I wonder if it will rub. Car will have EDC.

Thanks man!

The HC is still doing great! We seem to have similar taste in cars

How is your Silver JCW doing?

I have some OEM 19"s, and will have some H&R sports and 12mm all around installed (hopefully) in the next week or so; I'm waiting on the spacers. I'll post pics, of course.

Performance came with the silly car out of the box, I added a AA exhaust & an AA pulley + AFE filter, next is RPI air scoops, xpipes and software....enough for me then.

Suspension is stock with lowering springs, for the next 25,000 or so then I will consider KW's.

Yellow tint on the headlamps comes from LaminX is protection, I was looking around and saw a fre GT cars with it, so I went for it, my other cars have it too I have always protect the lens and front end, Yellow was different and contrasting enough on a A30

Thank you for the comments.

Yeah men! You are the one, love that agressive 18 plus yellow taillight. I am also fun of my 18s, thinking about spacers like yours and maybe yellow in white also is hot!

Great man!

Wow. nice job man. what type of springs (I don't know if I missed reading it somewhere)? Man, gotta love the new chassis. You can go as big as 20s' and still won't rub. Too bad the E36 had that problem; 18s' w/ rolled fenders used to rub like crazy.
Love the clean job

Love the stance - spacers should be among the first mods if keeping stock wheels.

if you add aftermarket rims, are you suggesting not to add spacers?

Depends on the offsets of the wheels from the manufacturer. Spacers are used to "fine tune" the track width.
