Looks great! Can you tell me the exact setup? Did you use spacers etc.?
Let us know how the car performs! I think 20 inch wheels are the perfect look, but I was considering 19's to maintain some performance.

BTW a BMW mechanic at my dealer with 30 years told me the best set up was the stock 17" wheels.

Can you take some eye level before and after with the new springs? Thanks.
Thanks for all the kudos!

So my set up is Avant Garde M368 Front 20X8.5 ET 30 Rear 20X10 ET35. Tires are Hankook Evo V12 245/35/20 Front 285/30/20 Rear. I did NOT use spacers since this set up is pretty flush with the fender.

The ride is actually very nice. The RFT that come on the car were harsh and although I went to a bigger rim... the ride actually seems softer. I really think you need at least 20inch rims on the F10.
