Pic request:19'' CSL rep hyperblack not lowered

Hey guys, I'm really searching for wheels right now and I like the csl reps hyperblack. I have a steel gray e46 coupe and want to see pictures of those wheels without lowering. I have the sport suspension but I don't have enough money to quite buy springs and shocks at this moment. 18'' and 19'' comparison would be great as well. Thanks in advanced!

Here they are on a convertible. It works well as the CSLs are an OEM styled wheel so it looks factory- of course a drop is needed but you can run it in the mean time.

A drop is needed?

I live in Canada, we have some of the hardest winters here. My 325i is the lowest of 3 sedans i've regularly driven yet, I'm iffy about this kind of mod.

Lowering the vehicle is not needed when installing wheels or doing any other mod. Lowering a vehicle is solely up to your discretion.

lowering is mostly for the looks, since you have snow during winter time, should be ok with the sport suspension...
