Yes my ZCP is at stock height. I didn't take the pictures level to the car; there is a slight elevation in the photos that might be making it look distorted. But I'm trying to rectify that by buying a set of lower springs. Hopefully that will help clear the tire-to-fender gap that I'm tired of.

Christopher

Yeah. You need wider tires. Otherwise, very good look! I used to have these wheels--18"--on my 325 sedan. Very hot. They commonly get a bad rap for M3's. I still think they look very good though. I just wish they didn't bend so easily.

Hated it!!! Drop made a big difference and I LOVE IB, but M6 wheels just don't do it justice.

Slav,
This looks really good with your drop. Kind of made me wish I kept the M6 replica wheels, but I sold them over the summer and used the money to buy Eibach Pro-Kit springs. I'm dropped on Eibach's now with my original ZCP wheels and love it, but man, your killing it with the M6's! Great job.
