Looks like the wing on the customer car gets shared with an AMG car?

Are the HRE FF01 19x10 the +40 offset offered for non-M models? If so, what size spacers are you running - 15mm? Thanks!

Did you have any structural reinforcement done to run the true coilovers in the rear? Also, what are your soring rates front and rear?

I hit a pothole on the infield tracking out to wide for re-entry into the oval. And the angle ripped it from the front of my vehicle so that it was hanging down (actually thought i bent a rim at first proves the strength of the hre ff15). So I pulled off track and unscrewed it from the bumper and continued on my day.

Spring Rates are 13k front, 11k rear. My car is extremely heavy as it is fully optioned so it weighs in somewhere around 3850. Im not going to lie and say these spring rates are extremely comfortable for the street but for me the handling characteristics of the vehicle far outweigh the discomfort of the ride (its a pretty nice ride all things considered) But you can always go with lower spring rates and you will increase ride comfort.

As to the rear structural reinforcement. The e9x resolved the problems with the tearing towers (like in the e46) I run race slicks and extremely high spring rates and have never had any problems. Racewerkz racecar (project snowball) along with several other vehicles run true coilover rear with no reinforcement and have no problems.

Yes they are the +40 offset and I am running 15mm spacers currently however it would look much better with 20mm so I have a set coming in the mail from turner!

keep in mind his spring rate in the rear is for the true coilover conversion if your's isn't, it should be higher in the rear.

OP how were your bimmerfest times - am contemplating aero.

Lol I didn't get a single good lap in at bimmerfest my slicks were cording and since it was my first time with a set of slicks u didn't realize they were shot so my day was over very quickly. The aero does help tremendously though. Hope that helps ! And yes he does have a c63s lol
