Thanks Tootall, added to my extensive Amazon wish list, hopefully soon to be moved to the shopping cart!

Actually it's on sale on autogeek(free shipping using promo code: sema2012) right now for $20 shipped for only today. Can't beat that.

suspension = h&r springs on bilstein shocks and struts

What is the offset?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm new to BMWs and I want to make sure I buy the right parts the first time.

It does look pretty good. You may want to check your size again I suspect a typo. 245/45 would be way too tall.
Also I'm surprised you had to roll fender for 8.5 inch wheel with ET 43. I got 9.5 ET 45 and it fits fine (255 tire).

Probably because of the 45 sidewall

Heh. Doesn't look like it in the pic. My guess is 245/35 (which is still taller than stock).
