if everyone seems to like this style, why don't we see more e46's with aggressive wheels?

My Ride: -
Adjustable rear control arms will push the bottom of the wheel out more, so won't compensate for the spacers. You should redrill your strut towers to move the top in then add spacers
+ cut fenders
+ stretch

Here is my setup (not the standard sizes that everyone goes with).

I love the sick flush/camber look. I plan to run -3.5* rear and 18mm spacers (currently have 15mm rear) and put those 15mm up front and run -2.5*, then slam the bitch.

No camber will where your tires veryfast. I know I was dumbed all the way out with crazy negative camber and my tires where showing wires within 6,000 miles
