How much performance is given up by going to 20" rims?

How much performance is given up by going to 20" rims over my stock 19" rims? Also, what exactly would I need as far as spacers, camber kits, etc. if I decided to make the change?

the decrease in performance is directly proportional to the increase in awesomeness, so the net impact on the car's utility is zero

Just trade your woman for a set of BBS FIs and call it a day.

20s on M3 = slow, no go
