That thing could be so much better. I like the wheels, the fitment just isnt there and the tire sizes dont seem right. Thats my opinion though.

I think it's a combination of

1. Those wheels need to be 19" on any e46 (assuming those are 18s just based on how they look)
2. Would look bigger with silver/brushed/polished centers instead of whatever those are
3. That front lip looks cheap on every single car. Sags down all goofy-like

What's wrong with the fitment? Still looks pretty good to me. This is on bags right?

The stretch should be the same front & back... Front height needs to come down about an inch or so to match the rear (fender-to-wheel gap). Front could also poke about 8mm more. Just my 2 on the fitment. Car looks good in some pics and goofy in others, I'm sure the owner's still sorting everything out.

this.

it just seems like he slapped the wheels on and left it at whatever height it was at, as well as camber, etc. and for stretch,
