Not yet in person, but people have thought that the oil cooler was my radiator.

I continue to find your build to be very informative. As what everyone have said time and again, can't wait for the next update.
Complicated topic.

Right now, the 275/35/18s on the back do not rub on any sheetmetal throughout all of the available suspension travel. Keep in mind though, that I've had a LOT of sheetmetal work done inside the fender well to make these work. They do hit the rear bumper plastic though...which will be trimmed shortly. These tires do not fit a stock 330Ci without extensive modification.

Wheels are Bayern Mesh 18" X 9.5" in the back, and 8.5" in the front.

Hey...I would have thought the same thing if I didn't know the car.
