I love my tires and wheels! But honestly, we have our fair share of potholes - that's where the good handling comes in, I make it a game to avoid them when safe!

so far i went for the lowest springs i could find ( el cheap'os off ebay) 1.5in
had them put in and alignment done
a stubby antenna
and i just picked up some 19s for it but.......rubbing isnt the word
put'em on and took them off till i can get the fenders rolled & may have to do some -camber

your rubbing because your ebay springs arent stiff enough. theyre probbably extreamly soft which will cause bouncing which will lead to rubbing

i didnt even drive it down the road just backed it off the lift and took a couple pics

i didnt really do my homework on the offset of the rims& tires and they are almost touching the inner fender just sitting at a standstill

and i am sure what u are saying about the springs being 2 soft is truth (they seem softer than my oem 1s forsure)

Nice look...get those fenders rolled asap... On mine, my rears (were) rubbing the plastic fender liner in the back also. Take your tire off and look around for rubbing spots so you can eliminate them. Hopefully its not your springs...

Awesome! Both beautiful looking cars. How do you like the 335 compared to the ///M?

My M3 will always be my favorite BMW that I have ever owned. The 335is is nice, good exhaust sound, the hartop vert part is nice, and the new DCT leaves the old SMG in the dust. However, I'd almost sell my soul to get back the sound of individual throttle bodies at wide open throttle, (5000-8000 rpms) beside the jersey wall of the interstate. Top down of course. Power wise theyre about the same underrated 320hp vs 333 hp, but the M cars always have a "special" feeling to them. My M3 had it and my E60 M5 had it too. Theres just something about an M car that makes it more than just a BMW..
