This setup looks sick. I was thinking about doing the same setup but with RD Sport springs instead of the H&R's. I have the OEM 19's as well. Do you think there is a chance there would be any rubbing issues?

you shouldn't have any issues, but its hard to guarantee that since once in a while we will hear about rubbing issues on certain cars even though we have run the same set up dozens of times without any issues

I hear what you're saying. I'm just going to have to take that chance. I want the ride height of the RD Sport springs while maximizing the wheel stance.

Once I get this setup installed. I'll post up some pics.

Thanks

I am deciding on 15/12mm spacer set up or the 18/15mm set up.
I got 2008 M3 sedan with stock optional 19inch rims. think to drop with some eibach pro springs. would the 18/15mm set up sit more flush to the fenders? and have more aggressive look ? 15/12mm have sleek smart look but what do you guys think at EAS?

do you have any pics with eibach springs 18/15mm set up?

thanks

The 18mm/15mm spacer set up will be more flush with the fenders rather than the 15mm/12mm set up because they're 3mm's wider all around. If you need reference to a picture of the 18/15mm spacer set up, just check the posts above for your exact set up

Just went "bulldog" yesterday with a set of MS from the EAS crew. Looks awesome. Will try to get a few pics when we get some good weather here in the NE.

The picture tutorial was spot on. Took less than an hour.
