Yes, all but the very narrowest spacers require longer wheel bolts. Good spacer kits like the ones offered by Burger include the appropriate length bolts.

This is the best I have. I still have my winters on, but I might be able to get more in a week or two.

I discovered that you can reverse with the door open. To do so: put the car in park, then open the door, then put the transmission in reverse. You'll get an audible warning and a message but you...

Assuming the wheel widths are the same as stock, and extra 10mm projection shouldn't be a problem. I put 15mm spacers on the rear and 10mm on the front (M Sport staggered 18's). In hindsight, I...

The 35's inline six is speculated to be underrated, too. Acceleration times tend to support the power gap between the two engines. It seems most modern German engines are underrated.

It really is too bad the 35 can't be had with the 8-speed. Of course, I never liked the electronic shifter, so there would still be a tradeoff for me. I wouldn't be so disappointed in the 28 if it...

I have the staggered 18's, but I think you'll find the guide is correct.

225/45/18 = 25.1" diameter
255/40/18 = 25.0"

225/35/19 = 25.2"
255/30/19 = 25.0"

The 225/40/19 would have a 26.1"...

If you're genuinely desperate for a red X1, get a 3M vinyl wrap. At $2,500 to $3,000 it's not cheap, but far less expensive than a quality respray. And it can be removed.
