New shoes for the whip! AW e39 with 19x11 rear!
 
Hey guys! I'm Narvin from BF.c . thought I'd give you guys an update on my car! I know I will receive lots of hate for the 245 on 19x11 and the fenders so if you're gonna say something bad just don't comment.. hahah!

new setup! Could push out more in the rear but I am too cheap to go buy new spacers right now...
Front: 225/35/19 -10 19x9.5
Rear: 245/35/19 +10 19x11

Varrstoen ES 1.1.2

King 5 03-04-2012 07:30 PM

call me "ricy" but I think a roof spoiler would look good

MikesE39 03-04-2012 07:39 PM

SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wish that was my car.

z28forlife 03-04-2012 07:42 PM

Get bigger tires!

jbonly21 03-04-2012 07:49 PM

Sick, how's the 9.5 in the front, does it rub?

NoWayJose 03-04-2012 10:00 PM

crazy set up

Andreas540i 03-04-2012 10:03 PM

What suspension?

Narvin 03-04-2012 10:29 PM

Thanks everyone!!!
Running a Magnaflow setup!
Has BavAuto Supersport Coilovers, looking to switch to BC coilovers later for a stiffer setting for more lows!
+1 on the roof spoiler, I want one but haven't seen one on an AW before... scared to be a test subject!

Yes the 9.5 does rub in the front, especially since it is a -10... if I just raised it slighty it would not rub at all, but I like driving low :thumbup:

Try not to confuse hate with ridicule. I laugh at dumb stuff all the time. Doesn't mean I hate it.

Narvin's car appears to have had a lot of thought put into it and it's a clean machine. Would I ever do that to my car? Not in a million years. Do I hate on Narvin just because he did it? Not in a million years.

Now if Narvin came in here after dumping his car like that and starting telling everyone that it rides that same as it did at stock height, he never rubs on anything, and his car handles like a Formula One car, then I might offer a few comments south of positive.

The indicator for the alarm?

OP, looks great :thumbup: but whats up with the drivers side rear fender? Looks like it got a little messed up from rubbing, or when it was rolled?

Thanks hahah I definitely do NOT think it is comfortable to ride in and handles well, but I don't drive aggressively so it's fine for daily driving, and for comfort, it's not really important to me because I usually tend to ignore the bumps in the road anyways as I listen to music strolling down the road :thumbup:

Yeah pretty sure it is too! hahah
thanks!
It got messed up from being pulled, I actually got the car like that and didn't do it myself.. gonna get it fixed sooner or later when I feel like it bothers me that much :D

GreenTiger 03-05-2012 06:10 PM

No, the alarm indicator is red. I am talking about the black base of the rear view mirror that is stuck to the wind shield glass.

Looking sick! Front Plate Delete?

sorry i have no idea what you are talking about,... mind circling it in red in a pic or something?

His windshield has been replaced with a brand that doesn't paint the circle that's just the base to the mirror ... Nothing to be worried about tho
