OEM 18s look great on SG especially with those 15mm spacers. I like it. Don't let others dictate your mods.

Thanks for posting--it's great to see what others have done w/o always having to test the waters yourself.

I was wondering what the 15mms would look like with stock 18s (which I have as well). The look is much better, way more aggressive.

I'm not trying to be negative here, but it just reinforces my idea that I'd need to go for a drop to really get the look I'm after. Then again, even with springs, then I'd probably think I'd need wheels! I'm not saying you need either as this is a big improvement over stock and this may be the look you're after . I'm just after a particular look--and the springs then wheels thing? That's just the nature of the mod monkey on my back.

But this is a big improvement--and I like the idea of being able to incrementally attack this without the "transitional phases" looking bad. This, as I said before, is a big improvement over stock, and that makes it a pretty good bang for the buck in terms of cosmetic improvement. Nicely done.

Bad shot IMO. Also I think spacers look weird unless you have a drop, even w/ the OEM wheels but maybe that's just me.

I saw a female driver in a white convertible driving on Calvine Road once in a while. Were you the driver?

Wheels are more than fine. Love the combo of those wheels with that color of M3. All this car needs is some springs or coil overs..

No, that's not me. Unless it's my wife off joyriding when I'm at work! She's hard to miss...unless your driver had pink hair it's neither of us.
