Dear lord.... That fitment is seriously PERFECT. I say this almost everytime I post on this thread that your car/style of modding reminds me of the OG pswirley so much it's crazy. I hope you and him walk similar paths cause right now you continue to do it right

Crazy, Austin. I'm surprised that you haven't torn off your bumper yet.

I just moved the front strut towers in which gives you about an extra -.5 degrees. just lowering the car itself will change the geometry of the suspension and increase the NegativeCamber
I'm new to this game. My coils will be here for Christmas. How did you manage to do this? Thanks for the great detailed build threat. Car is looking great man!!

Thanks! My advice is research like crazy, it will bring the results. If you loosen the 3 strut tower bolts on each side, it allows you to slide the struts in oand out to get some camber adjustment. only about .5 degrees. dont recommend doing this unless you plan on alignming the car though. (you must punch out the metal pin on the strut tower before you are able ot make adjustments)

That's exactly what I figured. Should have googles first. Thanks for such an informaive thread. I'm no where near new to the car game, but as most know BMW's aren't your normal car. But I still love mine.

Haha yup I'm well aware okie dokie! What parking lots I can go in and which ones I can't around here haha.

As for plans with exhaust, not sure yet! Still deciding between Borla (manufactured exhaust) or a custom set up! I will surely post pictures when I do though!
