Also got 15 front 12 rears, with H&R Springs. Once I get the pics from Renn-Spec, I'll put them up.

oh ya, sorry about that! We will be starting a showroom type of thread for these, to serve as a knowledge base for all things spacers, just to make it easier for users to see how different set ups look, rather than having tons of threads out there to search for

Brandon, you can take a bunch of pics of my car at Bimmerfest and use them for the spacer's publicity. It'll look much better than the earlier pics without the front bumper.

I start getting a slight vibration after 80mph once I upgraded to these. I have H&R Trak+'s, 15mm front 12mm rear. Just wondering if other people are getting this too. Didn't have it before, and I have gotten alignment done.

My wheels are currently torqued to 90, so it's on there nice and tight too. I'm thinking it's probably because of my new springs, but wondering if it could possibly be a balance issue from using the spacers? It's probably fine though, huh. (Sorry, paranoid.)

I've got the same vibration with my Macht Schnell 18/15's. I think spacers may exaggerate any existing imbalance that you have.

No vibrations here with 15mm/10mm spacers from EAS. One way to avoid vibrations is when you install them you have to make sure there are no wheel hub surface irregularities. I cleaned them thoroughly before mounting the spacers.

So I'm not the only one, cool. Just checking.

Maybe I should take them off and clean them out, then put them back on. I had mine installed by RennSpec, don't remember if they cleaned them or not. I was sleepy.

I do remember noting that even before any type of cleaning though (I'm pretty sure they did, but, I was really, REALLY sleepy) they weren't even that dirty. Meh.

I doubt that it's due to incorrect installation, as Brandon @ EAS did the install for me. It's fairly common for some cars to come from the factory with slight imbalances. Additionally, you simply may not feel the slight vibration. I'm super obsessive/compulsive so I feel it, but the wife is totally oblivious to it .

I wouldn't know about the 15 rears (running 12 rears), but the 15 fronts are perfectly fine.

If EAS is saying it's ok though, it probably is.



I drove my car around on different road surfaces, and I think the vibration is just increased sensitivity to road surface conditions from the new springs. In my case, anyways. Probably.

Im running Eibach Pro Kit springs and Eibach spacers. Before i fitted the springs i ran 15mm back and 12mm front. After i fitted the springs i decided to run 15mm front and 12mm rear (pics below). It still looks good and fills out the arches perfectly well without looking too OTT. Ive not noticed any handling issues and certainly no rubbing. Im driving to the Nurburgring next friday so that will be the real test!!! Not great pics im afraid but gives you an idea!
