Nice work once again man. Have you done any rear fender mods? Does the E90 have a lip like the E46 does? Thinking of getting mine shaved (cut & seal).

Thanks man, not really happy with it though, the offsets are so weak. These E90s have massive guards,
Yeah i rolled the rear fenders. The E90 has a different fender to the E46. The E46 fender was so much better. The E46 you can roll almost completely flat like a U shape and abit 0.3cm thick(whereas the E90 has a fold and thus it'll still be 0.5cm thick and its a Squared shape.

Yeah, if you want the best clearance, you would have to cut and seal. I know MSBHVN did it on his E46 coupe.

Thumbs Up Great name and car

niick; your car still looks great and I don't understand why so many beemas have different rims but each to their own.
I own a 2004 e46 318i and it has 16 inch rims but I have 205/55 on them and I want to expand the tiers to 215, even though I've been lead to believe that I can put on 225.
niick, I guess you have answered my question, and dude you have a great ride.

Your threads are some of the most interesting Nick cos of the crazy wheel shiz nit that you do!

The E90 coilovers only fit E9x right? And what's your ball park asking price?

Haha thanks, with this e90, you dont see me posting up new wheels every week.

And yes, the coilovers for for E9x models. Not sure, but it'll be cheaper than the lower end BC coilovers (just want to get rid of them to make way for new suspension) Keep in mind this is the BC extreme drop kit, so it has shorter shocks but can still go as high as the standard ones.

Theyve done less than 1000kms lol

Youre on the ball there. Bags will only happen if coilovers sell, if not i'll keep my coilovers, theyre awesome!

Lets try again:

Maxed out the camber in the rear and added a 10mm spacer.







Tried 12mm on the other side:







That poke!

I'll probs stick with the 10mm and i'll be changing the rear tyres this weekend.

Shall be interesting.

That's ok Nick. Do what what you gotta do. An internship is important. Worst case, if you still wanan come, you can fly and we'll pick you up from the airport. But i guess it'll only be worth it if the flights are affordable.
