Question What would you guys use for spacers on OEM wheels?

Wanted a more aggressive stance so thinking of using some H/R spacers

My car has oem 19" OEM wheels with no drop right now on 2001 m3 cabrio.

We just put on the Eisenmann exhaust but don't like seeing the oem canisters so thinking of a rear CF diffuser - what brand is least expensive?



thanks!

I just put some Macht Schnell spacers on my '11 E93, 18mm front / 15mm rear. I think it looks awesome. http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=490859

I'm not sure spacers are something you want to skimp on... they're not that expensive anyway, mine were about $250 total.

18/15 is pretty aggressive but looks sick! I did 15/12 because i plan on dropping my car a touch to get rid of that aweful fender gap up front

I went 15/12 as well. It's subtle, but noticeable.

Still recommend the 12/15mm combo for e46.
