E90 with wheels spacers

Doing H&R springs and cant decide on what size wheel spacers. I've seen lots of E92's with spacers but not many E90's. If your E90's have springs and spacers or just spacers please post pics here along with spacer size.

Same specs are applicable between e92/e90. Here are the pictures from the e92 I linked in the other thread:







Vehicle is equipped with 15mm/10mm spacers, but most have been running 15/12mm.

When you say 15/12, is that 15mm in the front, 12mm in the rear?

Simple. Wheel comes off and the wheel spacers go on the hub. The wheel goes back on, tighten the lug bolts and you are done. If you have a jack, you can do it easily.

If our shocks wears out because of the spacers, I guess I could take them out and bring the car in for warranty work.

Longer bolts should always be used when installing spacers, The Macht Schnell kits come complete with them - eliminating the guesswork.

That looks hot Stoop ed.

Thanks for the pics. Hows the rear. I've been thinking of going 12 rear and not 15 rear. Does it rub at all? Also where did you get ur hood cf vents?

PS can i meet up with you to see the car in person? Im in Torrance.
