Oh yes, though. Alpine white, polished wheels, and that xenon assembly just pop in the overcast light. Magnifique!

I'm rubbing too much inside from metal lining in the rear quarter panel, anyone else have this problem? My bumper is touching my rim too, it's driving me nuts.

I'm planning on changing the inner barrel to let my tire stretch more and create more clearance & run less camber. I do love the camber hehe.

Is your wheel or tire hitting the fender? My wheels rub mine. Haha. I have no paint on the inside of my fenders anymore. Rofl.

did you grind off some of the material on the inside lip of the rear bumper by the wheel well? i did this and its helped greatly for me not rubbing the bumper so much.

lmao, yeah my fronts don't rub at all dude. i think i want to buy 3 inch lips for the front to fill in the gap. or run a federal 215/35/18, i really like how federals stretch.

I pulled my fenders, rolled & shaved. I hammered that big metal lining inside if you poke your head under your quarter panel, youll see rubbing marks everywhere lol. I tried hammering the **** out of it but it's a no go. Taking my wheel off again today to change the brake shoes & primer the inside. I'm gonna shave little lines into the metal to let it flex in better because when you hammer it, it just flexes around doesn't go into place.

I cut the fender and rolled it flat ass hell, there was that annoying felt liner or whatever that took me forever to peel off.

I'd like to call this fitment, STUFFED IN THERE

theres a metal liner under quarter panel, it's almost like a metal fender lining. i managed to bang it enough to flex away and stop rubbing. it's pretty common when your really low, a few of my customers have had this issue. i had 19 inch DPE's barely 19x8 and it was rubbing against that liner. i was barely tucking tire.

i'm installing bump stops in the rear to cut down on some rubbing, and hopefully get stiffer rear springs.

Testing out my new camera lense, I picked up those cheap 40 dollar wide angle fish eyes you see floating around amazon. Pretty damn cool.







Yep, I'm missing my center caps, left it at the shop. If you look closely in the rear, the fender is pulled! Don't mind my broken sideskirt or sagging bumper, **** happens when your low. My floor jack got stuck under my sideskirt. Looking to purchase extra WORK center caps if anyone has any laying around.

thanks guys! fender rolling e46s have never been such a pain in the ass haha.

i'm getting my toe alignment tommarow, might try to reduce a degree of camber to fill in the gap better but i'm still rubbing excessively. i'm aiming for credit card clearance the actual lip of my rim is hitting the quarter panel!

I have the same problem. But I need stiffer springs. Anyone know stiffer/shorter springs that fit on KW coilovers?
