I dont think it has to be slammed, but to pull off a good set of aftermarket wheels, you will probably want to close the wheel arch gap in the front.

Might be a stupid question but, for those of you not dropped, did you guys get zcp? Interested to see more pictures of M3's with aftermarket wheels and NO zcp...

Boggles my mind why anyone would drop an M3. I think it looks like crap when the wheels are up inside the wheel well. And 20" wheels are just gaudy. Don't understand the point of buying a performance car and throwing on lowering springs and 30lb wheels.

Unfortunately theres you and millions of other people in this world too... Every one doesn't think like you and damn sure doesn't have the same taste. To each their own though...

Well same can be said to all the people who comment, "Car looks great, needs a drop though"

I just feel like a lot of engineering went into making the M3 the way it is, and someone is gonna spend $60-70k on one and slap on some $200 lowering springs. Just doesn't make sense to me. But like you said, to each their own...

I've had my BBS for awhile, Ilia at IND did my drop and I wouldn't have it any other way, I agree with the above, putting such beautiful wheels on without lowering the profile doesn't look right.

Eibach's would really compliment the way the car looks. Great choice of wheel though, you can't go wrong with these.
